Memo Writing Assignment – Conveying Bad News about a Holiday Gift
Memo Writing Assignment: The Scenario
Sarah Bross, the CEO at Blessmark Industries, is announcing that she can no longer provide a Thanksgiving turkey to each employee. This is not a dire situation for anyone, but her employees will be disappointed by the loss of this annual Thanksgiving gift.
As many mangers have come to know, it is common for the recipients of a special perk to eventually regard the benefit as entitlement, not as an occasional generosity.
For this assignment, you are Sarah Bross, writing this memo to her 250 employees at Blessmark Industries. This tradition began in 2011, when there were only 50 employees, but now unfortunately, with 250 employees this personal expense can no longer continue.
