Business 2 Community    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Workplace communication is important to every organization. It's how ideas are shared, people are informed, success is recognized, and issues are addressed. Without communication, silos develop, and people are left in the dark. A lack of communication will have a negative impact not only on employee morale and customer service, but it will also reduce productivity. And as flexible work arrangements are on the rise, it is increasingly important to keep feedback flowing and communication regular. Having a strong internal network of communication in place will pay huge dividends. HR professionals should keep these suggestions in mind when thinking about improving internal communication. More

The net below is ready to catch anyone should they fall. Today, contact centers face a similarly tenuous balancing act. The business focus to develop positive relationships with consumers while juggling a growing and evolving array of compliance regulations is enough to elevate the fear of falling — and failing to comply.

Data breach events are a growing risk management issue for small businesses as they accumulate an ever-increasing volume of customer, employee, and proprietary information.
