Annually, Better Business Communication Day is observed on the fourth Monday of January. The date this year is January 23. The purpose of this award has always been to recognise the efforts of those who communicate effectively. This indicates that their precise, succinct, and direct communication achieved its intended aim. Better Business Communication Day, unlike many other fictitious holidays that serve little to no value, aims to improve business communication in order to avoid losses. The purpose of this holiday is to improve communication on a personal and professional level so that individuals can make better decisions.
HISTORY OF BETTER BUSINESS COMMUNICATION DAY
There is no record of when Better Business Communication Day was established as a national holiday. The objective is to determine when enhanced corporate communication became a prerequisite for excellent business operations. Prior to the development of language, people communicated through body language and sign language.
In 2400 B.C., the pharaohs of Ancient Egypt employed the first courier system, utilising pigeons and people to transport their messages throughout the state. For centuries, pedigreed pigeons hired privately have been used to transport messages to remote places. In the 17th century, the first system of Royal Mail was established in the United Kingdom, and a similar system was implemented in the United States in the 18th century.
With the advent of science and technology, communication has become more fast and simple. Enterprises and people living in remote places were able to be reached, and businesses may grow as a result. Today, when every form of communication is quite simple, corporations continue to struggle with effective communication, resulting in huge losses. Therefore, the purpose and objective of Better Business Communication Day is not to emphasise the means of communication, but rather to increase the entire quality of communication. The most important thing to remember is to enhance the encrypted message and its transmission so that it becomes simple to send and receive the intended message. Therefore, this day is especially devoted to individuals who make the effort to communicate effectively in order to ensure the success of enterprises.
