2017 is the year of the job seeker. According to trusted sources like Fortune and Indeed, the global economy is gradually recovering from the Great Recession and more employers are looking to hire—but there’s a smaller pool of talented candidates to choose from than in previous years. This is great news for job seekers hoping to be enticed by new opportunities, but it also means companies need to work even harder to attract (and retain) new talent.
How can you stay ahead of the competition, keep your team happy and improve your core business functions all at the same time? Give them access to a flexible English learning course like Voxy. Here are three reasons why:
1. Attract and retain new talent
Access to professional development opportunities is a great perk for job seekers, and employees will appreciate your company’s commitment to investing in their careers.
2. Connect with clients and colleagues around the world
English is the lingua franca of global business. By providing English training for your team, you can increase opportunities to expand into new markets and support communication with international colleagues.
3. People who speak multiple languages make the best employees
Learning a new language actually changes the structure of your brain and can lead to more original thinking. Offer a language learning experience for employees to usher in new perspectives and creative solutions.
