Request E-mail or Memo: Need Information About Awardees
As an assistant in the Human Resources Department of a large corporation, you and your department are preparing to honor outstanding employees at an awards ceremony. Three department managers submitted names of employees they would like to honor. However, you need more information about the employees. The ceremony is scheduled to be given at a banquet on June 15. Your boss asks you to write to the managers asking for more information so that the presenter has something interesting to say about each awardee. The information will also be published in the company print and online newsletters. Arrange a series of questions in a readable, logical list. What would readers like to know about these awardees?
Your Task. Draft a well-organized message or memo to Nicole Masterson, manager, Reprographic Services, asking for more information about awardee Martin Medina, whom she nominated. Prepare the message so that it can be used to write to all three managers with a few changes. Be sure to include an action closing and deadline. Add information if needed.
