Outsourcing can be simply put as the allocation of a company’s internal components to an external resource. Over the past couple of decades, outsourcing work from one country to another has grown tremendously. India has reaped the benefits of outsourcing mainly due to its pool of extremely educated English speakers. This trend where a developed country outsources it’s work to developing countries to reduce costs is still on-going. However, the native influence on enunciation has created restrictions with comprehension to a large degree. Hence, Accent neutralization training by MMM Training Solutions aids in increasing this facet of communication which then positively influences customer service.
