The paper "Valos Choice of Communication " is a great example of a finance and accounting assignment. The information is too inadequate for such an important agenda. Valos ought to have gathered extensive information particularly concerning the reasons for rescheduling the timetable and the impact it could have created on the company and the workers. She also ought to have explained how any problem that arises as a result of the changes can be addressed among other important issues. Valos’ choice of communication was no appropriate. She ought to have initiated the communication through a written notice before convening the meeting.
In so doing, the workers could have attended the meeting knowing what was expected of them. Furthermore, they could have organized themselves for questions on matters that need clarification. To be even more effective, Valos could have prepared a report concerning the new policy and issue it to the workers before the meeting. All in all, adequate time ought to have been set aside for this important agenda, and not a few minutes just before the knock out time. Valos wanted to communicate a new policy requirement to her employees.
She wanted the receivers to understand and perhaps accept the reasons for the introduction of the new policy requirement concerning changes in working hours. She however did not seem to understand the implications of her policies to the workers. She cared less about their feelings and reaction. That is why she never bothered to allocate enough time for questions. In addition, the massage should have been made accurately and clearly. For example, just stating that “ I have been told… ” leaves the receiver with a question of who had told her, a questioned that is not answered.
She also ought to have stated the exact date of commencement of the policy instead of passing a general statement that “ new hours will come into effect from the last Monday in February” . Finally and very important, the receivers were not given the opportunity to communicate their feelings and reaction. The closing of the session was so unreceptive and seemed to discourage questions.
