Creating 3 new AI-powered translation technologies was an instant bonus Guildhawk took from remote working. Increasing staff wellbeing and productivity and being able to invest more into the company’s Innovate UK backed partnership with Sheffield Hallam University was an unexpected win.
An exclusive insight into how the company did this, comparing models and research are announced in an article by Claire Brown, Head of Operations. The article is available here.
In the article, Claire tells how the Queens Award winning, woman owned language technology company reduced office space and reinvested rent money into people and new R&D. This included enrolling staff into online courses at Harvard Business School and launching Guildhawk Aided, a new secure machine translation software to help customers.
Guildhawk’s new hybrid working model did result in teams across the globe working in new collaborative ways. And in more creative places very different to an office. Creating virtual human avatars in green screen studios and producing multilingual training videos are now part of the ‘new normal’ at Guildhawk. Meanwhile, the company’s long-standing support for artists and musicians also increased through a partnership with the world famous British bandleader Alex Mendham.
