Internal communications can be defined as the direct two way communications between employers and their staff. Effective internal communication - which can be said to be "downward, upward and horizontal”, is a vital means of addressing organisational concerns. Effective internal communication has been shown to help improve employee engagement through; increased job satisfaction, safety and decreased absenteeism, grievances and staff turnover. Such improvements are linked to improved productivity and overall profitability.
Internal communication isn't some warm and fuzzy optional nicety it is the lifeblood of any organisation. If blood of the right quality doesn’t circulate at just the right pressure and speed to all parts of the human body, those parts slow down and could stop working altogether. The body could then become sick and die…
An organisation where communication doesn't flow freely is no different. Whether an organisation has two or 200,000 employees, its ability to achieve its business objectives depends on how well it engages, aligns, and motivates its employees. Depending what research you buy in to, somewhere between 30% and 80% of all corporate change initiatives fail to achieve their objectives. Whatever body of research you read one of the main reasons will be poor communication within the team and or the enterprise at large.
Effective internal communication helps the organisation to meet its objectives. It is the vital link that encourages everyone to deliver on their responsibilities. Communication is not just the language; it involves trust, relationships, control and delegation. The ability of a company to carry on an effective dialogue with its employees directly affects the bottom line performance, driving such objectives as productivity, quality, safety, customer loyalty, and employee retention. p>
