¿Por qué es importante la buena redacción en las empresas?

By Plus Empresarial

Importancia de la redacción en las empresas

Así como la primera impresión dice mucho de una persona, los mensajes que escribes configuran la imagen de tu negocio o empresa. Es por eso que redactar bien es una habilidad necesaria para lograr una comunicación escrita eficaz.

Y, ¿por qué es importante la correcta elaboración de mensajes escritos en una empresa? A continuación te explicamos al detalle:

Brinda confianza. Cuando el empresario se comunica de forma escrita a través de mensajes mal redactados, el público externo de la empresa (clientes, proveedores, financieras, organizaciones del Estado, etc.) asocia la precariedad de ese lenguaje, con los productos y/o servicios ofrecidos. Ocurre lo contrario, cuando reciben mensajes escritos correctamente.
¿Identificaste los errores que hay en esta publicidad? Si aún no, te decimos cuáles son. Debe decir: “Si papa noel no cumple esta Navidad, El Financiero será tu mejor opción”.
Mejoran los resultados comerciales. Imagina si escribes un correo electrónico de la siguiente manera: “BUENOS DIAS señor martino cortes adjunto la cotizacion que me pediste la entrego hasta ahora porque hubieron problemas”.

Te aseguro que el cliente que recibió este mensaje, ni siquiera se tomará la molestia de abrir o leer el archivo adjunto, lo que significa: ¡Una venta perdida! Y esto ocurre frecuentemente en las empresas, ya que no se le da el debido valor a la redacción.

Da una buena imagen. Si redactas respetando las reglas ortográficas y gramaticales, el público externo e interno (empleados, directivos, socios, etc.) tendrá una percepción positiva de tu empresa.Los errores de redacción y ortografía que se cometen al escribir mal en un fan page dañan, definitivamente, la reputación de un negocio o empresa. ¿Acercarte con “H”? Es terrible, ¿verdad?
Se ahorra tiempo. De nada sirve redactar muchos documentos o mensajes, si es que estos no tienen el potencial de generar un feedback positivo, debido a una precaria redacción. En vez de generar …read more

London housing: TfL land set for affordable homes as Sadiq Khan picks expert team

By Dave Hill

The capital’s mayor has begun moves to put his low cost housing pledges into effect

London mayor Sadiq Khan has announced two forward steps on his long and testing quest to improve the supply of new homes for low and middle income households. One is the release for development of a piece of Transport for London (TfL) land in Kidbrooke. The other is the start of assembling his expert Homes for Londoners unit at City Hall.

The Kidbrooke site is the first brought forward by TfL under Khan’s manifesto pledge to supply “part-buy, part-rent” shared ownership homes on publicly-owned land for first-time buyers, giving “first dibs” to Londoners who’ve been renting for five years, especially in Outer London. It demonstrates both continuity of policy from what TfL did under Boris Johnson and significant adjustments of it.

Euro consumer confidence, Military accounting, ECB thought…

The Collapse of Rome: Washington’s $6.5 trillion Black Hole

The Defense Finance and Accounting Service, the agency that provides finance and accounting services for the Pentagon’s civilian and military members, has just revealed that it cannot provide adequate documentation for $6.5 trillion worth of “adjustments” to Army general fund transactions and data. According to a report released July 26 by the by the Inspector General of the US Department of Defense, US military budget practices are out of control. The report notes,

“The Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Financial Management & Comptroller) (OASA[FM&C]) and the Defense Finance and Accounting Service Indianapolis (DFAS Indianapolis) did not adequately support $2.8 trillion in third quarter journal voucher (JV) adjustments and $6.5 trillion in year-end JV adjustments made to AGF data during FY 2015 financial statement compilation. The unsupported JV adjustments occurred because OASA (FM&C) and DFAS Indianapolis did not prioritize correcting the system deficiencies that caused errors resulting in JV adjustments, and did not provide sufficient guidance for supporting system-generatedadjustments.” (emphasis added)

(So maybe the ECB should float the idea of replacing Mario Draghi with one of the Governors of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe to show they are serious about meeting their inflation target?)
