What to Look for in an Employer: The Best of the Localization Industry

What to Look for in an Employer: The Best of the Localization Industry

Today’s best employers recognize that their people are discerning and career-oriented, looking for the best long-term fit for their career progression.

In fact, progression and well-being are very much at the heart of Donnelley Language Solutions, which is now part of SDL’ long-standing strategy to invest in our people. As a result, we have been recognized as a top employer in Adaptive Globalization’s Best Employers in Localization Awards 2017.

We are so proud to be named winner in the Career Progression and Employee Benefits categories and as Runner-Up in the Employee Well-Being and Employee Retention categories. We believe that investing in our employees is one of the best strategies for their success and our business.

Our employees have the opportunity to take training to enhance their hard and soft skills. We find that employees with this opportunity are motivated and happy which in turn enables them to progress in their career and reach their full potential.

In addition, we provide regular internal training and refresher sessions on our processes to enable everyone to have the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their day-to-day work.

We believe that in putting the well-being of our employees as a company priority, we set ourselves up for improved customer experience throughout all regions.

Our employees are united by the same core values that guide our everyday actions: client first always, honesty, respect, teamwork, accountability, responsiveness and confidentiality.

All of our global offices provide a safe, secure, well-equipped and happy working environment for all our employees. At our larger locations employee committees are running charitable initiatives in their local communities and organizing regular team-building activities. We found this has had a huge positive impact in helping employees get to know their colleagues.

We are proud to offer our employees competitive benefits in line with local practices. We provide opportunities for career growth and mobility. A number of employees have started out in junior positions and have developed their competencies and career within our organization. We give employees autonomy in their role, the opportunity to succeed and be rewarded. We promote career mobility whether it is through a geographical move or through a change of role (promotion or lateral move) within the same department or in a different one.

We are always on the lookout for industry talent and we work closely with Adaptive Globalization to tap into this pool of talented people who can fit our culture. If you have a taste for the language services industry and want to work in a company which puts its employees first, SDL is the company for you. We look forward to working with you!
