Abstract: The main purpose of this work is to investigate how Human Resources departments in a random sample of French companies take language training into account. In order to carry out this TFM, we have used the quantitative method and tried to cover in part an area of knowledge that is evolving and still little studied. Several studies highlight the fact that speaking other languages facilitates professional careers, improves cognitive skills, creativity, concentration and memory, not to mention the social and psychological benefits. Among the companies surveyed, there appears to be some satisfaction with the language training provided. However, although some of them trade or have contacts abroad, not all of them provide language courses for their staff, contrary to what was stated in the hypotheses. Most of the courses are blended learning, Microsoft Teams is the most used technological resource, English is still the most required language as foreseen in the hypotheses and the sector that most requires such training is IT. Respondents say that speaking languages helps them to communicate with their customers and potential customers, to be more open-minded, to socialise and to have psychological benefits. Therefore, thanks to language teachers and researchers, we believe it is necessary to raise awareness among companies and policy makers of the importance of lifelong language training for young people and seniors. In the framework of Training and Development, a plan for the implementation of in-company language training is proposed.
