Workplace communications is a task made more difficult by the fact that there are no gender-specific pronouns and so needs to be addressed in a manner that is gender neutral, whether you are writing from an office environment or while chatting with friends on the phone. What if your employees need to know how to address their colleagues in a professional way? Couldn’t you write down the right thing to say or do with the help of worksheets? It would be a great way to keep things in order and clear up any confusion.
When the word work is used in this context, one could be working on a long project or may have just finished work and are in the process of arranging some simple documents to take home with them. In both instances, the words to be, are also used, even though they might not be used in all contexts. This does not make them invalid as there are no absolute rules, even in the workplace. The rules are set by you and the situation in which you find yourself in. In either case, worksheets are a great resource for staying organized.
While they are not intended to be a replacement for a clear idea, they can be a great idea when dealing with relationships between colleagues in a group setting. In a smaller group such as a team or company, it is difficult to remember every time a personal pronoun is needed, especially when you are not in the same room as a co-worker and are therefore unable to look at him or her. Worksheets are great tools and can be a great way to keep things in order. No one wants to deal with questions like “Excuse me, is Mr. your colleague?”
