Instructional Solutions Custom Onsite Business Writing Courses bring our industry-recognized expertise into your office to engage and improve your employees writing skills. These in person seminars are highly vetted, results-oriented, and ensure all attendees write better at work.
Better writing makes better business. Managers understand the value of clear and effective business communication from their staff, both internally and externally. Yet, editing and advising is not an efficient way to increase the overall writing skill of employees.
Effective business writing will enhance productivity, boost sales, and increase profitability. Poor communication causes costly errors, misunderstandings, and missed opportunities, all of which can be easily avoided.
Custom on-site writing courses are a short-term investment that produced long-term results.
We pride ourselves on our excellent teaching staff. Our staff brings the topic of business writing alive in a way that is both educational and enjoyable. Our instructors have strong educational and communication credentials, with a minimum standard of college-level experience teaching writing. This pedagogical experience adds a rich experience to your onsite course.
Our courses are delivered through unique, scenario-based activities. Content has been developed to engage adults in a way that is valuable, engaging, and fun. Here are testimonials from some clients:
"The training helps me to think more consciously about my readers and the action I expect from them. The instructions and feedback I got will help me write texts that are clearer and engaging for the reader."
-Public Affairs Executive, DuPont
"I just wanted to thank you again for helping me gain clarity in my business writing, helping me put together my first executive summary, and for all the tips on managing all the information I gather on a daily basis. These courses are invaluable. Any other courses you offer here at USAA I’d attend and I’d recommend those I’ve taken to anyone wanting to improve on their business communication. So, thank you!"
- Business Analyst, USAA
"OK, I admit it. I did not want to attend today’s training because I am so busy. However, I am so glad I did. This was a fantastic class, and the discussion of user requirement documents and project status reports was illuminating. I can see already how much time I will save using these techniques. The instructor was excellent and really kept things on target and interesting."
- Business Analyst, Liberty Mutual Insurance Group
