Webhelp doubles number of people in Nuremberg with the addition of 500 H&M customer support employees
The responsible authorities have officially approved the transfer of fashion brand H&M’s Nuremberg customer service center to Webhelp, a leading global customer experience BPO player. The companies, having already signed an agreement in this regard on 19 October 2022, will see Webhelp operate the service center from 1 December onwards under its own name. With this acquisition, Webhelp doubles the number of its employees in Nuremburg and is now one of the largest employers in the industry in northern Bavaria. Today, Webhelp employs more than 110,000 employees in over 60 countries.
Webhelp's German headquarters in Nuremberg already provides an attractive working environment with state-of-the-art technical equipment for over 500 employees. Furthermore, Webhelp is committed to investing in the development and wellbeing of its customer advisors, known as 'game-changers,' around the world. Webhelp will welcome the 500 employees of the H&M Service center from today, 1 December, to the Webhelp family with terms and conditions that will remain unchanged for a period of at least two years. At the same time, customers of the Swedish fashion brand can look forward to a high-quality service experience from a global leader in this industry.
"For H&M the transfer of the customer service center to Webhelp is a bridge to the future of service excellence: we are building on a trusted partnership that ensures the security of our colleagues at the Nuremberg site while offering new strengths for exceptional customer service," affirms Joakim Eskilsson, Global Head of Customer Service at H&M. This intensifies the close collaboration between the two companies, a partnership that has been in place since 2018.”
