as Sainsbury's and Cadburys.


Telephone ? When the business is a big building or is a group of small

way which are close or far away when telling another group of colleges

something important e.g. Telling them that their supplies have

arrived. It is the main way of communicating around the business.

Telephones are appropriate when you need to talk to someone when it is

quicker to ring them rather than going all the way over to the person.

Face to face communication ? This is when two of more colleges talk to

each other face to face. This could be general slacking or telling

them useful information. It is the quickest way of communicating. But

if the receiver doesn?t write the message down they will forget the

message and it may be important to the functioning of the business.

Face to face is appropriate when you need to tell someone a message

quickly and they are next to you or if they are in the same area as


Meetings ? Sometimes it is important that everyone meets face to face

to discuss business issues. Usually, an assistant writes down what was

discussed and agreed. These are called the minutes and everyone gets a

copy. One problem of a meeting is that they take time and have to be

planned in advance to make sure that everyone can be there.
