Abstract [en]

The chapter focuses on multilingualism at work and includes a survey of studies which explore discourse-related problems facing managers and employees in the globalized economy. Firstly, a model is presented which aims to grasp the complex and dynamic interplay between workplace discourse and its various contextual frames. Secondly, studies of organizational language policy are discussed. Thirdly,  multilingual workplaces are explored,  first with a focus on English lingua franca workplaces and then on workplaces with workforce diversity. The last section sketches some problem areas for future applied research.
