What is your opinion on this question? In what circumstances does it make sense to use English as the corporate language? This morning I had a discussion with employees of a German based company.
They have subsidiaries in at least 15 countries and they often have to communicate in English. However, the corporate headquarters are in Germany and of course a lot of the German employees want to stick to German in their daily communications. We used this situation to practice our negotiation skills and the outcome was quite interesting.
So, what is your experience, have you ever worked in a company that uses English is the primary means of communication? If you were the HR and corporate training manager, how would you go about implementing English as the corporate language?[YSaerTTEW443543]
