Business Communications

The Wall Street Journal surveyed supervisors from the 500 largest workplaces in the United States. Solid writing ability was the second most desired skill for employees in these companies, falling just behind leadership skills at the number one ranking. Your organization’s visibility and credibility are impacted by your employees’ ability to communicate well.
