You are the owner of a small company with 10 employees. You need to send a message to all employees to announce a new holiday and a new requirement for managers to report vacation time for employees.
In no particular order, here are the facts:
April 1 is the company founder’s date of birth.
April 1 is now a company holiday.
The company hopes the ultimate outcome of this extra day of released time will be an increase of morale of the entire workforce.
The company has arranged with a travel agency for them to provide vacation opportunities at reduced prices for company employees.
There is available a brochure from the travel agency in the personnel office, which gives a listing of all the tours that are offered.
It is required that all managers submit reports of employee vacation requests and preferences once each quarter.
