  3. 3. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY www.TopGradePapers.com ANALYSIS OF MORE PREFERRED WAY OF COMMUNICATION rs Background pe The economic condition of the world is really very bad and especially the impact on developed countries is gigantic. Due to such crisis our company is also going through very tough conditions. The economic condition is still very vague and it is not clear how deep this crisis could be. Even the best economists are not comfortable to predict the future outcome of the Pa economy. Some of them even say the worse part has yet to come and it has not bottom out. This recession could even be more dangerous and its implications would be far deeper than great depression of 1930. Almost every company has laid-off its employees in order to reduce the operating cost. The business activity is almost stagnant to declining. The current credit crunch de has squeezed the credit off take and financial institutions are very reluctant to extend credit to companies. Due to this reason employees are caught up with fear of losing their job. Their moral and motivation level has gone down. Their body language is not very positive and their ra productivity has reduced significantly do to stress. In such a crisis like environment it is the duty of the top management to make the situation clear to their employees and to make their employees understand about the current situation of the company and the economic condition.pG Our company is going to announce annual result to its employees. Most of the employees are already expecting to get fired and the circumstances are very unambiguous. It is a very critical time in the history of the company. It cannot afford to lose its employees productivity as well asTo it has to reduce its operating cost, so the mode of communication has to be very clear and unambiguous. There are two communication options are under consideration, one is to bring all the employees under one roof and to give them a PowerPoint presentation.

Time saving: time saved is money saved. This phrase explains the importance of time. Time is most essential component of any business and the time manager requires to fly over the head quarter could be used to generate more business activities. Web Pa conferencing can be used to save time, and have access to the most up-to-date in data. 3. Tractability of site: internet has reduced the time dramatically.

The use of hypermedia technology would keep all the details of documents and graphs updated, that can immediately be shared among meeting members. rs Disadvantages of Hypermedia: 1. Use of technology: It is possible that not every employee of the company is familiar pe with the technologies; older employees and businessmen are not very comfortable with the use of technologies and may get frustrated trying to cope up with the systems. The implementation of such technology would also be expense and may require some extra Pa time as well. 2. Absence of body language: Since this is going to be web conference, managers cant see the people there are meeting with and they won’t have the opportunity to make de decisions based on the ambiance of the room. They could not observe the body language of the employees as they would in an actual physical meeting. 3. Loss of attention: There is high probability that employees end up lose their ra interest and get bored when a particular topic under discussion has no interest to them at all and they may end up losing attention to meeting which is highly required frompG employees in such a emergency situation. 4.

  7. 7. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY www.TopGradePapers.com Conclusion & Recommendation PowerPoint is excellent mode of communication if one has to present text and photos etc in a rs linear fashion. But the critique of this mode of communication is that, it is more of a passive rather than interactive style of communication. Hypermedia would give the management many more opportunities for creating more versatility in making their multimedia presentations. pe Creating their own animations rather than choosing canned ones, having a non-linear presentation, and making presentations with much user friendly effects. It is much more creative. A lot of planning must go into a hypermedia presentation and this itself, is a critical to present the annual report. Although there are cons, they are far outweighed by the pros and one can Pa maximize business meetings by choosing the hypermedia as a mode of communication. The use of hypermedia would help company to save time and cost which is critical for the company at this point of time. The flexibility of location would also help its manager to stay in touch with de the vital clients and would not have to reschedule their meetings with them. Today one of the most important aspects of business is high quality customer services, which could only be attained by continuously lassie with the clients and fulfilling their requirements and needs. Another important reason to recommend this mode of communication is that it would allow more ra participation from the employees and they would feel more sense of ownership. More participation would also float out of the box ideas which may be critical for the future success of the company.pGTo 7 GET YOUR WORK DONE BY www.TopGradePapers.com
