Hi

Going by the various postings and the subsequent replies done on this site, I think the standard of English is not agreeable and matchable with the standard laid down for a corporate HR person.

Be it, grammar or sentence formation or vocabulary, many experienced HR generalist members here show lack of language skill. This is very much annoying. It is a general convention that a HR guy has to be good at drafting, framing and verbal argumentative expressions.

A few enthusiastic CiteHR members have meticulously posted PPTs on language, communication and softskills improvement. This is laudable. Numerous members download them and give a 'Thank you' note. What is the aftermath of this downloading? The copied file would rest in the archives or be forwarded.

In the US/UK, high school and University students face difficulty in putting thoughts into words. When native speakers of English are unable to cope up with the situation just think of the scenario here. Due to the lack of skill, today those students outsource their dissertation /assignments.

This is evident from the fact that I get quite a high number of assignments to be written for them. Knowing two or three Indian languages will do. Only if we master English, we can go a step further globally.

I request each zonal forum to get together weekly/fortnightly/monthly, spend a whole day and inculcate ways to effectively build and develop written /oral communication.

How many would aspire to go for it? Please voice your views consciously.

Regards

Chandru

Hi Chandru,
I completely agree with your view. I have also observed that here most of the members lack in good communication skills. Hr plays an important role in aligning the goals of employee with the organisational goals for which I believe HR professionals must posses effective communication and interpersonal skills.
Hope that your initiative would encourage other members to overcome their low standard of language.

Hi Chandru,
I too agree with your views. Its very important that HR professional should be well versed with correct English.
You have pointed out very correctly that the downloads rest in the archives.
I hope that your post will bring in the positive change among the members and everyone will be careful with the English in their posts.
Thanks,
Madhura

Hi Chandru,

I completely agree with you on this ...Being an HR person Communication does play a vital role.......At times it is seen that the what we communicate verbally we have the tendency to write in the same way...but the fact is that written and verbal English has a difference which people while writing doesn't pay attention to.......Hope this could bring positive changes in people.....with their general English....

Nice initiative...Thanks

Dear Chandru,

We appraciate your views for posting this issue of concern. Be of the same opinion, what I feel that, the same will be in convention, unless the concern is utlized in the form of quality, here quality should not be in the form of flippant attitude. thus it will hamper the psot effects.

Since, We all need to communicate in English, it important in all communication procedures that the purpose is full filled for a fruitfull results. As mentioned by you, a good ppt or article are jsut forwared or are kept in collection, I differ in this note, since the pereption will unmatch from one to another. Unless we do have the standard for the effective communication and too many people are in to bring this up from their innovative methods or practices, I think we will see the light at the another end of the tunnel.

Dear Mr S Chandrashekhar,
What a coincidence! Exactly year ago i.e. on 03 Nov 2007 I had raised this issue in this forum. Year later you have raised the same issue. Thank you very much. Link to my post is as below:

The problem with this cite is that most of the members prefer to communicate in informal English. But informality should not kill the spirit of the language itself. This they do not understand.
HR is already loosing ground to finance, marketing etc. The junior HR members are creating one more reason to loose their credibility. But who listens? God bless them!
Thanks once again.
