Communication helps living
being (human beings, animals, even
birds) share their feelings with oth-
ers. Information sharing takes place
through effective communication.
Communication plays an impor-
tant role in development of
employees. Communication helps
in the exchange of ideas, thoughts
and information through speech,
signals, writing and so on. How
would you feel if you are not
allowed to express your feelings to
your family, your friends and, in
fact, the whole world?
You would feel demotivated,
neglected and a sense of frustration
would soon develop. The same
thing happens with the employees
Everyone would agree that an
employee actually spends his max-
imum part of the day, striving hard
to accomplish the goals and objec-
tives of the organisation. No organ-
isation gives salary for free.
What would happen if employ-
ees who give their heart and soul
to an organisation do not have the
liberty to speak and express their
thoughts? Trust me there would
be dissatisfaction all around, no
one would work sincerely for the
organisation. eventually affecting
its performance in the long run.
Employees should have the right
to express their opinions in front
of others if you really want them
to develop and grow professionally.
No amount of trainings or employ-
ee development activities would
help, if employees have no choice
but to accept whatever is imposed
Let them speak. They would
infact come out with better ideas
as to what all skills and activities
would help them perform better.
Encourage healthy communi-
cation among employees. An indi-
vidual should be aware of what
his fellow workers are up to. Let
him speak to his colleague. Let
him find out what all skills his col-
league knows and he still has to
learn. An employee acquires new
learnings while on job itself.
Employees should be motivated to
work in teams.
Remember a manager s role is
not just to sit in closed cabins,
shout on employees and commu-
nicate with them only through
emails. Emails are an important
medium of communication, but
nothing can beat verbal or face to face
communication. Managers must sit
with their teams twice or thrice to
review their work, share feedbacks and
whenever required address their griev-
An employee should have the lib-
erty to walk up to his manager s cabin
in case of queries. If you do not allow
your employee to speak, how would
you know in which all areas he is
lacking and what kind of training
would help him? Be there for your
team. Do not force anything on your
employees. Let them come out with
their problems for you to suggest the
Introduce the concepts of morning
meetings. Meetings can be conducted
department wise, branch wise and so
on. Each and every employee partic-
ipating in the meeting should have
the liberty to express his/her view
points. Respect other s opinions.
An employee should have the free-
dom to express his/her thoughts and
share information irrespective of his
designation or level in the hierarchy.
There are some people who do not
open up easily in front of others.
Install a drop box in the reception
area and ask employees to write their
feedbacks, opinions or any other
query on a piece of paper and put it
in the dropbox.
Do not ask them to write their
names but yes do ensure they men-
tion their departments or functional
areas. This would at least help you
understand what all new training pro-
grams or sessions you need to intro-
duce in the organisation.
After every training program, do
take feedback of employees. The feed-
backs must be carefully monitored
and implemented. Try to make your
trainings more effective in the future.
Two-way communication makes
an employee more confident and one
starts believing in the organisation.
