Scots managers value communication with employees

Scottish
managers see effective communications with their own employees as ‘vital’, but
as many as one in three Scots organisations do not offer communications
training.

A
survey by the Carter Rae communications consultancy of 111 organisations in
Scotland found that one in five large organisations (those with more than 1,000
employees) and one in three smaller organisations did not offer communications
training to their employees.

This
dearth of training exists despite 90 per cent of respondents saying internal
communication across departments was ‘vital to the success of meeting business
objectives’.

Ron
Aitken, director of Carter Rae, said companies that did not have effective
communications could suffer under future European legislation.
