Making English as corporate language is one of the challenges growing multinational companies are facing today.
Many corporations have chosen English as their official language as a solution to the challenges of a multilingual corporate landscape. This policy choice can appear in several forms.
Corporations may choose whether it applies for
- internal or external communication,
- verbal or written communication,
- or whether it applies to all employees in all departments in all situations.
One challenge of English as a corporate language in multinational companies is when the language proficiency of employees does not match the corporate language policy.
Key HR practices to Improve Language Policies in MNCs
