Certiport’s Communication Skills for Business Certification Exams Endorsed by HCLTech

BLOOMINGTON  (Nov.11, 2022) — Certiport, a Pearson VUE business and the leading provider of performance-based IT certification exams that accelerate academic and career opportunities for learners, today announced the endorsement of the Communication Skills for Business (CSB) Professional Communication and English for IT exams by HCLTech, a leading global technology company.

The CSB Professional Communication exam validates candidates' understanding of key communication principles and skills that are necessary to be effective in a work environment. In addition to communication skills, candidates are also required to demonstrate their skills in critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity.

The CSB English for IT certification exam measures a candidate's listening, reading, and traditional use of English words and phrases in a spoken or written IT environment. Candidates will be required to complete tasks such as constructing appropriate requests for information, examining key information from a conversation, and analyzing and prioritizing opinions and recommendations.

Learning the principles validated in the Communication Skills for Business exams helps candidates become successful workplace communicators. Poor communication is very expensive for companies, especially large companies like HCLTech. A study from SHRM estimated that businesses with 100 employees lose an average of $420,000 per year due to poor communication between employees.

"As a global leader in technology, we work with over 219,000 employees in 54 countries. Streamlined communication and English-speaking skills are crucial for our employees. Third-party validations, such as Certiport's Communication Skills for Business certifications, help companies like ours find candidates who can effectively communicate with our global network of employees," said Pad "Priyadarshi a. das", EVP, HCLTech. "We’re proud to endorse Certiport’s Communication Skills for Business certifications."

"The value of soft skills, such as communication, collaboration, and creativity, cannot be overstated. Communication becomes even more complex when employees are working at a global company, when English is used as a second language. According to a report by Cambridge Assessment, companies provide faster progression through job grades, salary increases, and more senior roles to employees with English communication skills," said Ray Murray, Vice President and General Manager, Global Channel and Business Development (IT), Pearson VUE. "We are excited that HCLTech has endorsed the CSB certifications, demonstrating the value of certified communication and English skills for IT professionals around the globe."

The CSB certification exams are aligned with Certiport's "Learn, Practice, Certify, Advance" model. Courseware, practice tests and the certification exam are available and offered by Certiport.
