Description With an increasing globalization of the world labor market, a frequency of occurrence of foreign employees in the Czech working teams is growing. Diversity in the workplace can be an advantage, mainly due to creative approaches to solving situations and problems, but it also brings numerous problems (most often into communication) and thus affects the workplace environment. The way, in which a company can work with diversity, has a significant impact on whether the diversity will have positive or negative effects on the entire organization. This article focuses on the issue of nationality diversity in the chosen Czech company, specifically on a team consisted of Polish and Czech nationalities and their perception of diversity. On the basis of literature review, a questionnaire was prepared for employees (in Czech and English version) and then an interview with the head of the working team was conducted. The goal of our paper should be achieved by answering two identified research questions: What differences do employees perceive as the most striking in the multinational team? What problems can arise when working in a team of different nationalities? Our findings can help firms through better approach to management and multinational teams coordination, which can result in higher efficiency in their work and thus better financial performance of the whole company
