for employers

Today's businesses demand effective communication skills from their employees. Regional dialects and foreign accents can result in decreased productivity, lost profits, and frustration.

Benefits of accent modification training for your employees:
  • Increased productivity
  • Improved job performance
  • Improved customer relations
  • Increased profitability
  • Improved employee morale
  • Decreased turnover rates
  • Improved credibility in the eyes of others

Business costs associated with poor communication far outweigh the costs of remedial training.

Invest in your employees.

Discussing accent modification is a delicate matter. Supervisors, human resource personnel and managers who are interested in sending an employee for accent modification training may not be comfortable addressing the issue with the employee.
