Abstract [en]

This article explores some discourse-related problems facing managers and employees in the globalized economy. A model is first introduced which focuses on the interplay between workplace discourse and its contextual frames. Secondly, issues related to transnational companies's language policy are discussed. Thirdly, some studies of multilingual workplaces in the Scandinavian countries are presented, both English lingua franca workplaces and workplaces with workforce diversity. Lastly, some topics for future applied research on multilingualism at work are sketched.
