Why communication is important in business?

Updated: Sep 26

Survival needs communication, every aspect of existence needs communication, even business being one of the characteristic of human existence needs communication.

The word communication derived from the Latin word Communicare, which means to impart or take part or participate. In the course of our day to day living, we need to take part with other human beings and also with things around us.

During the course of participation it becomes required to accept as well as to provide. This process of participation can be different, such as talking, writing, interacting, etc but all of this means communication. In business, people come together to perform tasks that requires communication with one another. Such a work situation makes communication essential and vital.

The business world today has become global, which make communication even more difficult. Communicating across different traditions requires communication skills that would allow people from different places to interact with each other in order to achieve extensive goals. So it is required to improve good communication skills. However, one of the ignored areas of human growth is communication.

Educational hubs teach the one thing that is perhaps most important for the future employees to know but very few bother to learn. This one basic skill is the ability to manage and express ideas in writing and speaking.

The moment you move ahead, your competency depends on your ability to reach others through your communication skills i.e. either spoken or written and the further away our job is from manual work the larger the organization of which you are an employee, the more important it will be that you know how to express your thoughts either in writing or speaking. In the very large organization, this ability to express oneself is perhaps the most important of all the skills a person can acquire.
