Designing a Style Manual for Your Organization

While a number of reputable generic style manuals are available for use by any organization (see Books for our preference, The Chicago Manual of Style), many businesses find it beneficial to create a customized manual with guidelines for their employees to follow.

Get It Write can work with your organization to design a style manual that is specifically tailored to meet the unique needs of your business.

What are the advantages of having a customized manual of style?

  • Employees will get the message that accuracy, consistency, form, and style in writing are taken seriously in your business. And so will the public.
  • Employees--especially new ones--have clear guidelines for bringing their documents in line with the quality of writing that distinguishes your organization. As a result, your business projects a unified, polished image.
  • A customized style manual uses examples taken directly from documents that you provide--those written by your own employees. People learn more surely and quickly when the models fit the context of their work.
  • A customized style manual will place special emphasis on the areas of grammar, mechanics, and usage that are found to be particularly troublesome for your employees when they write.
  • A customized document can change and grow to adapt to the evolving needs of your company.
