Value of Effective Communication

how Important is effective communication?

Everyone understands the importance of effective communication, but it is often difficult to quantify its value. A recent PBS Benchmark study looked at the following statements to see just how much better best-of-the-best organizations compare when it comes to communication:

  • “Communication flows effectively from upper management to employees.” The best-of-the-best exceeded the benchmark by 13 percent.

  • “When good or bad things happen at my company, employees hear about it in a timely manner.” The best-of-the-best exceeded the benchmark by 17 percent.

  • “My supervisor/manager keeps us informed about our organization’s plans.” The best-of-the-best exceeded the benchmark by 14 percent.

  • “Managers and supervisors in my organization seek the opinions and thoughts of the employees who work here.” The best-of-the-best exceeded the benchmark by 16 percent.

  • “I am clear on my organization’s goal and future direction.” The best-of-the-best exceeded the benchmark by 15 percent.
