Public Benefit Corporation EnGen sheds light on the connection between, career outcomes and English Language skills of New Americans 
NEW YORK, April 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — EnGen, a social enterprise that helps immigrant and refugee workers develop and apply critical language skills at work, today published insights from its community of learners. In their April 2022 Impact Report, new survey results suggest that immigrants, refugees, and speakers of other languages can access language skills to unlock career opportunities and boost self-confidence. 
“People can understand me better. I feel more confident to speak in public and give instructions in English at work,” said one survey respondent who used EnGen’s platform. 
The survey, conducted by EnGen, received responses from learners in 46 states and at companies including Walmart, Target, Chipotle, and Chobani. Survey results from the participants suggest that alumni are advancing toward their goals, both inside and outside of work.
“96% of adult English learners lack access to the English instruction that would help them advance at their places of employment and navigate life in the U.S.,” said Dr. Katie Brown, founder and Chief Education Officer at EnGen. “These survey results illustrate what we have always known–that by removing English as a barrier, we can provide immigrants, refugees, and speakers of other languages a path toward achieving their social and career goals–and achieving economic mobility,”
Key findings from the April 2022 Impact Report include:
EnGen’s AI-driven English learning platform empowers workers and learners at Fortune 500 companies like Amazon, Walmart, and Chipotle; institutions like the University of Maryland and the Community College of Denver; restaurants like Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe, and healthcare organizations like MaineHealth to achieve their academic and career goals. EnGen’s patented pedagogy has served over four million people since 2012. The mobile-first platform—currently used by more than 16,213 learners with over 35 native languages in all 50 states—provides learners with the English and workforce readiness skills they need to boost their workplace productivity and economic prospects.
EnGen is a Certified B Corporation that helps immigrants and refugees achieve self-sufficiency, economic mobility, civic participation, and a better quality of life through virtual English language education. Prior to launching in 2020, the award-winning language learning platform was built and refined for ten years and informed by data of over four million learners, and it features ten patents and has received a digital promises certification. Available on desktop, tablet and mobile, EnGen offers customized learning pathways that adapt to language level, real-world interests, and career goals.
