Communications for HR



As an HR practitioner, 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 communication process 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 our four-hour program, 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 effectively use our verbal communication to influence other employees.

Effective Communications, Positive Phrasing, and Rapport Building

In the current time, it matters not only what you say. Saying it the right way also matters. Influential individuals are those that not only convey information, but also those that are able to inspire and motivate. When presenting your business or product, it is usually very important that you know how to say things positively. Being in sales, and even in non-sales careers require that you know how to build rapport. It is very easy to get into a business meeting and lose the sale out of lack of rapport.

In this module, we explore how your communication style and positive phrasing can help you build rapport whether it is to clients, your officemates, your boss, new friends, or others. It will allow you to discover new approaches in starting good business relationships, and sometimes even friendly ones,  with people.
