The healthcare industry is evolving at a rapid pace from both technology and business perspectives. New technologies are
dramatically improving healthcare, from diagnostic imaging and scanning tools to the digitization of medical records. From
the business side, the industry continues to consolidate, with metropolitan or regional medical providers absorbing local
clinics and rural practices, and large retailers acquiring pharmacies, minute clinics, and urgent care facilities. As a result,
many healthcare companies are now competing with retailers for business.
This competition may be good for the customers (i.e., the patients) who are demanding higher levels of care and a better
overall experience. This could mean better access to new diagnostic tests, test results, and specialists who may be located
far from the patient’s location. Healthcare providers need to work toward providing the same care and experience to
customers in their main facilities as they do in distributed clinics, ur
For many companies, language barriers increase as business
globalization becomes the norm rather than the exception.
Perhaps a call center agent cannot handle customer contact
in an unfamiliar language. Or a manager travels to a face-toface
meeting only to sit across a conference table from clients
wanting to speak in their own native language. Even within
your organization, teams across global geographies must
collaborate to achieve collective goals, but language barriers
often stand in their way.
Meanwhile, HR leaders are tasked with recruiting and
retaining top talent and L&D managers must align programs
with business goals. Each of these scenarios and areas of
responsibility have something in common: A clear need for
company-sponsored training to develop employees’ language
proficiency so they can engage successfully with colleagues
and customers anywhere.
Thousands of learners were surveyed about the impact of
language training with Rosetta Stone® business solutions.1
When augmenting the benefits package
for your organization, it’s natural to focus
on traditional perks that employees have come to
expect: PTO, health insurance, and maybe a tuition
assistance credit here or there. But if you’re looking
for creative and effective ways to stimulate
employee engagement while also driving business
results, you’ll want to consider the powerful impact
of offering language-learning opportunities.
Why language learning? It offers immediate and
long-term benefits to both employees and employers.
Research shows that organizations that offer access
to language learning see an increase in employee
engagement factors like loyalty, morale, and
productivity, which in turn boosts business performance
factors such as customer satisfaction
and internal communications.
Where’s the connection? And how can you reproduce
these benefits within your organization? This
playbook offers a deeper look at why language
learning has such a positive influence on employee

Some companies opt to deploy UC solutions on-premises, but the cloudbased model is gaining popularity. Cloud-based UC solutions are ideal for businesses that have limited IT staff, a distributed workforce and/or a desire for pay-as-you-go flexibility.
By enabling diverse communication media to be carried over a common IP network, UC solutions make it possible to manage a full suite of capabilities from a single point—and use them with common devices.
But what’s the best way to maximize UC capabilities for your specific workplace? Spiceworks surveyed IT decision makers to get their insights on identifying and deploying collaboration and communication solutions across their organizations. This white paper explores the survey results, including key concerns, pain points, and roadmaps around driving UC strategies.
Employers want to recruit and hire the best talent in their industry and avoid making costly hiring mistakes. But what if your organization’s internal processes aren’t set up to support efficient and effective hiring?

The company's CEO had a vision of a 'Team of Teams', based on social business collaboration. His target was to improve productivity by 30%, driven by an ability to quickly identify people with the right skills, build small teams and collaboratively solve problems, and 'fail fast' instead of wasting time on unproductive activities. Research showed this was possible: Companies reported better collaboration and a greater focus on results when using social business models. Even McKinsey Global Institute stated that social collaboration methods could improve productivity by 20-25 percent. But the company had spent 3 years trying to realize the CEO's vision. As a last throw of the dice, Infosys was asked to provide a proof of concept to show they could deliver these benefits where others had failed.
