Most of us spend years learning by trial and error how to operate effectively
in an office environment. It takes time to master those key communication skills,
dealing with office politics, core financial awareness, knowing how to put your
case across and effective problem solving - the kind of skills and knowledge
acquired gradually and sometimes painfully, through experience, books and the
odd training course. Imagine a simply written manual that took all those skills
and subjects, and set out the very core essentials that everybody needs to know.
The individual suddenly has a huge competitive advantage from an early stage
of their working life, while the company has a more productive and effective
workforce from day one. Everything You Need To Know At Work gives you the experience
and knowledge that would normally take many months to accumulate, and tells
you what to do when you don't know what to do. For Human Resources- It will
help you make your staff more efficient and effective at little expense. It's
the perfect substitute for early experience and the ideal platform for ongoing
development. For the individual- Tells you simply and clearly everything you
need to know to make you competent and confident in a business environment.
Whether it's used by human resources or by the individual, this manual aims
to deliver the equivalent of a couple of years' work experience, training courses
and personal skills reading - all in one, easily absorbed volume.
