There was deserved praise and tributes to all those who were shortlisted, with the judges acknowledging the difficult job they had in determining one winner from each category.

Webhelp Chief Executive, David Turner, acknowledged another exceptional year for the Webhelp Group, strongly supported by its UK teams. 

“Webhelp has undergone a transformational period in the past year, expanding our footprint on two continents, adding to our client portfolio and continually upgrading our systems and how we operate. Our teams are a vital component in what we do and what we are able to offer and I believe it is very important that we take the opportunity to recognise this.
