Ironically, as the study was about communication, the researchers who collected the data could not immediately connect with the right department or person who could confirm if the company had a communication policy in place. Although several attempts were made to communicate by e-mail with many participants, a significant number of automated email responses were received. Practical implications. Knowing how to communicate ethically and effectively in every business situation is not only important but critical to business success. From sensitively articulated employee feedback to persuasive announcements to customers, today’s executive must be a frontline communicator. Originality of the study.

The results of the study confirm that effective - confidential and accurate - digital communication strategies and an appropriate communication policy implementation is conducive to the firm’s success. The findings indicate a possible link between effective communication of company information and the creation of competitive advantage.
