Overview

Although written communication skills are critical across all professions, they’re especially important for HR professionals. As a new HR specialist, you may eventually find yourself in an external-facing role, representing your organization as you engage with various audiences and stakeholders. Clear, concise, and targeted writing products are essential in meeting various objectives.

From recruitment messages, to position descriptions, to job announcements, and more, HR specialists can expect to engage in a variety of writing activities as part of their regular duties. Having solid foundational writing skills and continually improving them can increase your personal performance, enhance your agency’s reputation, and save time for you and your team.

How You Will Benefit

Through instructor-led training and class activities, you’ll gain a solid foundation in effective written communication. Grounded in critical thinking principles, this two-and-a-half-day course will help you:

  • Craft targeted messages that engage your intended audience and achieve your desired goals.
  • Understand why knowing your objective and audience can help you discern what makes writing effective and ineffective.
  • Improve written products you can use on the job by reviewing and critique fellow participants’ work.
