Role of Communication in the Growth of Company
“The difference between mere Management and Leadership is Communication.”
- Winston Churchill
Communication can be the biggest asset or the gravest problem in an organisation. Peter Drucker once said that, “The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn’t said.” Communication in an organisation can happen in many ways that is through emails, team meetings, brainstorming sessions, company intranet, over lunch table etc.
Effective communication is very important to establish a common understanding and to make sure that the employees are in tandem with company’s values and goals. That is why there are Group discussion rounds in the recruitment process of our executive search in Germany.
Being one of the top Executive Search Agency in Germany, let us give you the reasons, why effective communication is so important in ensuring the growth of your company :
HEALTHY WORK CULTURE
One of the most important factor in building a healthy and positive work environment is communication. In an organisation, if managers are not able to treat their employees with respect or if the employees hesitate to talk to their managers then it would be difficult to get work done in such an environment.
An effective communication would ensure good working relationships and hence a happy and healthy environment to work in. After all, this is the place you spend almost your whole day.
EFFECTIVE EMPLOYEE MANAGEMENT
An effective manager is the one who is high on relationships but hard on task. This can be ensured only with effective communication. You know when to bring variations. For example you can joke around and establish a personal relationship while on a lunch table, and to the point while in a team meeting.
CLARITY OF WORK
An effective communication would ensure that the employees are clear about their role in the organisation. This would eliminate uncertainty and hence enhance productivity.
HELPS IN TEAM BUILDING
In order to build a team, it is very important that each and every member is comfortable enough with the other members. Communication, both formal and informal, can help build a strong team with all the right ingredients that is trust, loyalty, honesty etc.
An open communication environment helps a lot in implementing productive brainstorming sessions and hence increase the level of innovation. It gives the feeling to the employees that they are a part of decision making and hence performance levels improves.
ENSURE EMPOWERMENT AND TRANSPARENCY
It facilitates the employees to take initiatives thereby increasing empowerment. High talent pool flourishes the most in such environment. It gives motivation to employees to come forward and take command. Everything is spoken about and hence transparency is ensured.
Effective communication increase accountability as everybody is clear about their responsibility as well about others. Hence, any mistake can be tracked down to who was responsible for it and held accountable.
LEADS TO LOW COMPANY TURNOVER RATE BY BOOSTING JOB SATISFACTION
Happy employees are loyal employees. Effective communication creates a comfort zone for the employees which ensure longer retention of the employees. They feel obligated to their company and hence poses a positive impact on the new employees as well thereby leading to low company turnover rate.
