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