Workplace Communications is the first brief, less theory-intensive text that focuses on the fundamentals of workplace communication specifically intended for applied writing courses in community colleges and similar settings.

Written in a conversational style and featuring a clean, uncluttered page layout, Workplace Communications is designed to be accessible. The high quantity of examples, illustrations, and exercises emphasize practical applications to ensure the text is user-friendly. Workplace Communications is an ideal text to bridge business communication and technical communication courses.


This textbook was created for courses in technical and/or business writing and is intended for students at vocational schools or those with lower-level reading skills. In addition to correspondence, short and long reports (rather than a research paper), and the job application process, chapters cover oral presentations, visual aids, page layout, and how to write clear summaries, instructions, and process/procedure descriptions.
