Many work computers will have the Control Panel or parts of it disabled from view (and use) as a security precaution.
In that case you have to ask your IT people to make the alterations for you, which should have been done as a matter of course anyway during setting the system(s) up.
Any work computers that have been set up by a dedicated IT department and have US language settings anywhere on the system point to IT bods who either don't know what they are doing or who don't care to make sure they do it right.
Your computer at work may be a terminal, with a 'server' being the main computer (I think!). In that case it wouldn't have a Control Panel of its own. All the other PCs would have the same problem and would need someone to log on to the server.
