Communication in the Limbe1 council was the key to solve any problem faced while doing their job because they can speak out their grievances to their employer so they could be solved.

Communication is a two-way process of reaching mutual understanding, in which participant not only exchange information, news, ideas and feels but also create and share meaning. In general, communication is a means of connecting people, in business, it is the key function of management.

An organization cannot operate without communication within levels, department and employee.

The oldest known symbols created for the purpose of communication were cave painting, a form of art-rock, dating to the upper Paleolithic age. It is located within Chauvet cave, dated to 30000BC.

1.2 Problem Statement

Today’s communication is a very important ingredient in the world in general and the business environment in particular; communication plays a very important role to speak business success in a competitive environment.

Looking at an organization like HIBMAT, faced with a lot of problems such as establishing a good relationship with customers, retain customers due to ineffective channels of communication within the organization, the organization needs to set up measures to increase communication and make the role of communication effective.
