and here is the requirements

BAD NEWS LETTER


For this letter:

  • You may choose a letter assignment from our text.
  • You may chose to write a bad news letter of your own creation. Examples are:
    • Rejecting a claim, turning down the opportunity to be a guest speaker at an event, refusing a price adjustment, etc. Make sure it is business related and you use the INDIRECT approach.
  • You need to design a full company letterhead for this letter with graphic. Use clip art for the graphic as on the sample bad news letter.Make your own graphic, do NOT use another company's logo. Be creative here to earn full points.(10)
  • Use 12 point font, Times. See appendix for letter format.


BAD NEWS LETTER

A bad news letter is informing the reader that you are presenting them with information that is not what they desire. You may be presenting the reader with bad news such as not hiring someone, refusing to refund money for a product, deny a request to speak at an event, etc.

  • Do not begin the letter with the bad news!!! Instead, begin with a buffer, that is a statement or two that will soften the blow for the bad news to come. Review your text for examples of buffers.
  • In the next paragraph of your letter, give solid reasons as to why you cannot grant the request and then follow with the bad news. Review your text as to how to state the reasons and the bad news.
  • Be fair, but be firm in your decision. Do not give the reader false hope.
  • In closing, if the reader has options, state them. "You may want to consider using your vacation time or unpaid leave when your baby is born."
  • If no options exist, end the letter with a courteous close.
LETTERS ARE FOR EXTERNAL COMMUNICATION. MAKE SURE YOU ARE WRITING TO SOMEONE WHO IS NOT EMPLOYED IN THE COMPANY!
