How does Webhelp support employees’ well-being?

Through the WebHEALTH well-being programme, we lead many initiatives that focus on the physical and mental health of our people. Examples include our annual Kilometer Challenge, in which we cover many kilometers together, and the WeCare initiative which helps employees feel comfortable in their own skin. In addition, we are fully committed to growth and develpment. Many colleagues who now hold management positions within Webhelp started out in a Customer Advisor role.

What is impact sourcing?

Impact Sourcing is the practice of hiring high potential but disadvantaged people in order to reintegrate them into society. This is more than a Corporate Social Responsibility initiative. Rather, it is a business model that can help organizations meet and exceed their quality and staffing objectives. By employing people who have limited opportunities, often from low-income areas, companies can contribute to the well-being of their business, people, and local communities. Webhelp is a strong advocate for diversity and inclusion, and welcomes employees from all walks of life.
