Write a brief memo to your employees. In the memo, explain why business etiquette is important to
employees’ individual careers as well as the company’s overall success.
This assignment serves three purposes:
It is an opportunity to apply the rhetorical concepts we’ve discussed so far in class
It asks you to practice those course concepts within the most common medium for
workplace communication (i.e. memos, e-mails, letters)
It encourages you to begin studying your own writing for criteria like style, tone,
effectiveness, and the audience-centered approach
