Question description

WRTG 394 students,

The following scenario represents another communication situation in a workplace.  The following is a memo.  

Please read the memo.  Then answer the questions below. 

To all staff:

Subject: Meeting

Three things for the meeting that you should think about ahead of time so you can come prepared to discuss. The scheduling of the reception desk continues to be a problem, we had it not covered twice this week alone. How to reorganize the space so we can fit in the new hires that start mid-month, Alan Gee who will assist Brenda, Martin O’Neil, the new hire for the customer service desk, and the other two are Selena Baraki and Dallas Smith, welcome additions to our staff.

It was impressive to see the way everyone pitched in last week, we got so much accomplished in so short of a time, you should all be congratulated. In any event, we will talk about that at the meeting also.

Taken from Chan, J. (2009). Chapter 7: On the Page: What is Good Writing?. In, Communication skills for managers, 5th Edition (pp. 97-112). American Management Association International
