Some experts estimate that the US economy wastes $75 billion annually because of poor English skills. Others say that 80 percent of corporate waste can be tied directly to ineffective communications. In written and spoken communications, the goal is to reduce waste and contribute to making a more positive workplace.
Poor communication at work causes: absenteeism, turnover, conflict, tension, low productivity, complaints, wasted time, and low morale. Proper communication positively impacts every part of the organization: leadership, sales, external customer service, and the day-to-day interactions of all internal customers. By addressing and resolving communication problems, you and your business are moving toward building a more pleasant workplace environment and saving money at the same time.
