Procter & Gamble Expands Agreement With GlobalEnglish Corporation for Online English Training

BRISBANE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 9, 2005 -- GlobalEnglish Corporation, the leading online English learning and support service provider for business communication, today announced that Procter & Gamble has signed a new multiyear agreement. Citing a need for English communication skills across the entire global enterprise, Procter & Gamble has significantly expanded the GlobalEnglish® program for its international employees. According to the company, the magnitude of the need required a high-quality solution that would scale easily for global deployment.

"Procter & Gamble is one of the most successful companies in the world because they understand the importance of aligning their workforce to their business objectives," said Ron Hoge, GlobalEnglish President and CEO. "As a global organization that is increasingly knowledge-centric, Procter & Gamble has recognized the importance of effective communication to consistently delivering its high-quality brands worldwide."

A GlobalEnglish client since 2001, Procter & Gamble has renewed its contract and will now make available the online English language training service in more than 50 countries to employees at every level of the organization. The service is offered at no charge to the employees because executives at Procter & Gamble believe that English communication is a critical skill in a very diverse and geographically dispersed global organization.

"In a global organization like Procter & Gamble, English is often the choice for doing business internationally. As a result, English language skills are important for many of our employees across the globe," said Anand Prasad, Director of Global Training & Development for Procter & Gamble. "We originally chose the GlobalEnglish service because it provided a more cost-effective, scalable alternative to classroom training. We have decided to continue and expand the program because of the service's high quality, excellent user experience, and the strong global support we get from the GlobalEnglish team."
