Shareholders and Stakeholders, if they are to reap any rewards for their investments should ensure that the directors and management of the businesses are able to show and demonstrate that there is fair and equitable relations between themselves and the employees of the business.

This misunderstanding of communications is great, and many people hide it within themselves which can cause anger and frustration later. This resentment and bitterness can cause huge harm with relations with friends and family and put huge strains on these relationships especially if they are not brought to the surface and discussed openly and honestly to find a solution that lasts.
