Saying that effective workplace communication is important is like saying water is wet, fire is hot, or that people with small children will repeatedly, and painfully, step on Legos many, many times. These are all blatantly self-evident (especially the Lego one).  However, just because everyone knows that effective workplace communication is important, does NOT mean that it’s happening everywhere. Consider these statistics: 28% of employees cite ineffective communication as the number one reason why they cannot deliver work on time.86% of employees and executives believe that ineffective communication is the core reason for workplace failures.Ineffective communication costs large enterprises an average of...

When French West Vaughan in Raleigh, NC - the nation’s 15th largest independently-held public relations and integrated marketing agency -  needed to replace their 20-year old phone system they started doing some research.
