Language skills in employees boosts external and internal communication
External and internal communication in shared and serviced offices could be improved by hiring people with language skills a survey by Rosetta Stone has found.
The poll was carried out on 493 employers with 80 per cent saying it is very important with most saying communication between employees was more important than communication between an employee and customer.
Employee success being achieved relies only on beginner or intermediate levels of language skills, according to 83 per cent of those surveyed.
According to the Associated Press, 66 per cent of the world are bilingual and 38 per cent of citizens of the UK report that they can speak or understand a second language.
