Organisational barriers are related to organisational - structure, authority relationships, rules and
regulations, etc. Some of these barriers are as follows:
(i) Organisational policy Communication is hampered, if the policy of an organisation does not support the free flow of communication
(ii) Rules and regulations Rigid rules and cumbersome procedures act as a barrier to effective communication. Communication through the prescribed channels may result in delays.
(iii) Organisational facilities Lack of facilities like suggestion box, frequent meetings, complaint box, social and cultural gatherings may lead to barriers to effective communication.
(iv) Complexity of organisation structure When there are several managerial levels, communication gets delayed and distorted.
