Mason Cooley, An American Aphorist, said, “Documents create a paper reality we call proof.” 


Businesses run on these paper realities or proofs we create for recording, assessing, and communicating information, events, or processes in the form of reports. A single mistake in these documents may cost businesses millions or even billions of dollars. The world had witnessed (and even taken advantage of) these costly mistakes in documents, like in 2006, at the Tokyo Stock Exchange when Mizuho Securities Co., sold 610,00 shares for 1 Yen instead of offering 1 share at 610,000 apiece. The result was a $340 million hit to the business.


Error-ridden unprofessional reports not just cost a fortune but also damage the reputation and lower business credibility in the market.


What Unprofessional Reports Cost A Business?

  • Impact the audience’s perceptions towards the brand (it is labeled as uneducated and unprofessional).
  • Lowers the information’s credibility.
  • Unprofessional reports lead to miscommunication or conflict between involved parties.
  • Show the reporter’s poor (written) communication skills and lack of attention to detail.
  • Create doubts about the integrity of offerings and abilities of the organization.
  • Poor or wrong decision-making based on data in the report
