You are an executive in a laundry processing plant and you need to get some new company policy information to one of your plant workers.  In the structure of the plant, there is a supervisor that this employee reports directly to, and that supervisor then reports directly to you.
However, a communication barrier exists in this situation.  The employee you need to get the new company policy information to cannot read.
For this assignment, what choices do you have, as an executive, to get this information successfully to that employee?

There can be various reasons for communication barriers in an organization; an ideal organization has three type of communications. 1) top down, 2) down top, 3) horizontal.

Let's discuss in detail about these three types of different communications flows present in every organization.

Top down communications represents the communication or orders floating from the Top management of the company towards the working peers under them, the barrier in this case can be that the lowest level of people might never have the chance to communicate with the top management.

Down top communication is very essential especially in sales and customer services or market research activities, here the management rely on the feed back from the lowest level workers who are directly coordinating of performing the tasks assigned to them.

Horizontal communication is the level which is present between two people working at the same level in an organization; the barrier can be that professional jealousy or secrecy amongst the two or more individuals.
