Why choose Techwriting?

High quality original content: we use your words, no copying and pasting from other sources.

We focus on the purpose of the communication and the result that you’re after.

We engage your readers by writing to meet their needs.

Fast turnaround. We don’t procrastinate. We ask the questions to gather the information from you or your competent team, then we get on with the writing. You’ll have a draft to review surprisingly quickly. If we don’t have the capacity at the time, we’ll be honest with you before we start.

We organise information in a structured, logical way, so that it flows naturally to a conclusion.

Let us create for you

Policies and Procedures

If your policies and procedures have become convoluted or out of date and no longer suit how you do business, we flush away the mud, polish the words and provide clarity . We write in plain English to meet the needs of the people within the business rather than the language of auditors. We can even write policies and procedures from scratch, creating documents that are useful and relevant.

 

Training Needs

Are you unsure what employees need to know to be able to do their job well? A Training Needs Analysis provides a summary of knowledge and skills needed to perform a particular role. It allows you to plan strategically and thoroughly for training and to meet regulatory requirements. Learn more

 

Procedures and Work Instructions

Don’t have time or resources to write procedures or work instructions in-house? We can come and blitz it! By watching tasks being performed and speaking to your best performers, our skilled procedure-writers will have your procedures written in minimal time.

 

Learning Guides and Assessment Materials

How do you know new employees have learned what they need to know? Techwriting creates customised assessment packs that provide solid evidence of learning – they’re not just a tick-and-flick. The added bonus is that the assessment materials clearly define what people need to learn, so they can be used as a learning guide as well, for both trainer and learner. Learn more

 

Induction Manuals

A good induction manual that gives new employees all the information they need to get off to a good start will do wonders for your workplace culture. We can create induction manuals that make your employees feel welcomed, understand what is expected of them, help them settle in and become productive quickly.

 

Change Communications

People are suspicious of change when they don’t know what to expect. Training provided is often inadequate because processes are new for everyone. We can help you create a change strategy, communications and training materials to make change painless and positive.

 

Website Content

If you want to improve or create a website but struggle to express what you do, we can help clarify your ideas and put the words together. We can communicate your passion and tell your potential customers how good you are.
