Two employees from Webhelp’s Dearne Valley site have received awards at the leading global customer experience firm’s annual Star Awards ceremony. Cheryl Hawke, Senior People Advisor, was recognised as Role Model of the Year in a support role, and Neil Morton, Team Manager at Vodafone, as Role Model of the Year in an operational role.

The awards, presented at a 1960s themed gala dinner and party in Liverpool at St George’s Hall, were created eight years ago to recognise excellence across the business at a team and individual level.

Cheryl Hawke was chosen for her excellent performance, flexibility and commitment in a support role and Neil Morton was recognised for his outstanding leadership qualities and for regularly going above and beyond in support of others.

David Turner, CEO of Webhelp UK, India and SA, said:

“Role Model of the Year rewards our most inspirational or motivational colleagues, who display great leadership qualities. This is something that Cheryl has demonstrated in abundance since joining the business in 2015.

“Neil has been described by his team as a fantastic guy who will always go the extra mile for anyone whether in his team or the wider business. He is an absolute credit to Webhelp and shows what a real role model/manager should look like.

“As we always say, Webhelp is only as good as the people we employ, so it is incredibly important to recognise and reward these great examples of excellence.”

In the recognition of their achievements, Cheryl and Neil each receive a cheque for £1000.
