Why Communication Is Foundational to Any Business


Growing up, I was taught that it was important to work hard, study, and be honest. But I can’t recall anyone teaching me that it was essential to be a good communicator. And yet today, I run a company that helps other companies communicate effectively to millions of employees. I guess someone messed up my curriculum.

Over the years, I’ve come to understand how truly foundational it is to make sure employees know what’s going on, so they can help create success. After all, how can management expect positive outcomes if you don’t inform the people doing the work about the company’s direction and what is expected of them?

According to research by McKinsey Global Institute, having employees who are engaged in their organizations can increase productivity by 20-25%. This shows that keeping employees in the know, regardless of how you share the message, can make a noticeable difference in the overall efficiency of a workplace.

If you’re reading this blog, you realize the importance of workplace communication and are trying to find out how your company can do better. I get that it can be pretty daunting, especially because today the most effective type of communication is visual. So, how can you make it happen without it taking up a lot of your time?
