Companies should invest in qualification and improvement processes

In the view of Daniel Nakamura, co-founder of Lingopass, a Brazilian edtech focused on language teaching for companies, it is important to develop constant training and qualification processes for airline staff, such as language teaching:

“A company in the aviation sector, by definition, is already an internationalized company, even if you don’t see it that way. In the simplest model, it has foreign suppliers. In the more complex model, it imports and exports manpower, processes and products,” he says.

In both cases, he continues, mastering a foreign language, more specifically English, is essential for increasing productivity. This eliminates the “cordless phone” effect, interpreters, tools such as Google translator and long chains of emails, among others.

“In an airline company, mastering English results in an exchange of empty relationships for complete relationships, where interlocutors not only talk about work, but also create true connections that effectively contribute to efficiency in the work environment, in addition to to make it more enjoyable,” says Nakamura.
