Part 3: Analyzing Municipal Communications: the Clarity Audit™

"The Clarity Audit" is the third part of the three-part "Clarity Kit," which was developed to assist municipal workplaces to improve their communication by encouraging the use of clear language. A clarity audit is a tool for gathering information about how an organization communicates, from the perspective of both management and unionized employees. It gives everyone a chance to comment on the clarity and quality of the communications they encounter in the municipal workplace. Analyzing the results helps the organization plan how to move forward with a clear language initiative.
