Our class trip to LionBridge.
We had a great opportunity to visit an international company as a class. One of our class mate’s (Jane) mum works there and set up the tour.
We first toured around the company meeting the workers. It was crazy how many different nationalities were there from Greece to Russia to Iceland.
We then had an opportunity to learn more about the company and what it actually does. Internationalizing companies and then localizing them. This is a lot of work and time doing these projects, so it’s important that the team get along and work together. You could see that they all got on with each other and seemed like they were a big family.
We also learnt about some of the worker’s backgrounds and most of them had no experience before working in LionBridge. I know for me it gave me hope that I can get the job I want if I work hard and get myself out there.
Overall it was a very positive experience and I think all the class came away satisfied with the information that they received.
Thank you Lionbridge
Keeping the work place in tip top shape!!
For most customers one of the first things they notice when coming into your shop or company is how clean it is.
Cleanliness is so important and also how the shop is organized:
2. Easy for customers to find what they are looking for
3. Easy on the eye
4. Safe for the customer
I have recently spent a lot of time in second hand stores due to working at one and we spend every morning sweeping the floor, emptying the bins and cleaning the toilets. Because of this mostly every day customer’s comment on how clean the place is.
They will want to come back because of their good experience and also tell their friends about how clean the shop is.
If your work place is clean there is less likely that accidents will happen
Remember when you’re on your work placement or even at work cleanliness will make the difference on if the customer will come back or not. Look at your work place and think to yourself would you want to shop here.
