BRISBANE, California, May 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ - Pearson English Business Solutions (PEBS) today announced new products and services designed to equip HR professionals to mine global talent in an era in which human capital drives innovation and competitive advantage.
Success in today's connected economy depends on access to global talent as well as global consumers. Employees with an international outlook bring cultural diversity and local insight to the heart of global businesses. But accessing and developing global talent requires business English proficiency to be treated like any other skill.
PEBS announced two new product sets for HR leaders to harness global talent:
ONE Standard covers the communication spectrum, from effective writing to business exchanges and persuasive discussions.
ONE Professional augments One Standard with one-to-one guidance from an advisor, business skills practice and writing feedback.
PEBS's new consulting and benchmarking services put HR leaders in control, aligning business objectives, global proficiency standards and individual advancement.
Industry Profile Benchmark defines candidate and employee requirements against recommended proficiency benchmarks for industry and role profiles.
Custom Profile Benchmark defines a company's talent and employee proficiency benchmarks against the organization's standards for roles, departments or disciplines.
