Abstract: Communication is a process where two people or more than two people communicate with each other through speaking, writing etc. While verbal and written communication skills are important, research has shown that nonverbal behaviors make up a large percentage of our daily interpersonal communication. On the other hand, barriers in the language happen on people of different ethnic backgrounds, ages and experience. These barriers slow down communication and create misunderstandings that make communication ineffective, especially in the workplace. . It was from this perspective that the researcher intended to have this study to gain the insights and the real score on the failure and success of the multi-national companies in Bahrain in terms of verbal and non-verbal communication skills. The study is a qualitative research based from the case studies of the different multi-national companies which were selected to represent each sector in the Kingdom of Bahrain. This would certainly be benefiting the clients and the company, the educational institutions and the society as well. The findings and conclusions of this study were focused on the communication skills in the workplace which were varied and altering. The number of people and the differences in culture and race affected much the supposed common behavior and communication in the workplace. It is then recommended that race and cultural differences should be given considerations; communication skills should be strengthened; trainings and seminars should be conducted; and strict and proper supervision in the workplace should be improved and regulated.
