Welcome to BELA 2023

BELA is here to celebrate the very best employers within the Language Services industry from around the world. We seek to acknowledge and applaud those Language Service Providers, both big and small, that are striving to make a difference and that continue to make the Language Services industry an excellent career choice and an attractive sector for everyone, from Graduates to C-Level executives. These awards allow us to publicly acknowledge and advertise those employers that go above and beyond when it comes to looking after and developing their staff.

Every good employer knows that success and failure of a business is down to its employees. It is no secret that happy and productive employees lead to great growth and a successful business. Positive workplace cultures are therefore essential in giving people a sense of fulfilment and motivation, encouraging them to go the extra mile and to delight customers.

This year we have opened applications to just 5 key categories that were specifically chosen to highlight LSP’s that look after and develop their staff. All entrants are then split into two groups for reasons of fairness, those were under $10m revenue and over $10m revenue.

For our industry to continue its growth and continue to push the boundaries of communication across the planet, it is imperative that we attract talent from other sectors, inspire graduates to pursue careers in Language Services, and retain the fantastic global talent in this industry today.

These awards recognize those LSPs who make it a priority to support their staff to achieve more than they thought possible. LSPs that ensures staff is provided with the right tools, platform, and environment to perform at the highest level and to provide an exceptional service for their clients.

The awards acknowledge those that provide a continuous opportunity for learning and development, that creates a stable and secure work atmosphere where the wellbeing of staff comes first.

We are lucky to be working in such an attractive, diverse, multicultural, exciting and fast growing industry.
