In today's globalised economy, English has been
chosen as the official language of many companies
also in non-English speaking countries, such as
Finland. Having one common language is practical,
but it can also make one wonder whether the
employees with limited English skills are in a
disadvantaged position at their workplace.

This Master's Thesis discusses the use of English in
a technology centre of a global company in Finland.
The research participants are employees of this
company, with limited English skills. The study
answers the questions: "In what kinds of situations
do the Finnish professionals encounter English at
work?" and "What kind of attitudes do the Finnish
professionals have towards the use of English in
Finnish working life?".

This study illustrates the effects of globalisation
of economy on the individual by showing what it is
like to use English in your workplace with only
limited English skills.

The results show that the research participants meet
and actively use English almost daily in various
situations, and that their attitudes towards English
are complex.
