Improving Communication in the Workplace

*This article first appeared on ProSky

Communication occurs in our everyday lives and is therefore inevitable in the workplace. It’s something we all have to do and need to pay so much attention to. Communication isn’t just about what is said verbally, but also includes nonverbal cues.

This is enough reason why it should be so important to improve communication in your workplace, in order to avoid any form of miscommunication where necessary.

The risks of miscommunication are not worth realizing in a work environment. It can create challenges such as a conflict between members of staff or lack of trust. Negative communication can also have an effect on the morale of employees and may create a situation where employees or departments begin to work in silos.

Should You Tell Your Boss You’re Looking For Another Job?

If you’re embarking on a career change or just looking for a new challenge, you will have to consider whether or not to inform your boss of this. For most employees, the idea of telling their boss that you’re looking elsewhere is a worrying concept, and most of us will avoid doing so until the last possible moment.

However, there is a school of thought which suggests that perhaps honesty is indeed the best policy and that you might be missing out if you withhold this information from your boss. So, in an effort to help you decide the right way forward for you, let’s dig into arguments so you can make an informed decision: should you tell your boss when you’re looking for another job?

The Changing Job Market: An Immigrant’s Story
