Is the Language Barrier an Obstacle When You Hire Global Employees?
Did you know that about 13% of the world speaks English? Estimates indicate that approximately 1.75 billion people speak English worldwide. Less than 5% of the world speaks English as their native language, but many people speak English as a second language, which makes it one of the most widely spoken languages across the globe and the go-to language for many global businesses.
While these are impressive statistics, it is even more important to businesses, corporations, and companies who want to expand their team. Emerging markets – like Georgia, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan – have growing populations of talented English speakers that are ready to contribute at your company and TRUSS can help you find them.

How Do Multilingual Workers Benefit a Company?
English has become the language of business for many companies worldwide with many companies mandating that English be the common corporate language. Businesses that include Daimler-Chrysler, Nokia, Samsung, Renault, SAP, Technicolor, Microsoft, and more. With the growth of the remote workforce, it is even more important to embrace a multilingual workforce, and there are multiple benefits to employing global employees who know, understand, speak, and write multiple languages.
- Better Communication Skills – Global employees who can speak English and their native language are more adept at listening, problem-solving, and communication skills due to their experiences learning a second language and this leads to improved communication in the workplace.
- Better Intellectual Skills – Multilingual employees who have mastered English as a second language have been shown to possess better cognitive skills that can have a positive impact on your business. Multilingual employees have the ability to transition to different tasks faster than those who do not have that skill set and these individuals tend to be more analytical and innovative with better decision-making skills than many who are not multilingual.
- Creates a Multicultural Workforce – Language is a key component of culture and when you add multilingual workers to your payroll, it expands the cultural knowledge of the team and can lead to increased teamwork and collaboration.
- Improves Creativity – When you hire employees from different parts of the world, not only will you add language skills and culture to your team, you will add different perspectives and beliefs. These different world outlooks can help create a more creative environment that can lead to new processes and methods for your business.
