Countless organizations benefit greatly from having multilingual employees. However, there is only one tried and true method of ensuring that your employees have the language skills you need to stand out – Language Testing International’s speaking proficiency tests. As the only company to be licensed by the world-renowned American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), only we at LTI possess the combination of decades of experience and cutting-edge technology to provide the most accurate and reliable speaking proficiency tests you can find.
The positive aspects of having multilingual employees are numerous, and affect many different types of businesses and organizations. For example, companies with call centers are able to provide effective customer service to a much wider clientele, and therefore broaden their client base. Having employees with strong Spanish skills, for example, is invaluable in today’s United States.
Multinational corporations, or companies that seek to expand beyond the Anglophone world, will find that having employees who are able to liaise directly with their counterparts in the native language of the country affords them a major advantage. Not only will you be able to avoid the pitfalls of mistranslations and cultural misunderstandings, but you will be able to establish a rapport that would be otherwise unattainable.
With the unstoppable rise of the Internet and an increasingly globalized marketplace, the need to have multilingual employees has never been greater. With LTI’s superlative speaking proficiency tests, you can be certain that your employees have the skills they need to help you get ahead of the game.
