“Abilities wither under faultfinding and blossom with encouragement.”
--Donald A. Laird
Your company has hired a competent, intelligent employee with a pleasing personality. He has the potential to be a great asset to your company….except for one problem; it is difficult to understand his speech. His accent is so distracting that coworkers and clients
tire of putting in that extra effort required to understand him.
Another employee’s speech is too fast and choppy that listeners struggle to understand important information. The team’s relationships are negatively affected as well as the impact on the company.
When an employee has difficulty communicating with customers and lacks confidence when speaking, productivity, sales, and profits at risk.
Most employees are hard-working and represent their bosses and company well. English pronunciation and proficiency training should be seriously considered when needed. Supporting an employee that needs accent reduction training is preferable to replacing that employee.
Corporate entities benefit immensely from offering accent coaching to their international employees. Effective communication in American English is the most important skill an employee can have, surpassing intelligence and job training. In a few months of weekly training, the motivated employee can improve their speech significantly.
