Re : Reimbursement form

Hello Everyone
I have recently noticed that there has been an increase in reimbursement claim forms being handed
in without receipts. Some of you have been adding notes explaining what you are to be reimbursed
for but unfortunately I cannot accept them. The policy is if you do not have a receipt , you will not be
reimbursed for your expense: no exceptions. I have also noticed that not all the forms are being filled
in correctly. Please make sure to fill in your employee numbers as well as the type of purchase. This
will make processing your claim much easier and therefore faster. So please in the future , keep a
hold of your receipts and fill in the form completely.

1. What is the purpose of this memo ?

a. To issue reimbursement form
b. To give receipts back to employess
c. To remind staff to follow procedures
d. To outline a new company policy
2. What should employees do ?
a. Keep all receipts if they want reimbursement
b. Fill out the top half of the reimbursement form
c. Make a copy of their reimbursement forms
d. Process their receipts before handing them in

it has been impossible. His list of demands is unrealistic , and there are no candidates

chat with him and see if you can convince him to lower his expectations and come up with a
more realistic list of qualifications and skills that he wants in his assistant ? I would really
appreciate it as I am really back up in my department and this search is eating through a lot of
my time and energy.
Let me know he says,

Re : New Composting Bins

Hello fellow coworkers as you may noticed all garbage cans have been removed from
offices and common areas and have been replaced by Recycling Centers on each floor. At
each center, there are two blue boxes and one green box. One blue box is for cans,
bottles, and juice boxes. The other blue box is for all Paper products. That brings us to the
green box! To help decrease our garbage output we are starting a new composting
program. Each week the air-tight bins will be collected and turned into compost to give
back to the earth. Unfortunately not all food waste can go in the green bins. For now we
ask that you only throw away fruit vegetables grains. And egg shells. We are working hard
to be a ero-waste facility so we appreciate your cooperation !

hoarding , please return unused and unnecessary parts back to the warehouse.

Subject : upcoming inspection and productivity

Dear Chris,
Please be advised that, due to the upcoming surprise inspection, the floor staff has been
spending extra time cleaning. Because more time is being spent on cleaned up,
productivity has dropped by 1% , and I predict that this will continue until after the
inspection. I believe that for the time being, quotas should be lowered in order to
maintain the exceptional standard of safety that the staff has achieved so far. Once the
inspection is over, we can then ramp uup productivity to the standards we are used to.
