In recent decades, there has been a rapid globalization of markets and skilled labor. In the past, the primary factor that drove US companies overseas was off shoring for cheaper labor. Today, however, the focus has shifted to acquiring skilled talent and gaining accessibility to fast growing markets. Businesses of every size must bolster their knowledge of other languages and cultures in order to compete effectively. In this session, Livemocha CEO Michael Schutzler will present a case for language training as an essential workplace tool along with examples of organizations that have created a more productive and dynamic workforce through the implementation of virtual language training on a company-wide basis.
