CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1 Background of the Study
Communication is indispensable in all spheres of human and business endeavours. It is the lifewire and the key success of all business organizations. Communication involves everybody, it is the pivot upon which the existence of human and business organizations revolves and based on this, the issue of communication has developed into a major area of study and formidable social force. Consequently communication can be defined as the “exchange of information between a sender and a receiver, and the inference (perception) of meaning between the individuals involved (Bowditch, 2014:101). Analysis of this exchange reveals that communication is a two way process consisting of consecutively linked elements. Managers who understand this process can analyze their own communication patterns as well as design communication programmmes that fit organizational needs (Kinicki & Kreitner, 2016:90).
Bernard (2013:56), saw communication as “the means by which people are linked together in an organization to achieve a common goal”. If a manager is to relate to his subordinates, he must communicate effectively if an organization wishes to sty in business and enjoy high patronage, there must be effective communication. Also if management wants its decision implemented, it must communication its policies and programmes effectively.
As much as humans may want to ignore the essence of communication, the concept remains just a distant elusion. This is typically the case in business where communication is the pivot around which the success or failure of a company or organization depends.
Communication is widely used in running almost all organizations effectively. Effective communication is essential for any business or organization to prosper. It cuts out wasted time and provides both customers and employees with the necessary tools to succeed and find satisfaction. When communication is not effective, the end result is an increase in production and service time. In order to avoid this outcome, effective communication must be in place (Joey, 2012:67).
Communication is applied to all phases of management. It is particularly important in the function of leading. Communication is critical for all levels of human behaviour, man’s ability to think and transmit the thought through the communication process, provides the binding elements for social interaction. The relationship between success
and failure of human endeavour depend to a great extent upon the effectiveness of communication.
According to Johnson (2014:42), the management effectiveness depends on his ability to listen, to read, to speak and to write. Unfortunately, the importance of communication has not been well recognized in business.  It is generally believed that anyone with common sense can write, most Managers write to impress not to express. Effective communication is a fundamental aspect of job performance and managerial effectiveness.  Hence, this research study examined communicating and organizational Performance of Union Bank main Office Enugu as a case study.

Ineffective communication constitutes a major problem to any organization. It goes a long way in preventing such organization from achieving the set objectives. Irrespective of the different perspective one may look at it, be it from the angle of the employee or the employer, it is always believed that ineffective communication is unfavourable towards the realization of the organizational goals.   
Ineffective communication is seen as a problems caused by different 'barriers. Physical distraction is one of the barriers. This occurs when the elements of the surrounding such as poor lighting, background noises, atmosphere, etc can really drive off your focus span during communication.
Furthermore, another barrier is attitude. If you feel strong emotions like anger or unhappy, you will most likely feel uncomfortable to listen or even speak with someone. In addition, language barriers can happen anytime. Everyone have their own mother tongue language as well as their own interpretation of certain words and phrases. This may affect effective communication, when one does not understand another person’s language.
