  1. Effects of poor communication

Organizational success is determined by the stakeholders’ role to work harmoniously to attain the set goals and objectives. Poor communication is among the most critical factors that promote failure in organizations by enthusing conflict between the employees making it difficult to solve problems. Additionally, it sours the relationship between the employees, hence, reducing the level of synergy which translates to lower productivity. Moreover, it promotes communication bias leading to confusion, rumors, and gossiping which demotivate the employees to achieve success (Guffey and Loewy 60).

Strategies to encourage Diversity and Inclusiveness

Guffey and Loewy posits that an organization that promotes the
development of work and professional relationships in supporting diversity must engage the employees fully in building the inclusiveness (109). Firstly, the management must set policies and values that promote and maintain acceptance within the organization. This should be followed by the employees’ engagement in responding to the practicability, importance and the challenges of the workforce for the benefit of the entire organization. Surveys, questionnaires and direct engagement through conferences would be the best choice in data collection. Moreover, successful implementation requires the management to use seminars and forums to educate and communicate about the changes within the organization to reduce rigidity to change. This is a crucial strategy because it helps the employees to associate themselves by becoming mentors and mentees in enhancing relationships to build a stronger synergic team.

Thirdly, the organization should instill a culture that promotes diversity and inclusiveness in achieving success. The culture bases on the analysis of the findings in building competent values that will see the company succeed. Successful culture allows the employees’ to bring new ideas, values, and customs that are combined centering on understanding and respecting the members by understanding the diversity elements. Lastly, the management should emphasize on continuous development based on accommodating the changing values in building a stronger culture through communication. Furthermore, communication becomes an important tool in streamlining the direction of the organization such as solving organizational conflicts and sharing of ideas that cultivate improvements (Mor-Barak 218).
