Last week, we asked: Do you stick to conventional formal standards in written communications to employees?
- Sometimes, 54%
- Always, 38%
- Never, 9%
I know that at times, sticking to formal communication standards is essential. When you want an employee to read a piece of communication, though, deviation can prove useful. Going the informal route and simplifying the message can have a huge impact, especially in workplaces that have a mixture of blue and white collar workers.
