Business Communication Trends




In today's society, many different methods of communication have evolved. Where once the only forms of communication came from written documents and verbal communications, time has brought us such types of communication as email, PDA's and Smart phones. Other types of communications have improved business interactions is use of wireless networking and data management for a large building.

Currently, there are many types of communication that are used at the type of business that I currently work at. I work as a site supervisor for a security company. Currently we provide security services for a large distribution center. There are many different ways that I communicate with my security officers. In this type of industry, communication is not only necessary but it can mean losing lives and property if not done correctly.

Executives have access to company emails at home, through laptop computers that the distribution center provides. This keeps the executives aware of any security problems that there may be. This also allows the executives to communicate, when it is not possible for them to physically be at the site. Every email that a security guard gets must be printed out and placed on a clip board where every security officer can read the email. It is required that the security officer checks this pass down log at the beginning of every shift to ensure proper communication
