What The Experts Say
In the News: Why English Skills Matter at Work
An article in the Harvard Business Review from 2014 highlights some of the problems companies face if staff do not speak good English. Among them, employees may separate into teams of their own language when something needs to be discussed. Staff may also avoid meetings in English, or sit in silence. There will often also be friction caused by cultural misunderstandings which would have been avoided through training staff in language and culture.
