Memorandum (Memo)
Short for “memorandum,” a memo is a type of document used to communicate with others in the
same organization.
Unlike an email, a memo is a message you send to a large group of employees, like your entire
department or everyone at the company. You might need to write a memo to inform staff of
upcoming events, or broadcast internal changes
The format of a memo is much simpler. You write “Memo” or “Memorandum” at the top,
followed by a To line, a From line, a Date line, a Subject line, and then the actual body of the
message.
