  2. 2. 2 Business communication trends and innovations are further taking place through rapidly advancing technologies creating dramatic changes to cope with the complexities in a global economy future business communications. According to Locker and Kienzler’s book: business and administrative communication, eighth edition (2008), both business and business communications are changing. Ten trends in business, government, and nonprofit organizations affect business and administrative communication: technology changes, including information overload and data security versus privacy; a focus on quality and customers’ needs; entrepreneurship; teamwork; diversity; globalization and outsourcing; legal and ethical concerns; balancing work and family; job flexibility; and the rapid rate of change (Trends in Business and Administrative Communication section, p. 13-14). Business Communication Tools and Technologies Organizations are using these following tools and technologies to communicate internally and externally. Personal digital assistant (PDAs): Hand held devices such as the BlackBerry, Droid, Inspire, iPhone, or Palm (also known as smartphones), which allows users to communicate beyond telephone calls through e-mail, file sharing, chat messaging, and text messaging. These devices are touch screen functional capable of broadcasting video stream and audio allowing employees to remain connected with companies 24/7. Portable media players: Hand held devices such as iPods, MP3 players, and cell phones; demonstrate abilities to stream video and audio. General announcements, meetings, product information, and note taking are optional for uploading as recordings on these devices assisting employees to remain informed. Social-networking tools: Software allowing users to share a profile, blog, or useful links allowing employees to interact with one another personally. Including communicating work
  3. 3. 3 related information, as well as promote inter-departmental collaboration. Telepresence: Hardware and software for videoconferencing that create lifelike virtual meetings using 50-inch plasma screens through the use of broadcast-quality cameras. These video meetings can instantaneously occur across different time zones between nations or organizations. Wikis; an Internet content knowledge management electronic tool allowing users to post information or project collaborate. Managing Business Communication In Daily Work Activities Business communication greatly helps in maximizing work efficiency for time saving. Eliminating the time taken to rewrite badly written materials, in redoing projects, and recreating specialty products. Reducing reading time for easier comprehension and clarity. By ensuring clarity through questions such as, “Can you repeat that?” Making efforts more effective after communicating a request for positive and accurate results. Communicating points more clearly in reducing misunderstandings to lessen mishaps, mistakes, and loss of revenue to maximize productivity and efficiency safely. Revealing issues of disagreement to resolve in a timely manner quickly, and encouraging goodwill to be built for a positive image within the organization. By building an image of a capable, intelligent, knowledgeable person deserving for a higher position for increase pay and respectable stature. Trends Witnessed Within The Workplace The following trends I have witness within the work environment to make good use of day-to-day for optimal benefit personally and professionally. Personal digital assistant (PDAs), portable media players such as iPods, MP3 players, cell phones, social-networking tools such as hotschedules.com, facebook.com, and wikis; an Internet content knowledge management electronic tool allowing coworkers to post information.
  4. 4. 4 What message types are results of these trends? Workers are overwhelmed with information overload from all the information available to them. The amount of e-mail, text messages, chat messages, mail, and voicemails received daily. Spam cluttering mailboxes when unmonitored forcing e-mail filters to stop some needed e-mail through accidental deletion. Simply put, spam prevents important e-mail from reaching its destination to be opened because of recognition issues by email filters. E-mail abuse from e-mail addicted workers sending too many e-mails from forwarded jokes to pictures to the website links contribute to information overload. Business communication trends more often bring a positive message into the workplace versus a negative message. The pros outweigh the cons! Conclusion With a rapid pace in advancing technologies as communication devices continue emerging to increase business efficiency quickening the facilitation of information between employees, customers, and business associates throughout the world. Businesses organizations today confront communication overload-related issues. Newer sophisticated technologies are expected to emerge to replace its predecessors in helping people to manage the ever-growing business communication complexities organizations face. People will continue to utilize these technologies professionally for greater benefit in efficiency within the scope of business. At the same time, people will use these technologies personally for advantage, convenience, entertainment, and satisfaction for self gain to benefit. Technological engagement continues to remain an integral part of any business more so as of the present time than ever before in remaining competitive. The foundational strategies in the dynamics of communication technologies have been helping businesses proceed toward a
  5. 5. 5 platform of collaborative management beyond customer-centric management in which all the engaging players within the business sphere may participate in achieving organizational objectives defining the terms: performance, profits, and excellence. Business communication trends importance will continue to be emphasized in society.
