Warrington Centre scoops Campaign for Learning award.
Webhelp UK’s Warrington centre has been awarded the 2011 National Award for Inspiring Learning by the Campaign for Learning and sponsors The Open University. The company, which provides contact centre services, was presented with their award and a cheque for £100 by representatives from Campaign for Learning and the Open University at a special prize giving ceremony in October.
The Inspiring Learning Award aims to recognise organisations that have demonstrated how they have inspired learning through their Learning at Work Day activities. Webhelp UK ran a range of inspirational activities and initiatives on Learning at Work Day to encourage employees to think about their own development and progress at work. The company used suggestions from staff to develop an array of workshops and sessions, which included job shadowing, demonstrations from partner companies, bite sized learning and talks from local community projects. Employees were also able to sign up for recognised qualifications to support their career development. The day was a fantastic success with enthused staff eager to carry on learning.
Webhelp UK’s commitment to staff development for all their employees shone through
Tricia Hartley, Chief Executive of the Campaign for Learning, which co-ordinates Learning at Work Day nationally said, ‘We are delighted to present this award to Webhelp UK.
