Our qualitative study on career management was designed to provide an in-depth understanding of what is happening in the field of career management today, including the reasons why companies undertake programs in this area and the challenges they face in doing so.
Qualitative interviews for this report were conducted with senior leaders of global corporations between March 2016 and June 2016. We also interviewed and observed demonstrations of solution providers during this same time frame. Semistructured interviews were conducted via telephone in English. This semistructured approach allowed the research team the flexibility to more deeply explore innovative practices as they arose.
For many companies, language barriers increase as business
globalization becomes the norm rather than the exception.
Perhaps a call center agent cannot handle customer contact
in an unfamiliar language. Or a manager travels to a face-toface
meeting only to sit across a conference table from clients
wanting to speak in their own native language. Even within
your organization, teams across global geographies must
collaborate to achieve collective goals, but language barriers
often stand in their way.
Meanwhile, HR leaders are tasked with recruiting and
retaining top talent and L&D managers must align programs
with business goals. Each of these scenarios and areas of
responsibility have something in common: A clear need for
company-sponsored training to develop employees’ language
proficiency so they can engage successfully with colleagues
and customers anywhere.
Thousands of learners were surveyed about the impact of
language training with Rosetta Stone® business solutions.1
