Employee English Courses Should Be Your Company Resolution

Employee English courses should never be one size fits all. Every employee learns at a different pace, and requires a different approach when learning new information. Some retain information better when it is demonstrated and others need to write something out or explain it themselves to achieve understanding. There is neither a "right way" nor a "wrong way" there are just differences, and they are all valid. So when decision makers and leaders sit down to formulate new goals for their employees, it is important to have a good understanding of how they each learn. Especially when creating goals and development plans, leaders need to take their employees capabilities into consideration. Making sure that goals are attainable and that they have clear methods of tracking progress is essential. So as we move through the new year, what kinds of language training goals can you set for employees?

English Training For Tech Companies & 3 Reasons To Book Your FREE Demo

English training for tech companies is an especially useful resource that shouldn't be overlooked when creating a new employee onboarding experience. Many H.R (Human Resources) professionals seek a 360 approach when creating an employee training package, but often overlook the simplest, most rudimentary component: corporate English training. When compared to multi-national tech companies, this is a touch more understandable for those smaller, "mom-and-pop" businesses local to the United States. But when you stop to really think about it, even these smaller businesses would be wise to expand their new employee training plan- especially when the average company spends between $7,500 - $28,000 onboarding a single new associate. By expanding your onboarding training to include English training for ESL employees, you get higher quality employees  from a larger pool of candidates, and they receive training they will use for the rest of their lives even after they leave the position. Employees who receive this kind of comprehensive training are more likely to stay employed for a longer period of time; because their employer is financially invested in their development. The IT companies that recognize this end up saving money   year-over-year by actively lowering turnover rate. Not convinced yet? If you are an HR professional or company leader, here's 3 reasons to book your free demo today...

Cultural Competence Skills Training for Healthcare Workers

Cultural competence skills training is an essential investment for every company; whether multinational or domestic. Our cross cultural training program is designed to create awareness, and build sensitivity where a mutual understanding doesn't exist. To put it another way: our cultural sensitivity training program will give your associates an understanding of different countries or cultures they will be exposed to, by providing appropriate ways of addressing these differences in professional settings. Whether you are from the United States, China or Ethiopia- foreigners usually have a knack for sticking out among locals. And sticking out shouldn't be a bad thing, but when it is- it's usually due to someone else's unfortunate reaction that makes sticking out a bad thing.
