As your world gets wider, your corporate messages need to be framed by the language, cultural context, conventions and other requirements of each specific geography you work in. The need for consistent employee communications is growing, but the paradox is that those messages need to be tailored to your various geographies.
Buck's global communication practice helps organizations deliver strategic multinational and multilingual communication programs around the world that are proven to be effective and meaningful. We're more than communicators: we're strategists, and can help ensure your message not only reaches your people through the right channels, but is effective in engaging them and driving their behaviors towards your organization's desired workplace outcomes and goals
Our global communication solution delivers a number of advantages for employers and employees.
Strategic value to global HR: We help enhance the value of your global HR programs, by integrating people and systems across geographies, cultures and languages. We deliver powerful and creative communication programs to address today's fundamental global HR challenges:
- Managing global integration

Award-winning creativity: We offer full-scale audience research and personalized communications, designed to fit local business cultures, to optimize the perception of the benefit structures in place. Our effective communication models include the use of HR technology and social media, and have proven to increase the return on our clients' investments in communication programs and people.
One message, multiple voices: To ensure communication programs work internationally and locally at the same time, translation is fully integrated into the localization strategy — not treated as an afterthought. With our parent, Xerox, Buck brings significant expertise in the translation and localization of employee communications. Xerox offers more than 2,500 mother-tongue translators, and almost 100 languages.
Global delivery: We use a hub-and-spoke system to deliver international projects and ensure local reach. We align our team with your constituents in various regions, while keeping control and strategy at the home country level.
State-of-the-art linguistic technology: Our suite of document technologies includes translation memory and translation workflow systems to ensure high efficiency, shortened cycle times, improved translation accuracy, and lower cost over time. We take industry-standard translation and terminology tools and make them "smarter" with Xerox proprietary enhancements from our Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) and our Grenoble Research Centre, France.
Integrated service delivery: We can assist you in the design of effective strategies to meet your needs. Our communicators work side-by-side with subject matter experts in retirement, health and productivity, talent and HR solutions, and compliance in jurisdictions around the world.
