We make a point of hiring allied health people who speak a language other than English, whether it’s a native tongue, or a language learned in school or university.

We hear a lot about how being bilingual or multilingual is a great thing – for the speaker. It’s said that being bilingual enriches these people’s lives, giving them more social and economic opportunities. It even helps expand children’s brains and minds.

We also hear that bilingualism allows these language speakers to connect with others, learn other perspectives and cultures, break down barriers, and stay connected with family and heritage. Speaking more than one language can also help people succeed in their professional career.

But what about the impact on our customers – often people from quite different cultural backgrounds than Australia?

We know firsthand that being bilingual (and multicultural) better equips people not just with language skills but also important social skills we need to work with others from diverse cultures and backgrounds.

These useful skills include the ability to be more perceptive of others, to be more empathetic and understanding, and to communicate more effectively. These are all attributes we look for in our people.
