Speaking with Authority—the Case for Teaching English Language Proficiency on the Job
Besides improving communication skills, language training can increase inclusion, productivity, safety conditions, and employee satisfaction. For example, immigrant workers who speak their new country’s language well earn 5 to 15 percent more than those who do not. Workers in non-English speaking countries who learn English can increase business vocabulary and facilitate understanding in the global business environment. Most companies consider multi-lingual employees an asset.
