The whitepaper examines the changing landscape of learning and how organisations can close the gap between technology usage and capitalise on workforce talent.
For many companies looking to expand their operations or revenue streams, multilingual communication can be an asset across all activities, not just for sales and marketing. Effective cross-border communication can help to solve problems, avoid delays and enhance productivity across all sectors.
Armin Hopp, Founder and President at Speexx, comments, The rise of global ERP systems with integrated talent and performance management suites creates an ideal opportunity for many organisations to consolidate training and talent management resources. There is a distinct link between a skilled workforce, efficiency and profitability. Savvy organisations are becoming aware of the fact that communication skills training is a vital component of strengthening organisational talent and mobility management.
According to Speexx, there are enormous opportunities for organisations to grasp the full potential of technology and apply it to the broader context of staff learning methods, yet many of these are being missed by organisations. In a survey conducted by Towards Maturity, a report based on eight years research involving over 1,800 organisations, the top three barriers to the implementation of learning technologies were cited to be lack of knowledge about its potential use and implementation (62%), lack of skills to implement and manage the learning system and reluctance by staff to implement new technology (61%).
Hopp adds, While the automation and streamlining of business processes is essential, it is important not to lose sight of businesses as consisting of people with individual skills and talent that needs to be nurtured and developed. Blended language learning incorporated as part of a long-term talent management strategy is the lifeblood of an organisation, transforming staff members communication skills, improving skill mobility and helping the business to flourish.
