How we use English language analytics to improve your team's performance...

1. Test people’s English ability

From new hires to management, our testing system gives you information about people's English level & communication ability required for business. Our tests assign each person a unique English Performance Indicator (EPI), as well as their level based on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).

3. Create more focused messaging

Research shows that to fully understand the meaning, 95% of the words need to be understood. We analyse your company's documents to test their suitability levels for your employees. Using this data-driven approach you get recommendations on how to deliver your message in a more focused way that everyone can understand.

Not everyone speaks up

Did you know that Only 7% of non-native English speakers feel confident using English at work? So if you want to hire someone for their experience or knowledge, putting them in certain teams can inhibit them. While others may not say anything when they don’t understand something. This lack of confidence impacts communication internally & can have disastrous effects on external communication with clients. Studies show that on average, companies in the USA & UK lose $62.4m per year each due to miscommunication. (The Holmes Report)

Some Potential Risks of English Ability on Teams
