English Testing for you Company Makes Business Sense

English is the global language for international business as it is in most countries the default form of communication. No matter where an organization is located, an English proficiency test is a powerful tool that can help improve decision making, streamline communications, and provide data to justify hiring practices.


It can be hard to accurately judge the English language proficiency of a potential employee during the interview process. A placement test can be used to help differentiate between employees with the similar resumes and is an effective tool to screen candidates before the hiring process begins as it sets a baseline level of competency needed for the job.


English language tests can help companies promote from within. When deciding to promote an employee to a new position, it helps to have a quantifiable reason to make a decision. Administering an English language test will provide a score and benchmark executives can use to promote someone who has particularly strong English language skills, especially in non-English speaking companies.

Using English skills of staff as a selling point

There is no doubt that having English-speaking employees is beneficial to a business as it is attractive to new clients, business partners, and potential employees. If your entire staff is fluent in English, you can point this out to customers as a way to distinguish your brand from competitors.

Evaluating ROI in English training

Companies sometimes choose to provide English language instruction to their employees. To see if the provided courses are effective, they can administer an English language test before new employees start and after their instruction is complete. These results can help an employee understand their strengths and weaknesses, and also help an organization measure the ROI of its English instruction.

The Cambridge English Placement Test is developed by Cambridge English, part of the University of Cambridge. It is a fast and reliable way to find out your employees’ English level.
