The rapid expansion of technology has made it more and more important to be able to communicate effectively. This applies to all aspects of the work environment including communication with employers, employees, government regulators, clients and the general public. It is important that you be able to communicate concerning your work both orally and in written form.
This is not an exhaustive list:
- Ideally, you should be given an opportunity to prepare written reports (including record keeping), including participation in larger reporting tasks being undertaken by the organization or unit in which you work.
- This form of communication may include reports to superiors; reports to senior management; or exposure to, or participation in, reports to clients or regulatory authorities.
- If the opportunity arises, you should be exposed to, or allowed to participate in, presentations on behalf of the organization to the public.
Communication with Fellow Employees:
- Ideally, you should be given an opportunity to communicate information on behalf of the organization to other employees. You should also receive feedback on your performance and suggestions to improve.
