One senior executive commenting on the recent business leaders survey says society’s dependence on communicating via technology is stripping away verbal and written communication skills.
She advises companies to train employees on how to communicate verbally face-to-face and learn professional and business writing skills.
More needs to be done, using the available skills levy to train employees in verbal and business writing skills.
Companies taking on interns should provide them with the necessary training in verbal and business writing so they can be better equipped for the competitive and changing workplace.
The truth behind why companies are experiencing communication breakdowns, lower productivity and losing money and goodwill is poor business writing. Effective writing skills strengthen relations internally and with companies you do business with.
