- Verbling, a language learning company, has found new opportunity in a job market that needs help breaking down language barriers, says Brandon Vigliarolo at Tech Republic.
- Recently the company released its new service that will cater specifically to international language needs of businesses, called Verbling Enterprise. Certified language instructors are paired with employees, and HR can track their progress through an innovative reporting system.
- Early launch companies of Verbling Enterprise include fashion retail Inditex, and Volkswagon Group.
In a growing international business scene, there is no substitute for having multi-lingual employees who can communicate with each other. More companies have off-shored certain functions of their business, such as customer support and technical development. So too, skill shortages have created a need to work with international and remote employees who may speak other languages.
The Verbling launch addresses language learning in a practical way. This is a model for how other companies may want to approach their language learning needs.
