Communication Score

The Communication indicator is a measure of how well your organization communicates its targets, strategy, and vision to its employees. This can include factors such as the clarity and consistency of messaging, the availability of channels and forums for communication, and the level of engagement and feedback from employees. A high level of communication indicates a clear and aligned organization where employees understand the goals and direction of the organization and are able to contribute to and support its success.
