How Much Is Poor Communication Costing Your Business?

Teams rely on efficient communication for effective collaboration. Yet, most organizations are riddled with communication inefficiencies, such as inefficient and lengthy meetings, confusion-inducing emails, and meandering, logic-lacking presentations.

These factors all drain your business of its most valuable assets: time, energy and money.

The Cost of Poor Communication

A 2023 study by ProjectCO revealed that ineffective communication results in decreased productivity, increased stress, employee burnout, and substandard customer service. All this affects your employee morale and retention, as well as your bottom line.

Business communication problems lead to:

Wasted time

60% of employees think most meetings they attend are pointless.

Increased Stress

42% of employees experience burnout, stress, or fatigue because of communication inefficiencies.

Diminshed Satisfaction

30% of customers report a subpar customer experience arising from communication challenges.

Bringing in a speaker with the right expertise is a game changer. It can catapult your progress in all these areas, resulting in improved collaboration, higher productivity, and less frustration across the board.
