March 25, 2008 To: Jerome Carmody, Chairman of Funds Operations From: Cara Brown, Vice President Subject: A proposal to change draft memo regarding recent weather crisis Our company successfully provides around the clock financial services to all of our clients. Even with the recent weather crisis, 30 % of our employees managed to come to the office, when other businesses around us were completely shut down. In response to your recent memo draft to all employees, I believe there is a better way to approach this sensitive situation. The weather circumstances can be difficult and frustrating at times, but I believe some of the statements in the memo were too harsh. I understand that you were, “disappointed not to see more employees at work,” but local authorities urged people to stay at home rather than travel to work. Safety is our number one issue and this statement contradicts that greatly.

Unformatted text preview: Authorities also urged “nonessential personnel” to stay off the roads. Our industry is important but not classified as essential. Monday morning a revised memo should be sent out to all employees. I do agree and support your efforts to develop a crisis services team to help facilitate the needs and concerns of our employees in the case that another weather event should occur. I think that this is a positive idea that many employees will take advantage of. Thank you for your concern regarding employees’ lack of attendance during a storm. I understand your good intentions to keep the company up and running even in a time of crisis. However, I believe that these few changes will get the results you are looking for without offending any employees. Thanks for your cooperation and feel free to stop by my office if you would like to talk about these changes....
