Chapter 15 (Case Study):

Best Trust Bank

Case Summary:

Best Trust Bank has grown to become one of the world’s top 25 banks with 73,000 employees in 47 countries.  The company has built a reputation based on integrity and Paul Wysinsky, Vice President for Human Resources, says that one of the biggest challenges that Best Trust Bank faces is poor communication.  He is considering a new training course on preparing a clear written communication for managers in the company.  Although he records videos, speaks at company events, leads town hall meetings, and has a live video feed to allow employees to post questions and ideas, he still struggles with the amount of information that is not communicated effectively among all of the employees. 

Case Discussion Questions:

4. How has the media richness of Paul’s communications changed since the days he was a teller?

5. What sender and receiver skills are described in this case? Which ones needs improvement?  Offer one suggestion for improving the weak skills.

6. How might Paul improve upward communication and the communication culture more generally at Best Trust?

7. As the case study indicates, there appears to be a lack of clear communication occurring between the middle managers and top management.  The company’s future growth and development depends on clear upward communication to identify and resolve issues as they occur.  Identify the advantages achieved by using an effective two-way communication process versus only a one-way process.
