I work in an industry that is about as global as it gets. I'm curious to see if anyone is recruiting for positions in the US that don't require any proficiency of the English language. If so, how do you post, screen, onboard, and manage employees who do not speak, read, and understand English at all? We have determined a few potential positions where English may not be required, but are trying to figure out how other companies handle this.
Do you post in multiple languages, hire recruiters for those languages, re-write new hire paperwork and policies, and manage/discipline in other languages? We are finding that it is one thing to have the English requirement and make work-arounds for those who only speak a little English, but it would be a real process change if we establish positions where it isn't part of the basic requirements.
