With the advent of technology today, world is like a global village but still one of the biggest problems in front of most of the multinational organizations is to create co-operation among their workforce, as the people belongs to different states, countries and society (Burnett 30/07/2013). The common problem today faced by many organizations, is related to the communication barrier. This communication problem occurs due to variety of employees working together. Inspiriting employees to work for the common goal that came from different origins, is not an easy task.
According to a survey conducted by Automatic Data Processing Inc. (ADP) on global human capital management in the year 2012 about five challenges faced by companies in managing global workforce, 56% of employees do not get involved and co-operate each other at work. If company wanted to change this behaviour of their employees it needed awareness and education about peculiarities of different cultures and ethics. It is one of the major problems every company is facing while managing diversified workforce.

Diversity of workforce creates various ethical problems for the stakeholders of the multinational companies. Communication is one of the major problems which restrict the cooperation among employees. Companies functioning in dissimilar languages create barrier in cooperating among indigenous staffs due to indigenous workers speak diverse languages. Difference in culture and languages rises in the complexity, vagueness and misperception. Ethnic variety makes problems to companies during its goal to achieve solitary settlement (Kundu, 2001).
