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

Hotels and the travelers who frequent them bear little resemblance to their counterparts from just a few years ago. The explosion of new technologies has allowed hotels to change the way they operate and has made the average traveler more techsavvy and connected than ever.
Mobile devices are driving this innovation. Not only have mobile devices changed how people interact with each other, they also have changed how people expect businesses to engage with them. According to SmartBrief, 40 percent of hotel guests carry three or more mobile devices. And with global mobile data traffic growing 30 percent every year according to Cisco, there will be an estimated 4.9 billion mobile users by 2018. When these mobile users travel, will they choose your hotel? Only if you have the mobile amenities they demand.
In this white paper, we will review three mobile trends that every hotelier should address, and we’ll offer recommendations on how to best address them.
