Effective Communication in Global Economy

Losses and project delays are terms that the professional world is not stranger to. While these occasions may arise due

to technical glitch or negligence on part of employees, often times they happen due to miscommunication. Effective communication, as we have already discussed in our earlier posts, is of paramount importance in the business world. Especially in today’s global economy where transactions across borders are taking place, a common language for interaction is required. But even with a common language one can get lost while navigating through the global economy world.

It’s essential to understand your international clients. Their customs and culture will vary from yours, they might not be aware of your public holidays and their working hours might be different from yours. It would be helpful to find out your clients’ working schedule and make your schedule known to them as well, so that together you can workout something. Also, they might not be acquainted with your jargon, so make sure to make everything clear from before hand to let the communication proceed uninhibitedly. When dealing with international clients, it is better not to use slang, for they might take it in an unintended sense and get offended. Formality is a safer path.

Fortunately for us, today’s technological advancements have made unhindered undistorted communication possible. Video conferencing is a common practice today by which not only international colleagues but national ones too prefer to communicate. Foremost example of such technology is Skype that we are all familiar with.

Thus to summarize, for effective global communication, understanding the international clientele is very important as their culture and customs are different from ours. In business, simple and concise language is always a wiser choice than obscure statements that create unnecessary ambiguity.

Key Features of a Business Writing Website

– Avinanda Paul

Effective communication is instrumental to success. With the increasing popularity of the internet as a launch pad for business, there’s an increasing demand for content writers who can promote the hiring company. For such purpose, Business Writing Websites provide skillful writers. A business writing website must have certain key features that would assure potential clients of the efficiency of its services. The best way to identify these features is by putting oneself in the position of a customer.

Visual Appeal
Human brain judges everything by its external appearance. Even in the case of a website, a neat yet impressive page design is important to grab and hold attention of the visitors.

Easy Navigation
Users should find it easy to navigate through the website. In a world where every second matters, if you had to waste your precious time on a website because of its faulty organization, would you ever want to do business with it?

Meaningful Content
The content of the website should be brief, concise and purposeful. No customer would like to hire writers from a company that itself has an obscure web-content.

Lucid Language
The language of the content must be free of grammatical and spelling errors, for these imply indifference. The language should be simple and the audience should not feel that their vocabulary is being tested. If you were a page visitor, wouldn’t you like the website to have flawless language that is easily understandable?

Essential Pages
Three pages that are essential for any business website are the About page, the Work page and the Contact page. About page would give the customer an idea about your company and its work. Next, you would want to encourage clients to do business with you. For this, previous works can be enlisted in the Work page. If you happen to impress them but don’t have a proper contact page, customers would not waste another minute in trying to figure out how to get in touch with you.

The trick in business is, to convince without sounding pushy. A business writing website unlike other business websites can prove its efficiency in the little web space given to it. Every inch of the website must bring out the efficiency of its services. With user friendly appearance and organization of meaningful, error free content the business writing website can win over clients smoothly.

Communication Challenges faced by Indian Companies

Communication is the backbone of any company. Irrespective of sectors, most companies have started taking notice of communication as a silent yet important factor in the success of internal as well as external operations. Here are some of the problems that companies typically face with respect to internal and external communication.

1. Collaboration with people from other regions/nations :
Indian companies are no longer standalone units, thus requiring a close collaboration between Indian and their foreign counterparts.

2. Language barrier:
Language forms a barrier between people. This is addressed by using English as a means of communication. But, varied accents and pronunciation still makes it difficult for people to convey their thoughts effectively.

3. Hierarchy in organizations:
Usually a well-defined hierarchy in Indian companies makes communication a complex phenomenon.

4. Lack of Infrastructure:
Infrastructure plays an important role in establishing communication channels. But many Indian companies have not yet reached the awareness and maturity level required to understand the importance of investing in good communication tools.

5. Lack of soft skills:
The real challenge comes in form of the human behavior, which may aid or hamper the communication process.

6. Inefficient informal communication channel:
The employees should strive to develop better interpersonal relationships at work in order to make communication more effective and flow of information much smoother.

7. Documentation or lack of it:
The lack of documentation can hamper effective communication. This leads to confusion and lack of clarity about roles, decisions and expectations from employees.

8. Distance factor:
E-mails are the fastest and most efficient way to convey and document information across distances. However, using it in lieu of an informal verbal exchange makes it unprofessional.

9. Laid-back Attitude:
Another problem that Indian companies face is the laid-back attitude of employees in responding back to the written communication. This renders the entire process of requesting information useless.

10. Complex and difficult:
There is a tendency of people going overboard with writing ‘properly’.  Good communication is simple to understand, is clear and conveys the purpose effectively.

Training programs, globalization and the responsibilities that come with it are resulting in slow but steady improvement in workplace communication. There still are many challenges, but it is only a matter of time before we overcome them.
