"Managers are fighting an epidemic of grammar gaffes in the workplace.
Many of them attribute slipping skills to the informality of email,
texting and Twitter where slang and shortcuts are common. Such looseness
with language can create bad impressions with clients, ruin marketing
materials and cause communications errors, many managers say.
There's no easy fix. Some bosses and co-workers step in to correct
mistakes, while others consult business-grammar guides for help. In a
survey conducted earlier this year, about 45% of 430 employers said they
were increasing employee-training programs to improve employees'
grammar and other skills, according to the Society for Human Resource
Management and AARP."
