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:
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.
