Language Classes For Employees & Safety In Landscaping

Language classes for employees don't have to start and end with traditional ESL (English as a Second Language). Giving you the freedom to customize our curriculum✅, we allow decision makers to create an online ESL course that actually works for you. There are so many good things that come from providing English courses for employees. But one of the biggest is peace of mind. As one of the most hazardous industries in the service sector, business owners and decision makers must consider the risks that come with the work. Contact with heavy machinery, exposure to the elements, electrical currents, slips or falls and working closely with hazardous materials come with the territory. In fact, landscaping is one of the most hazardous industries in the service sector. According to the 2020 census bureau report, an average of 197 landscapers die from job-related injuries each year. Per 100,000 workers, there are approximately 25 deaths compared to the 3.8 for all industries. So, when 1 in 3 landscaping employees in the United States are foreign born, those decision makers have a lot more to consider by way of employee safety.

Our Online English Course Helps Employees Around The Holidays

When you choose us for corporate language classes, we evaluate each person and their level of understanding the English language. We then create a customized curriculum based on your business needs✅ and where you want them to be at the end of class, by creating realistic goals for them. For instance, if someone is in class and has zero previous exposure to the English language - it would be unrealistic to expect that person to write a college-level essay at the end of class. By setting goals that are realistic for your employees and your company, our English courses for companies will exceed expectations in a timely manner. Our language courses for companies are even customizable to your personal industry- like construction or manufacturing for example - where we are able to center the curriculum around your employees' real life jobs and skills. But how do our corporate language courses help them during the holiday season?

Online Corporate English Classes For The Agriculture Industry

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...

English Courses For Companies And How To Set Expectations

English courses for companies can be as specific or as broad as you need them to be. Our approach to online corporate English courses incorporates your business goals and objectives into the curriculum to provide a truly customized learning experience for your employees. The reason? Not everyone learns at the same pace, and some people in class might have previously studied English at some point in the past, and therefore have a leg-up on their coworkers. Everyone approaches learning differently, which is why we take a people centered, business focused  approach with our corporate ESL (English as a Second Language) classes. By centering your employees, who will actually be learning in our corporate English courses, they are more likely to retain the information as it is relevant to their real-life jobs because the English they learn is business focused. Taught by expert instructors, our English courses for employees are remote and 100% LIVE with real time instruction to provide the most convenient and successful online learning experience possible. So what kind of expectations do you need to set with your employees before class begins? And how long will it take for them to become fluent in English?
