Standards for language change over time, but which changes are acceptable for your workplace?
Do you notice errors on signage, business Web posts, magazines, etc., or are they becoming so commonplace that you ignore them or are not even sure when you’re seeing or hearing them?
In our hurry-up world, carefully crafted communication seems to have gone by the wayside at times. We’re bombarded by 24-7 information from anyone who has the technology. How does that influence our standards for business communication?
Come to our February meeting to find out:
- how to ensure that your staff members use appropriate wording for a business setting
- how to simplify conventional rules for standard business English
- when to make style changes in your workplace—how quickly or often
- how to avoid mistakes in your own communication
