Webhelp UK Group Business Director, Jodie Smith was featured by Insider Media in their Northern Powerhouse series – where she outlined what the initiative means to her, how to make the North an attractive place to work and build a business, and the importance of investment to ensure all regions can contribute to the UK’s Covid-19 recovery.

The Northern Powerhouse has the goal of boosting economic growth in the North of England, particularly in the “Core Cities” of Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Sheffield, Hull and Newcastle.

Jodie highlighted that, as Webhelp recognises with our own vision to make businesses more human, this growth should always start by investing in people. She added:

“Infrastructure and technology are of course vital enablers but we must always focus on the talent in the North, supporting their development, and helping them reach their full potential. Collaboration is so important too — we encourage our teams to embody that spirit, as there are infinite opportunities to work closely with clients and partners in our regions and beyond.”

“At Webhelp, we’re already investing in our people through training and employee wellbeing programmes. As a result, our clients know that our talented people can be game-changers for their businesses. A Northern Powerhouse that is firing on all cylinders will help to support the investment we’re making to ensure that we keep skilled employees in the region.”
