How Language Testing Helps You Find, Retain, and Grow Top Performers

Recorded September 14, 2021 | 1:30 PM EST


This session will present several case studies from companies such as KPMG, Sykes, and World Bank who have dramatically improved their language assessment process for reskilling and upskilling current employees using Emmersion’s language assessment engine.


  • Reskilling and upskilling employees for language ability is vital for companies with a multilingual workforce, both from a resource management perspective as a company, but also from an employee retention perspective.
  • It’s often difficult to get the buy-in and investment from leadership to prioritize this as much as it deserves.
  • So, HR professionals need a way that is valid, fair, and cost-effective to measure the progress of current employees’ language ability to establish benchmarks and implement more effective, cohorted training programs.
"[Certified language ability] is a competitive advantage [that improves] reputations with clients [and ultimately] helps [companies] win more deals."
