    Description

    When you write effectively in business, you get your message across more quickly. You’re able to spend more time focusing on the main purpose of your role — and less time rewriting documents or clarifying what you’ve written for your readers.

    Writing effectively for business can dramatically change lines of communication within an organisation. It can also greatly improve your organisation’s bottom line.

    Just how much time and money do your team spend writing and rewriting documents? Use our calculators to find out.
