A leading translation service provider offers the latest solutions in multi-national workplace innovation


Wednesday 19 September 2018



On Friday 7 September, PAB Languages Centre Ltd, experts in the workplace and cultural diversity, launched the New Workplace Dynamics - New Rules event at the Allia Future Business Centre in Peterborough.

This half-day seminar brought together speakers from PAB Languages, Personnel Advice and Solutions and Franklins Solicitors who shared their insights to show how employers can adapt their external and internal communication channels to tackle costs of developing their employees, engaging better their multi-national workforce and optimise productivity and performance.

Throughout the morning, attendees heard keynotes talking about the hidden costs of managing multinational workforce within the businesses, interesting insights into mitigation and conflict resolution as well as the management of increased staff rotation and inconsistent quality.

PAB’s Managing Director Iwona Lebiedowicz, hosting the event, said: “Never before have employers dependent upon multinational workforce needed to challenge assumptions so radically and find more effective ways to communicate with their staff.”

Meanwhile Chris Moses, from Personnel Advice and Solutions Ltd, spoke about the challenges faced by Employers post-Brexit and Sarah Canning of Franklins Solicitors shared insights on the importance of workplace mediation and conflict resolution.

Iwona Lebiedowicz, introduced the PAB MAGNET – a language and cultural business assessment, developed by PAB, to support businesses that employ a multinational workforce to ensure they optimise their productivity and retention through more effective communication and higher engagement levels.

MAGNET Assessment can help a business increase productivity and profits while reducing the hidden risk of managing a multicultural workforce.

During the second half of the morning, delegates engaged with each other through networking, learning from the industry experts and sharing experiences.

Head of Operations at PAB Languages Centre, Ruta Rubina, said: “With multi-lingual workforce, clients depend upon ‘people within the workforce’ to relay the communication of business-critical information. The accuracy of the language, empathy and understanding of cultural differences of a multi-national workforce are critical to the effective communication of this business-critical information. Using non-professional translators has the hidden costs of inefficiencies whilst placing the business, brand, and potential employees, at risk.”

PAB Languages Centre team was delighted to receive a brilliant feedback from our seminar attendees:
“I really enjoyed the seminar. Material and group interaction were a great benefit. Good venue too.”
“Thank you and all your staff for a great morning.”
“We truly enjoyed the event and the experience. I will definitely recommend you to other HR Colleagues.”
“I really enjoyed the event… great with the opportunity to network and learn from each other.”
“You delivered an excellent interactive session about the practicalities and the cultural nuances, which companies need to be aware of. Our delegates went home extremely pleased with what they had learned.”
