Effective communication in the workplace

Does effective communication matter in the workplace?

Gartner’s research showed that 70% of the company’s mistakes are due to poor communication. In a survey of 400 corporations, it was found that communication barriers cost an estimated $37 billion per year in lost productivity. This makes a clear case of why effective communication is important at the workplace. In fact, conflict management, employee engagement and productivity, client relationships, and project collaborationall have one common underlying success factor—effective communication.

Workplace conflicts mostly occur due to misunderstanding or not understanding how to communicate. Effective communication training helps resolve this by ensuring that the“message is sent and received accurately.” A powerful outcome of effective communication is engaged employees. The more engaged the employees are, the easier it becomes for them to align with business goals and perform optimally.

Employees who believe that managers are really listening to them are almost fivetimes more likely to be enthusiastic and 21 times more likely to feel loyal to their company.
