Online corporate English classes are so beneficial for every company hiring workers who speak English as a Second Language (ESL) that they should honestly be obligatory. Aside from the clear barriers that a Limited English Proficiency (LEP) poses, like a decline in productivity and poor communication, it can also pose a very real threat to worker safety; which is often overlooked when business leaders and owners weigh the risks against rewards for offering corporate English classes to associates. Statistically, ESL workers are more likely to find employment in blue-collar industries like construction, agriculture and manufacturing that involve regularly operating heavy machinery, in loud and high-stress environments, and depending on the specific job can even demand technical work in collaboration with others. Business owners and decision makers are correct to hire ESL workers- they bring a variety of skills and techniques that are an asset to American companies. But they are gambling with lives and health and threatening livelihoods by failing to incorporate online English courses into their onboarding programs. Corporations have a responsibility to their workforce and their loved ones to keep the workplace safe. And while some companies might get lucky, and never have an accident at work with their ESL workers... it only takes 1 time; 1 conversation where instructions were misunderstood. It is a gamble that business owners make- one way or another, whether conscious or not- when they opt out of corporate English courses for associates. Nothing is ever guaranteed in life, but being proactive with worker safety is a clear step towards minimizing risk. Here's some ways that online English classes can help businesses in the agricultural industry...
