A global challenge

Netafim faces a significant challenge when it comes to effective communication. Their diverse workforce spans 40 countries and speaks multiple languages. Although English is the primary language within the company, limited English proficiency across various departments has created communication barriers that hinder productivity

Along with the challenge of communication breakdowns, the need for strong English skills in management and leadership roles has become a barrier for non-native English-speaking employees, restricting their career progression and limiting upward mobility within the company.

“English proficiency is a global need and one of our top priorities when it comes to learning."

In response to these challenges, Netafim made it a priority to invest in business English training for its employees. This case study delves into Netafim's experience with Talaera's training programs and evaluates how it has improved the company's global workforce potential, productivity, and overall success.
