At the turn of the millennium, two young French entrepreneurs, Frederic Jousset and Olivier Duha, set out with the specific purpose of enabling and coaching consumers and brands to engage digitally. Webhelp was established.
Through evolution and acquisition, today Webhelp is a 50,000 people-strong global leader in business process outsourcing (BPO). We continue to specialise in customer experience but our capabilities extend across voice, social and digital channels. Our outsourced services have also expanded to include payment management, sales and marketing services.
We engineer customer experiences on behalf of some of the world’s most progressive brands and through our transformational outsourcing proposition we can drive performance improvement, deliver a real and lasting transformation in clients’ operating models and deliver material financial advantage. Our ability to deliver is powered by data and applied analytics, which play a vital role in our work as a digital company.
Today the business is still led by its two founders, and their entrepreneurial spirit is woven deeply into the fabric of our culture. With a mission to “push the limits of customer experience and business process optimisation,” people are empowered and encouraged to push the boundaries.
Since its inception, Webhelp has grown significantly with more than 500 partners being served by our global teams which cross 35 countries and more than 140 customer experience hubs. In the last four years alone, our revenues have grown by more than 250%. We achieved this by investing in our people and the environment they work in, and developing the analytical and operating capability to deliver truly transformational outsourcing with solutions which meet the challenges of a now omni-channel world.
