Long Answer Type Question:
How does informal organisation support the formal organisation? 


SOLUTION
The informal organization supports formal organization in many ways, some of them are as follows:
(i) Quick feedback Prescribed lines of communication are not followed. Thus, the informal organization leads to a faster spread of information as well as quick feedback.
(ii) Social needs It helps to fulfill the social needs of the members. This enhances their job satisfaction since it gives them a sense of belonging in the organization.
(iii) Flexibility Informal organization, rules, and policies are fixed, thus it is rigid in nature. On the other hand, in an informal organization, no such rules are there, thus leads to flexibility.
The existence of informal depends upon the formal structure because people working at different job positions interact with each other to form informal structure and the job positions are created in the formal structure. So, if there is no formal structure there will be no job position and no interaction so no informal structures.
