Communication in Organisations


In order to achieve their goals most modern organisations rely entirely on the attitudes, emotions, relationships and skills of their employees. Their motivation and feeling of ownership and identity is created within the organisational setting surrounding each individual. Their feeling of participation, trust, openness and credibility is to a large extent based on the prevailing communication climate of the organisation.
