To: The Staff
From: Eddie Bauer, President
Subject: Office Supplies
Date: June 30

As you know, the recent recession has forced us to cut costs in many areas. One area where people have not been fully cooperating is in regard to office supplies. For this reason the following guidelines are being put in place:

  1. Dave Smith has been designated as in charge of all supplies. All supplies must be checked through him with your Signature and his before they are removed from the storeroom.
  2. There are monthly limits to how much of each item can be borrowed each month. Anything exceeding these amounts must be approved by your manager and Dave Smith, and the justification must be given in writing.

Along with these guidelines, Here are some additional suggestions with regard to conservation of these materials:

  1. Hang on to your pens! We go through far too many pens in this office. This can only be because people are carelessly losing them.
  2. People should always print on both sides of office paper before recycling. Unless this is for official business correspondence.
  3. Folders and binders can be used again once old projects are completed. The cost of these items adds up!

I appreciate your cooperation, and I hope these measures will lead to an improvement in this area soon.

158. Why has Mr. Bauer written this memo?
159. How do people borrow supplies from now on?
160. What is the exception to the rule that says people must print on both sides of office paper?

Boston, MA 02143

Dear DBX Studio:

I wanted to thank you for your passionate commitment to web design and superior customer service. I develop customer relationship management strategies on a daily basis for my clients and I am NEVER easily impressed with customer service in any industry. In fact, my motto had been that customer service is mediocre at best. I am glad to say that oBX Studio proved me wrong and my web site is clear proof of that!

When I first talked to Douglas, one of your associates, on the phone, I knew he was the right web designer for me even though we had never met or spoken before. I was impressed most with Douglas' commitment to my work and his willingness to educate me about the web design process.

Throughout my experience with DBX Studio I was always very satisfied with prompt and reliable service. Douglas told me that I could reach him at almost anytime. Now this is unheard of, and it is a great example of the kind of personal customer service today's businesses should strive for. I remember times when Douglas told me he would be working until 1 am or so on my web site to meet our deadlines. And sure enough, I would receive emails the next morning that were received anywhere from 1 to 3 am.

Thank you so much for all of your help - the web site looks terrific! I look forward to referring many of my clients to you.

Sincerely,
Scott Hatheaway
President of Speedenix

From : James Ratner

Subject: Meeting to discuss shortage of automobile parts

I am calling a meeting at 3 p.m. tomorrow to discuss the shortage of automobile parts for the upcoming holiday season. Some of you have already mentioned that various components are hard to obtain from the usual sources. We have looked into the matter, and it turns out the main reason we are experiencing difficulty with our usual sources is because our competitor, Fenway Automobiles, has recently offered them a much more lucrative contract. It is important that we obtain the needed items soon, through finding new suppliers. Unless we do so, we may not be able to meet our holiday deadline. As you all know, the demand for new automobiles goes up at the end of the year, and we want to make sure we meet the demand for cars on time.

It is no secret that Fenway Automobiles has been giving us a good run for our money. I believe that this holiday season is our chance to rise above the competition and find a firm, unshakable foothold in the industry.

Therefore, it is crucial that everyone attend this meeting. Also, I would appreciate it if you came with any ideas concerning useful strategies against Fenway Automobiles. If you have any additional questions or suggestions, be sure to contact me or my secretary.

I am sorry but I don't think I will be able to attend the meeting you called this afternoon because I have a doctor's appointment at 2:30. However, I know someone who may be able to get into contact with new suppliers if we should need them. Although these suppliers seem to want a higher price, it will probably be hard to find other suppliers willing to work together so late in the year. I will get back to you after collecting more information.

Bad News for Our Economy

-Experts Forecast a Rapid Recession during Second Half of the Year

April 6th, 2006

Many forecasting experts have announced that they have determined a recession in progress, with its cycle peak estimated to be in October 2006. The recession could be set in motion by a decline in consumer purchasing, since consumers are becoming more sensible about what they buy. A more likely cause would be failure of economic growth. However, these are causes speculated by the public. Andrew Bushee, an expert at Anderson Center at the University of California, outlines three main reasons for the recession visible on the horizon. He lists the recent power crisis, inflation concerns, and significant global trade imbalances. At a press conference last week, he announced that a tight financial budget for the next year will be required to overcome the recession. Top on the list of government priorities, according to this budget plan, should be allocating more time and effort to sectors of the economy which will be most effective in stimulating economic growth and development. According to the econometric model used by certain forecasters, the probability of a looming recession is as high as 90%. So far, a dwindling GDP, hiking unemployment, reduced investment, and job cuts have been predicted.

JOB CUT ANNOUNCEMENT

Due to the recent recession in economy, we are announcing a cut of an additional 500 jobs over the next two years. The job cut will just be a part of our restructuring plan. Losing more than 10 percent or our work force will be an aspect of the plan that is essential in order to reduce costs and become more efficient in our operating margin.

In addition to cutting a number of employees, we ask remaining employees to take salary cuts and trim expenses to the bone. Because the economy is in poor shape now, and our company is suffering as a result, we need more than ever to be in decent financial shape.

Thank you.
