Lionbridge, the world’s most trusted global communications platform, is pleased to announce that it has won the Technology division award for Employee Engagement in the Conference Board’s Excellence in Marketing & Communications Awards Program. This prestigious program honors organizations for their innovative use of communications technologies.
Last year, Lionbridge developed a new intranet known as The Bridge to help its more than 6,000 employees around the world live out its mission to break barriers and build bridges. The Bridge has supported the change management and transformation of Lionbridge by reenergizing and reengaging the global “Pride.” It has created a direct feedback loop between senior management and a global workforce and improved communication and collaboration across departments and countries.
