CSEET syllabus - Paper -1- Business Communication

What is Business Communication?

Business communication is the process of sharing information between people within and outside a company. For a company secretary, proper communication is very important as he is the person who communicate with various departments within the organisation, outside the organisation and general public.

Effective business communication is how employees and management interact to reach organizational goals. Its purpose is to improve organizational practices and reduce errors. Business communication plays a big role in the success of an organisation.

The importance of business communication also lies in:

  1. Presenting options/new business ideas

  2. Making plans and proposals (business writing)

  3. Executing decisions

  4. Reaching agreements

  5. Sending and fulfilling orders

  6. Successful selling

  7. Effective meetings

All organized activity in a company relies on the process of business communication. This could be anything from managerial communication to technical communication with vendors. Effective communication is very important while communicating within the organisation, among the employees, among management, with regulatory authorities, governments both national and international.

And once communication becomes unclear, the company’s core systems risk falling apart.
