Do you strive for a more inclusive work culture?
Do you believe everyone should have equal access to information,
and equal opportunity to contribute?
If you think the voices of everyone you work with - and for - should be heard, then you're in the right place.
For communication in an international organisation to be successful, the diverse backgrounds of the international workforce matter. This diversity has a lot of potential, for example making a team more creative. Using English usually works well to avoid language barriers – at the same time, it can create a dividing line depending on employees' language backgrounds. As a result, some members of the workforce may have to work harder or feel excluded, with effects on productivity, collaboration, knowledge sharing, and employee satisfaction.
If you want communication and communicative behaviour in your organisation to be inclusive, empowering and efficient for everyone, we'll help you get there.
If you are part of an international organisation that uses English as a working language, we can help you
We work with HR departments, communications teams, and directly with professionals in international organisations for whom clear messaging, a high degree of comprehension and inclusive communication are important. Our work involves everyone regardless of language background, but much of what we advise centres on the communicative behaviour of native English speakers. Find out why here.
BEIO Consulting worked with us to test styles of language that were preferred by beneficiaries, running interactive workshop sessions to find this out and paying close attention to what people said. […] The impact has been that we are now able to re-write our policies in ways that help be understood by all, keeping us true to our principles of inclusion. Thank you BEIO!
