Organizational communication is an essential element that affects different aspects within companies and businesses. The incorporation of a company in Colombia can be carried out legally, also depending on the communication direction that the company takes in its internal operations, here we will explain how.
What is organizational communication?
Organizational communication corresponds to the means and strategies that companies use to communicate certain information to all the departments that make up the company internally.
On the other hand, it is also applied in the commercial sphere. Especially when companies make use of the mass media to get information about a product or service to potential consumers.
This is how organizational communication can be defined as the main center that allows an organization to function. If the members of the same are not able to transmit the information through the pertinent means, the achievement of the goals and objectives of the company will slow down (and in some cases will not be achieved).
What is the type of communication to be implemented in the organization?
This is a factor that the future shareholders of the company should evaluate before carrying it out. Entrepreneurs can rely on the objectives that they are going to establish or the good or service that they are going to produce and then market to define what would be the type of organizational communication that best suits the situation of the company.
It is important to develop an organization chart in which you can graphically visualize how the organizational communication is going to be composed in the company. It will be possible to show the corresponding legal entities what will be the methods that will be applied for the preparation of the communication plan.

- Downward communication
It is the type of communication in which all the information regarding the company is issued from the highest positions in hierarchical terms to the lowest.
