Employee to employee communication is a routine act that takes place on daily basis in every organization, but for clarity to reign, certain factors must be put into consideration. Among these factors is trust, whereby employees must learn to trust each other and share information accordingly. Trust is essential because when employees trust each other, they can openly ask questions, air views and receive accurate information, which help them in their daily operations. For instance, a new employee can ask questions regarding the company’s vast aspects and due to the presence of trust-worthy employees, he receives accurate information that helps him handle his difficulties. This is a fact because untrustworthy working-mates pushes each employees to their own cages, where they do not trust fellow employees and cannot ask questions; hence, communicate. Therefore, trust is the prime factor to consider because it grants various channels of effective employee to employee communication.
Communication between employees also comes in under a different perspective of professionalism, whereby employees are obliged to communicate professionally without interfering with each others’ duties. In this regard, efficient modes of communications like the telecommunication services become the most effective mode of communication. This is the case because most organizations have embraced technology, and internet or telephone communication from one office to the other becomes the norm. Technology enabled communication allows different employees to communicate freely and privately without moving around; thus, fostering efficiency and professionalism. Nevertheless, other organizations opt for memos as the mode of communication between offices. Memos are old mode of communication, but are convenient and professional in the sense that they outlay their message accordingly without causing any disruptions like movements, which are usually evident when employees communicate verbally.
