Thorough Proofreading Finesses Documents, Raises the Organization’s Reputation

Proofreading qualifies for being both a process and an art. It finesses and trims important documents and gives them shape and proper form. It is essential for creating a good impact. It is necessary to cut out the errors that could cause embarrassment to the presenter. Sound proofreading, when combined with strong vocabulary; also helps to insert the most appropriate word in the right place in a document.

Proofreading is a must for almost all kinds of documents that are used in a work environment, whether they are outgoing correspondences, paperwork, project proposals, or just day-to-day emails. It entails giving attention to the smallest details in all aspects of communication, be it syntax or punctuation.

A badly proofread document, when it goes out from the organization; dents its reputation. When important documents such as mission and vision statement, or proposals, or business plans or even websites have errors; it reflects badly on the organization.

A course on how to fine-tune proofreading

Although the sad fact is that very few organizations pay complete heed to inculcating this art; proofreading can easily be wired into one’s system with some level of systematic training. This is what TrainHR, a leading provider of professional trainings for the human resources arena, will offer at a webinar it is organizing.

Mandi Stanley, a Certified Speaking Professional who works primarily with business leaders who want to boost their professional image and with people who want to be better speakers and writers, will be the speaker. Just visit TrainHR to enroll for this highly valuable learning session and to get a complete understanding of how to hone proofreading skills.

Viewing this webinar, its entirety qualifies for a recertification credit hour that may be counted toward SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP recertification from SHRM. Credit is awarded based on the actual educational time spent in the program.

Overlooking small mistakes can make an enormous difference

Mandi will dwell on the most common proofreading-associated mistakes people do, such as forgetting to attach a document to a mail and then realizing it got left out. Or, it could be making simple mistakes even when the spelling is right, such as “form” instead of “from”, using “you” instead of “your”, and most embarrassing of all, overlooking the crucial letter “l” in “public”!

Proofreading is all about being attentive to aspects such as these. At this webinar, Mandi will explain how to overcome errors of this kind. Two important and tangible proofreading tools to help participants understand and overcome these problems will be taught.

Personnel in positions in organizations, such as Chief Human Resource Officers, Senior Management Team, HR Managers, Directors, and Administrators, Employment Managers, Training Directors and Supervisors, for whom proofreading is very crucial; will gain value from this session.

The following areas will be covered at this webinar:

  • How to make sure documents leave your office error free
  • The “Newspaper Proof”: A fail-safe three-step approach to proofreading
  • The “Proofreader's Power Pack”: Which tools and resources are indispensable to a proofreader
  • How to proofread in a distracting office environment
  • How to spot errors of omission
  • Why you never should proofread directly from your computer screen
  • How to catch the bloopers before the bloopers catch you.
