How can grapevine be overcome?

The grapevine is from people interacting,
and is mostly rumor.

In other words, the grapevine will
continue to exist.

Managers, the organization, should
filter information through the
formal system of communication
about issues affecting employees.

Don't wait for the gossip to start.
Once a rumor starts, it's hard
to contain, control, it.

Meetings, training, on the
grapevine helps.

One sure way of overcoming
the grapevine is to ignore
the gossip, rumors.
