International, dynamic, professional.
Our employees are united by a common passion for languages and cultures. This fosters a fundamental sense of open-mindedness that is reflected in the way we all work together. Berlitz is shaped by people who see themselves in the services we offer and devote themselves to the work they do for us. Whether it’s a language instructor from Australia, a Language Center Director from France, a receptionist from Colombia or a Local Instructional Supervisor from Ireland – this is where people from different cultural backgrounds come together to share their diverse work and life experience, along with their uniquely shaped views of the world.
A place where everyone works as a team in an atmosphere marked by open and creative collaboration. They all aim to inspire in others a new-found passion for languages and cultures, and to continually share the "Berlitz family" spirit with others. Everyone makes their personal contribution to the success of the team.
Culture and Diversity
Berlitz has signed the “Diversity Charta,” thus committing itself to remaining an organization that is free of prejudice, and one which respects and values each and every unique individual. Our staff members come from over 40 different countries and this exceptional cultural diversity is what makes our team so special.
As a member of the strategic policy initiative UN Global Compact, Berlitz is committed to aligning all of its business practices and strategies with ten principles relating to human rights, labor standards, environmental protection and anti-corruption measures.
Berlitz Female Quotas
Berlitz leads the way when it comes to placing women in leadership roles. 75% of our employees and 72% of our executive managers are female.
Berlitz also balances age diversity. Nearly a quarter of our staff respectively falls into each 10-year age group from 25 to 65.
We are proud of our very low employee turnover rate. Many of our employees have been with us for a number of years and have progressed into a wide variety of exciting positions within the company.
Berlitz offers opportunities for a number of exciting careers based on personal qualifications, your personality and organizational structures. For example, you can continue your own professional development along a predefined career path by progressing from Sales Trainee to Center Director or from an Instructor to a Local Instructional Supervisor. Alternatively, you can adopt a more flexible approach to embarking on your new career. We are committed to promoting the potential of all of our staff members to ensure you enjoy working at Berlitz in the long term. That’s why we are always there for our employees and welcome their ideas for their own professional development.
In addition to the many options we offer for climbing our corporate ladder, there are also other ways in which employees can assume more responsibility – for example, by becoming involved in special nationwide project groups that tackle a variety of topics.
