can anyone help me?

Fearing his competitors might get advance word about his plans from talkative staff members, Hughes preferred reticence from his employees to loquacity.

What does the sentence mean?

"get advance word" mean?

"word in advance" would be the natural way to say it.

or "advanced notice"
