Associate Level Material
Read the following e-mails. For each e-mail:
• Describe any content and formatting errors found.
• Determine if the content is appropriate for a workplace setting. If it is, explain why. If not, identify the errors made and rewrite the e-mail, to be appropriate.
|E-mail One |
|To: Tom ...view middle of the document...
|I think that the subject line content is incorrect. The e-mail talks about two employees who are going to be terminated but the |
|subject line states “Talent Reallocation.” I’m not sure it fits with the rest of the e-mail. |
|It appears as if Andrea is a manager writing to another manager Tom. Because it does not give positions, I assume they are both |
|management. The content of this e-mail sounds appropriate for a workplace because managers writing to managers can go by first names.|
|The e-mail does disclose who the employees who will be terminated are, but it does not disclose any other names when it discusses |
|with whom they were judged against. Planning to meet with the individuals individually is a good plan. |
|Rewrite e-mail if necessary |
