style of writing?
The Astellas Groupís business philosophy has three elements ó raison d'Ítre, mission and beliefs. This business philosophy expresses the companyís of aiming to contribute to the health of people around the world
I am a bit confuse with the line; the company's of aiming - what style is this?
Can not we write it in a plain English.... the company's aim to contribute...
Re: style of writing?
Not a teacher only a native.
I think that the Astellas Group is guilty of using 'business speak', I think this from looking at your other posts also. They are purposely using terms/phrases that sound impressive, however they are inappropriate and often lead to confusion. This is an increasing critisim in Britain, especially of councils and in job adverts.
I agree with you, plain English should be used.
ps. I don't think that the highlighted text is grammatically correct either.
