Hello colleagues,

Have you at any point in time faced employee complaints about co-workers not speaking English during working hours and in the workplace. I have received some complaints and I am not sure about dealing with this matter.

Request your suggestions please.

Thanks in advance,

Dear Malik,

You may conduct diversity training for such a scenario as it has often helped in addressing such concerns at the workplace. Let me know what you think and decide.

Sarah, Don't you think sensitivity training would be better than diversity training in this case??

I would suggest that you address it to all employees as a communication issue which affects not only productivity, but morale and safety.

In the extreme, make "English only during working hours" a company policy.

 An environment may be created in favor of English speaking side by side a training session my be initiated. I think it will work
