The paper "Modern Changes and Challenges That Are Currently Trending in Today’ s Organisation" is a perfect example of a business case study. The keys issues that are addressed in the report include communication challenges that organizations face in the age of the Internet, communication challenges for organisations in regard to making effective decisions and addressing employee retention, the need for organizations to be socially and environmentally responsible, and the communication challenges that arise as a result of the growth of organisations. The report notes that these changes and challenges can be addressed by making organisations more open and responsive in the way they communicate with different stakeholders such as employees and customers. Introduction Today’ s workplace is surrounded by changes and challenges that arise from different macro-environmental factors.
Such factors include technology, regulatory requirements, awareness of the natural environment, workplace diversity, employee retention and many others. The report will delve into some of these changes and challenges and assess how they affect organisations such as Innovative Services Ltd. The report will particularly focus on changes and challenges from the perspective of contemporary communication channels and communication networks in organisations, communication flow within organisations, the impact of technology and social media in organisational communication, barriers to effective communication, intercultural communication, organising and managing information in the workplace, and communication for a safe workplace in organisations locally and internationally. The changes and challenges Communication problems in the age of the Internet In today’ s business environment, organisations have to be good communicators by being connected to key stakeholders such as customers and employees as well as other stakeholders.
Organisations have to constantly address issues raised by these stakeholders through the Internet and other forms of communication (Robbins et al.
2015, p. 594). The Internet benefits organisations by giving them a platform through which they can communicate with their stakeholders through tools such as their own websites and social media.
