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.

Automated workforce management systems range from quite simplistic to highly complex, with a wide range of price tags to match. This paper will help contact center managers navigate the choices.
In good economic times, success simply means keeping pace. After all, the market is demanding your company’s products and services, and your responsibility is simple: keep up with the demand no matter what it takes.
