Bottlenecks in bench-to-billing - Despite high technical skills, young employees were not being deployed on projects due to poor English communication skils, resulting into empty billable hours and impact on revenue.
Lack of skill benchmarking & training need identification - With a lack of skill benchmarking for business English skills across the organization, identifying skill gaps and training needs would have been costly & time-consuming as it required a new process from scratch.
Lack of holistic evaluation in a single test - There was no tool that could measure performance indicators of business English skills on all four aspects – Listening, Speaking, Reading, Writing.
The Learning & Development leaders at Capgemini collaborated with iMocha to drive business English skill evaluation of 3,500+ fresh graduate employees.
