Many workplace communications, from emails to reports, never get read. One reason for this could be information overload or lack of time on the part of the reader. Another reason is that poorly written communications are simply too much hard work to read.
Often called ‘dot points’, bulleted lists can be used effectively in business writing to break up large slabs of text or to make information stand out. A well-structured list will make your report, email or other communication easier to read. But there are a few traps that could derail your list and your reader. Once aware of these traps, you can quickly get your list back on track.
