Why you should hire bilinguals even if you don't need their language skills
As America's population grows ever more diverse, smart companies are realizing they need bilingual employees. That's just common sense. Now comes evidence proving that dual-language speakers may be faster thinkers and more productive, even in roles that don't necessarily require them to utilize their second language. A study conducted by Northwestern University and the University of Houston and published in the journal Brain and Language found that bilinguals were more efficient at making linguistic and visual connections, possibly because of the mental acuity required to constantly balance two competing vocabularies.
