How does TransPerfect define company culture?
We asked a member of our Special Projects team, Junior Recruiter Jamara Myers, to tell us what sets TransPerfect apart.
Jamara: This is by far my favorite question to answer, when asked by those who are curious in learning more about TransPerfect! The culture at TransPerfect is my favorite aspect of working here. Our culture creates such a sense of belonging, which in turn makes it very easy for our employees to uphold our core values and put their best foot forward in the work they do.
My favorite core values are Own It and Teamwork, and the values work together to create the environment that I love so much. At TransPerfect, we encourage everyone to view their work as if this was their business and they were looking for growth, taking on projects and Owning It from start to finish. By doing this, TransPerfect inspires innovation and the constant pursuit of growth. Teamwork encourages and reminds each person that they are not alone. One thing I always heard when I first started my career at TransPerfect as a sales intern is, “There is no such thing as a silly question,” and I saw this to be true on every level. As an intern who asked a million questions a day, I was never turned away by anyone who was bombarded with my questions. All of my questions were answered because here at TransPerfect we understand the value of lifting one another up.
The two values together work hand in hand to create a strong foundational base that can be seen all over TransPerfect, from sales and production to tech! As I mentioned earlier, a sense of belonging is important and can go a very long way in shaping the future of a successful employee. I can very easily say that I feel that I belong at TransPerfect. I can be my most authentic self at work without holding any part of myself back. This is a powerful feeling that I’m sure many other people can’t say about their employers. Being able to be authentically me allows my work to flow more naturally and makes coming to work much more enjoyable. It encourages me to put my best foot forward in all the work I do because I know my company respects me for who I am and values my work.
The teams I have been a part of have also played a huge role in my love for the culture at TransPerfect. Each team has upheld and promoted the core values and culture that I love so much. It is apparent across the board that TransPerfect values its people more than anything else!
