Employee accent reduction classes are an important part of the onboarding process for foreign-born and LEP (Limited English Proficient) employees. Learning a new skill, job or taking on a new responsibility can be challenging enough- especially in blue collar industries like construction or manufacturing- but doing so with a limited understanding of the language can make things overwhelming, and unsafe. Every day companies hire top talent from other countries, and bring on new employees who speak ESL (English as a Second Language) who don't have any problems being understood. It is in those other circumstances, when an incredibly talented individual is brought onto the team at work, but your employees have a hard time understanding and communicating with them because of a thick accent. What do you do in these moments? Whether your company is in a blue or white collar industry, ensuring your employees can communicate effectively is vitally important for the health and wellbeing of your employees and your business. When employees are having trouble understanding, when deliverables and timelines aren't met due to miscommunication, when instructions are misinterpreted... the quality of work declines, and can even threaten physical safety. The solution to these problems involves finding an employee accent reduction class that fits your needs; and considering these added benefits, you can't go wrong!
1. Employee accent reduction classes increases employee retention ⏳
When employees feel valued, and know their employer is invested in their professional growth- they remain loyal. These days there are so many reasons employees leave their jobs, but giving them concrete reasons to stay helps your business in the long run. According to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the average cost to onboard a new employee is around $4,100 per new hire. By giving your people a reason to stay loyal, companies save hundreds of thousands of dollars by allocating a small percentage towards employee accent reduction classes.
2. Avoiding safety violation lawsuits with employee accent reduction classes👷♀️
Whether your employees prefer online language training classes, or you've decided that onsite language training is the most beneficial for company needs; ensuring your workplace is safe is more involved than the physical space. Because all of our classes are 100% customizable✅, our industry specific language courses allow your employees to learn correct pronunciation along with essential vocabulary for their individual responsibilities. Expert instructors will teach your employees either in-person, or via our highly engaging LIVE webinar style online class✅. The bottom line is, employees who don't know how to communicate properly or who are not easily understood increase the chances of an accident or fatality at work. If you can save time and money while avoiding safety violation lawsuits, why wouldn't you jump at the opportunity?
3. Employee accent reduction broadens your talent pool🌏
News travels fast these days, regardless if it is good news or bad. For a company to invest in their people means that they have a different approach to achieving their goals; and employees take notice of that. We have a similar people centered, business focused✅ philosophy: meaning that we meet your employees where they are at by centering the class around their ability and needs, while remaining focused on your objective to get them where you need them to be. When you can acknowledge top talent and provide them with the tools to improve communication in order to be successful, your company can extend recruitment efforts and offer something others cannot.
