Explanation & Answer


Internal memo
To: All employees
From: Chief Executive Officer
RE: Downsizing and restructuring
Dear employee,
For the last few months, the company has been experiencing financial problems. In response, the
company merged with Boston Accounting Firm, a larger firm in the industry. Part of the process
of making the merger a success will include rapid restructuring. With restructuring, the company
regrets that some of you may have to be laid down, given compulsory leaves and early
retirements, or encouraged to resign. This follows a period of careful analysis which determined
that the current workforce is not sustainable. This will be part of the process of reviving the
company and increasing its revenues, improving process efficiencies, and taking advantage of
new opportunities and best practices in the industry. Effectively, some of you may be called
upon by the Human Resource Manager in the coming days to discuss this process and what it
may mean to you and as an individual. In the meantime, the company would like to urge all of
you to remain calm and cease from all manner of rumors concerning the process. In case of any
information, feel free to conduct the HR's office.
The company continues to appreciate the input of each one of you.
Chief Executive Officer
