Workplace Languages

INCREASE EMPLOYEE PRODUCTIVITY AND REDUCE RISKS THROUGH IMPROVED LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY

Communication is a vital part of every work environment. In order to maintain safety, productivity, and employee-employer relationships, people must be able to effectively understand one another. This relates directly to DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) principles since language can be a barrier to career mobility.

With that in mind, the MVLC offers a significantly valuable service to area businesses. MVLC negotiates with employers to determine what the language needs and priorities would be for their specific work environment. Then we design whatever customized curriculum is necessary to meet those measurable objectives, provide a skilled instructor and general English curriculum, and bring classes to the work-site to teach the non-native English speaking employees. We also offer Spanish classes for employers that would like to better communicate with their clients.

Raising the language proficiency of non-native English speaking employees benefits everyone involved: the business gets a safer, more productive and motivated worker, and the employee gets the ability to more effectively navigate not only the worksite, but also life in general.

Contact us at eslworkplace@midvalleyliteracycenter.org  to discuss having English or Spanish classes at your place of business.
