Part of being an effective global communicator is being able to evaluate existing messages to determine if they need to be adapted for global audiences, and applying global communication best practices to develop new messages. In this activity, you will evaluate an existing message to determine its suitability for a new target audience and create a message of your own.
Imagine that you are working in the communication department of a small software company that has recently added a few contractors to their development team. The contractors are based out of Bengaluru, India. They are fully remote, and while they speak English, it is not their first language. Your task is to evaluate a drafted memo regarding remote work expectations to determine if it needs to be revised for the new international team members. Youll then need to create a company-wide email welcoming the contractors to the team.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
Message Evaluation: Evaluate the provided Remote Working Expectations Memo to determine the clarity, effectiveness, and appropriateness of the memo, then explain what is in alignment with global communication best practices and suggest revisions to strengthen the message for multinational audiences.
Message Creation: Create an email message for an internal audience welcoming the new contractors to the team that uses best practices for communicating with multinational audiences. Format this message as you would an email (i.e., greeting, message, closing, signature).
Best Practices: Describe how your suggested revisions to the memo and created email message utilize best practices for communicating with multinational audiences, using course and/or external resources to support your response.
