  • My English before Intel was almost nothing.

  • [music]

  • Intel is an American-based company with operations in multiple countries.

  • Official communication is English both written and verbally.

  • We establish a relationship with our peers or with our reports.

  • At Intel, we try to be a team

  • and not just people working a lot.

  • The only way to connect the processes

  • connect people and actually connect the knowledge is through English.

  • When I hire people, sometimes they don't have the level of skills that we need right away

  • It is very sad to see young professionals coming out of a school

  • and coming to interviews performing technically and not being able to

  • express themselves in English.

  • English proficiency is critical.

  • If it is not there, the person is not going to have the confidence and they will have to come back

  • if they are asked to come back

  • One example of investment in bright people is Zachariah.

  • When I was at high school, I had the opportunity to participate in a national science fair

  • I won the first prize and since that point Intel saw something different in me.

  • We followed up with him in the University. He got an Intel scholarship to study

  • English and then we were able to hire him in our quality and reliability department.

  • I'm responsible for the quality of the materials that we use with our company.

  • So every day I know there is going to be a note from some of my counterparts in Asia.

  • If we have an issue with one product we immediately set up a

  • meeting with our counterparts and we call each other by phone and share the

  • information that we have and we start to discuss in English that something is

  • going wrong. It wouldn't be possible for me to do my job if I was not able to

  • speak English.

  • At Intel, the official language is English and that's how we connect every

  • employee independently from their culture, their origin, their gender in every country in the world.

  • I cannot imagine a company with more variety of people than Intel.

  • We have the opportunity to learn from the cultures

  • and diversity brings richness, it brings perspectives

  • and boosts performance of people and business.

  • Because in Intel, the human relations and teamwork is a key piece

  • that helped us to be more successful as a company.

  • People from all around the world and I have been able to talk to all of them because of English.

  • We're one company, one voice, with a clear vision

My English before Intel was almost nothing.
