LinkedIn Learning Solutions recently released their 2017 Workplace Learning Report, presenting the top issues on the minds of L&D professionals in organizations across the US and Canada. Nearly 70% of their respondents said that developing the talent of employees is a key issue for organizational leadership, but that to gain additional resources and corporate commitment, L&D “must demonstrate a business impact.”
At the same time, half of the learning professionals in the survey said that they are “challenged to get employees to make time for learning and development,” and that employees are demanding modern format for learning beyond simple classroom training.
In short, organizational leadership and employees want relevant skills training, delivered efficiently, with measurable return on investment. One area of learning that meets all of these requirements is Business English. The demand for English language competency is growing worldwide, driven by globalization, outsourcing, and the need for workers at every level to work with partners, colleagues and customers across linguistic barriers.
Business English not only provides individuals with useful, marketable skills, it develops organizational competency that can be quantified, measured and reported to stakeholders.
