Communications for HR eWorkshop Series

June 5, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm



Metaslider - Communications for HR (e-Workshops)

COURSE DESCRIPTION: As an HR professional, a great deal of our responsibility depends on our ability to communicate. We communicate through writing; we send email, memo, and even create our company code-of-conduct. In the process, we also speak to different individuals. If you are in a multinational company, you may also need to speak with executives from other parts of the globe. Up to 70% of our communications and documents will likely be in English. The way we use English, spoken or written, affects the way others perceive us. Perception is importance as this is a rudiment for good credibility. For this reason, it is important that we know how to communicate professionally in all levels.

In the time of the COVID-19 crisis, the need becomes greater. Now more than ever, we need to communicate with more clarity. People feel uncertainty and HR must be one of the voices that guide them through the adversities and changes the company is facing.

In our four-session eWorkshop, Communications for HR, we will talk about some areas of communication often overlooked such as how we communicate in English, how we write our email and business correspondents, and how we can use non-verbal communication to understand and influence others.

COURSE OBJECTIVES: At the end of the module, the participants should:

Discuss the Importance of Effective Communications in the HR line of work.
Enumerate Tips to help elevate your English Communication Skills.
Identify phrases that make communications more diplomatic and refined.
Discuss important things to look out for in our actions as well as others.
Practice how to write memos and business letters professionally.
