The worldwide epidemic has heightened the need for communication in recent months, as most teams now operate remotely. Poor communication, whether due to personal reasons or a lack of adequate technology, will undoubtedly result in unmotivated, ill-informed employees who may begin to doubt their talents and, eventually, the organization as a whole.
Maintaining good, long-term working connections at all levels of an organization requires effective communication. This is especially true while functioning remotely and dealing with uncertainty. Employers who invest in providing open lines of communication will quickly create confidence among their staff, resulting in increased productivity, output, and morale overall.
