Everyday Diversity™ Speak English

Foreign Language in the Workplace

Speaking in a foreign language can be tiring and more challenging. Being able to speak in a native language often makes things easier and quicker - especially when describing work or tasks. It can be easy to assume that when we hear people speaking a foreign language that they are speaking about us. Sometimes this also means that we feel left out of the conversation.

TrainingBriefs® Speak English!

Speaking in a foreign language can be tiring and more challenging. Though English is the widely accepted language, there are certain instances when employees may not speak English and may choose to use their native tongue. When others do not know the language being spoken, it may cause people to feel like they are on the outside - which is in direct opposition to creating an inclusive workplace.
