Case Assignment MGT 303

You are an Employee Communications Manager
at a large service firm, such as a bank, or an advertising or consulting firm.
Since it is a large firm, there is considerable diversity in the cultural
makeup of the employees. You will assume this role throughout the Case
Assignments in the course.

Case Assignment

Read the article “Tame the email beast!” by
Garbringer (2008). Create an email in a letter format, to all of your fellow
employees, to announce an email policy that you have just created. You are not
persuading; you are announcing. Specify the response that you want from the
email (e.g., ask the recipients to email a receipt response). Your email must
start with an introduction and end with a conclusion. You must be tactful and
professional. Remember, some of those folks have been around a long time, and
some are beginning their very first jobs.

Then write a second email—a goodwill
email—to your fellow employees thanking them for complying with the policy.

Finally, write a brief summary explaining
why you chose to emphasize these principles in your email and discuss at least
three rules that you used from the article “Tame the email beast!” and why you
wrote your message as you did. In this summary, please discuss your objectives
and how you used the other background readings.

This section of the assignment should
include at least 2 references , properly cited, to articles from the assigned
background materials.

Your assignment will be graded on logical
flow, ease of reading, tone of message, references to articles, understanding
of concepts, and (for that extra special touch) tasteful creativity.

Please choose a suitable policy. Be careful
about cultural sensitivities since this is a large firm with culturally diverse
employees. You will re-visit the policy in Module 4.

Be careful: Remember that emails can be
leaked! If your email appeared on Page 1 of the Wall Street Journal, would you
be proud or embarrassed?

Submit your assignments by the module’s due
date.

Assignment Expectations
1.One email announcing a new policy after
reading the required articles. You may choose a policy that you are familiar
with. However, since you will be making a presentation in Module 4 on this
policy, please be sure to choose one that has a sufficient impact on the
organization. Please use proper English. Sentences must be properly constructed
and free of grammatical and typographical errors. No citations are needed in
the email.
2.One short goodwill email, presumably sent
a few days after the routine email, thanking those who are complying with the
new policies, and encouraging the others to begin doing so. Please use proper
English. Sentences must be properly constructed and free of grammatical and
typographical errors. No citations are needed in the email.
3.A summary explaining which principles and
rules you used when composing both your emails. The explanation should make use
of at least two sources from the required readings, properly cited and
referenced. Your summary should be prepared as an academic essay and contain
appropriate citations and a formal bibliography.

Case General Expectations

In the Case Assignments, students will
assume the role of a Manager in Employee Communications Manager in at a large
service firm, such as a bank, or an advertising or consulting firm. Students
will assume this role throughout the Case Assignments and be challenged with
different scenarios, requiring written and verbal communication.

required unless otherwise stated.

Submit your assignments by the module’s due
date.

Initiating the job search

In the SLPs for this course, you will
assume the role of a currently employed professional wanting to change careers.
Each of the SLPs will focus on different phases of the job search. In each SLP,
you will apply the business communication principles covered in the module.

Search for companies you are interested in
working for, or jobs you are keen on. You may begin your search at an
employment website (such as Monster.com, usajobs.gov, etc.) and find a job
opening that interests you. Save the existing job advertisement for a position
you are interested in.

You will be completing the subsequent SLPs
using this job opening you identified.

Write a generic email, using principles
from routine and goodwill emails, to inquire about your desired position. You
may ask questions related to application procedures, deadlines, references, or
any other detail. The objective of this email is to build rapport with the
company and notify them of your interest, and the possibility you may be submitting
an application later on. Include the actual job advertisement in your
submission. This could be a pdf document, or a link to the advertisement.

Following the email, write an essay
explaining the principles and good practices you followed while creating it.

Submit your assignment by the module’s due
date.

SLP Assignment Expectations

Your email should be professionally
formatted and effectively deliver the message, using concepts covered in the
module. Please use proper English. Sentences must be properly constructed and
