Intel’s secret to seamless teamwork and collaboration: English.
Today, being a global company means having team members spread all over the world—resulting in the need for a single corporate language. For Intel, a world leader in computing innovation, adopting English as its official language of communication has helped connect its diverse employee population and further the company’s success.
An employer of 100,000 people in 63 countries, Intel values its diversity as it adds unique perspectives and richness to its corporate culture. However, a workforce with varied native languages can pose unique challenges. Intel has learned firsthand that English has the power to establish a unified team—connecting the company’s processes, knowledge and people.
As Intel looks to the future, it views English as an important asset. That’s why, to continue to build strong international teams, Intel invests in English training for current and prospective employees. Intel believes this investment can open up a world of opportunity for both the employee and the company.
For Intel, English is essential to its corporate culture and bottom line:
- A shared language unifies a diverse employee population—helping to connect processes, knowledge and people.
- English training helps create strong international teams.
- A single corporate language accelerates communication and productivity so employees can share work seamlessly without confusion or delay.
