Role of Effective Communication in an Organization

Effective communication is an inseparable part of successful organizations. Better Communication ensures productivity, job satisfaction, better relationships at workplace and utilization of resources.

Effective communication is an inseparable part of successful organizations. Better communication skills at the workplace enable the employees as well as the employer to function smoothly and effectively, which leads to higher performance and higher productivity. It is often found that people tend to neglect about the importance of having a good communication in an organization. This often leads to a critical situation and the organization faces difficulties in several aspects such as reduced productivity, wastage of resources, delays in deliveries and workplace conflicts. Communication gap could be the biggest enemy within a particular organization which hinders creativity and profit.

In this article, let's just take a look on the various impacts of having a better and clear communication in an organization or any workplace.

Enhanced Job Satisfaction

Providing job satisfaction to its employees forms the key element for a successful organization. Open communication between the managers, subordinates and other vendors creates a hassle-free environment and each of the employees feels considered upon. This helps to build loyalty and trust with in that organization.

Increased Productivity

Improper communication leads to lack of information and wastage of useful resources, whereas better communication leads to better understanding of the matter, which in turn improves the productivity and the turn around time.

Good Relationships with Co-workers

Open communication is highly important for each employee to understand different view points and suggestions. If each person shows willingness to enquire about others' opinions on a particular subject and feels free to express their own views, then its easy to maintain better relationships at workplace. Team work is very essential for any organization to be successful. Good relationship among the team members uplifts the team spirit and that leads to a positive well-rounded growth for the employees as well as the organization.

Optimum Utilization of the Resources

Miscommunication can result in delays in delivery and reduced quality outputs. Each organization should make sure that there are enough communication channels established with in the organization which helps its employees to have a friendly and healthy environment. Clarity in communication also helps the managers and the employees to plan and schedule different resources so as to ensure optimum utilization. This in turn increases the productivity.

Thus better communication goes hand in hand with the success of an organization or any workplace, for that matter. So it's ideal for the organizations to introduce professional communication skills training for all its employees. Such training leads to professional success.

 Reducing Confusion

Confusion is not only a major distraction at work, but can also reduce productivity. In addition to these problems, confusion can also lead to anger and resentment among employees and supervisors. When a boss, owner or supervisor is not clear in communicating what they expect, and then the employee gets in trouble for not doing something properly, this leads to resentment.

Too many times, a boss or owner does not know exactly what is going on and will give the wrong instructions causing the employee to do a job or project wrong. And then the boss or owner will throw the employee under the bus, all because of bad communications.
