From the Paper:

"The value of communication should be at the front of every communicator's mind. Communicators need to clearly show the connection between business strategy and employee actions. An effective internal communication plan can be part of any organization's communication strategy. Feedback is a critical element in the communication lifecycle. By using measurement techniques, plans can be put into action. With effective communication, managers can celebrate and recognize achievements and staff contributions. Internal communication leads to improved performance, efficiency, and operational effectiveness. It emphasizes face-to-face and two-way communication, empowers staff, and creates opportunities for learning and development."
