Stocks in this article: RST

Rosetta Stone Inc. (NYSE: RST), one of the world’s best-known language-learning brands, has announced partnerships with two global food and beverage companies to teach thousands of employees to speak new languages.

Yum! Brands, Inc. and Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates are providing their employees with interactive language solutions from Rosetta Stone as they seek to develop associates who can communicate better with customers and business partners around the world. As part of the new corporate programs, thousands of employees in hundreds of locations will be given an opportunity to learn a new language using the powerful online solution from Rosetta Stone.

Rosetta Stone sees a trend in its growing institutional business, which now delivers online language training solutions to thousands of schools, corporations, and government agencies in the US, Europe, Latin America, and Asia.

“Corporations that hope to be competitive in today’s global economy are starting to recognize that it’s crucial to have a multilingual workforce,” says Judy Verses, President, Global Institutions for Rosetta Stone. “We’re delighted that two of the world’s leading food and beverage brands are investing in their employees by incorporating Rosetta Stone into their training and benefits programs. I believe they’ll see a significant pay-off.”

The interactive online language-learning solutions Rosetta Stone delivers can be tailored to the specific structure and needs of any organization. The products are designed with a high degree of flexibility and scalability so that organizations can deliver language training for a few people in one department or thousands of employees across many global divisions.

“Rosetta Stone is extremely adaptable and accessible, and that’s helpful for a company like ours,” says Rob Lauber, Vice President of Yum! University, the Global Learning and Development Center for Yum! Brands. “As a global company, our partnership with Rosetta Stone provides our employees access to language learning that is intuitive and easy to use. With Rosetta Stone we’re able to support the global mindset of our employees and encourage personal development at every level of our organization.”
