Organizational Barriers

The term “organizational barriers” refers to restrictions on employee communication that could lead to a company’s commercial failure.

The major Organizational Barriers are listed below:

Organizational Rules and Policies: Organizations frequently have policies governing the type of message, medium, and mode that should be used for communication. Additionally, the strict regulations prevent the staff members from sending any messages.

Organizational Status or Hierarchical Positions: Based on their organizational levels, personnel in each organization are grouped into a number of categories. Communication between those in the upper tiers of the hierarchy would be formal because they are superior to those in the lower levels. Effective communication may frequently be hindered by this formal communication. 

Organizational Facilities: The term “organizational facilities” refers to the tools that are made available to employees to help with communication, such as a phone, stationery, translator, etc. The communication is stated to be timely, accurate, and need-based when these facilities are sufficiently provided for the employees. Conversely, communication could suffer if these facilities weren’t available.

Complex organizational structure: If there are more management levels in the organization, communication suffers. As levels increase, communication is delayed and may change before it reaches its intended recipient.

As a result, good communication is essential to any company’s success. It occurs when employees communicate with one another in a way that benefits both the company as a whole and each individual employee.
