Question No.1 (10)
You are working as a Manager in an organization which is strongly against Vacations. You have noticed that continuous working has made you and all your colleagues lifeless, mechanical and dull. Write a proposal to the Director and try to convince him that how a couple of holidays will turn the workers energetic, enthusiastic, creative and sincere to work.

First of all, on behalf of all the employees including myself, I’d like to congratulate you
on your increment in the yearly allowances.It is surely a joyful moment for you. At that
occasion I’d also like to draw your attention towards a majorly growing issue in our
organization. Coming straight to the point, I’d like to put in front of you some figures
which I suppose you’d surely be aware of. For the past couple of years, our company is
not actually meeting its goals the way it should be. See in 2010, our profit was about
1500$ million which at the end of 2011 got down to 1200$, talking further about it, at the
mid of 2012 our revenue was 10000$ and at the end of the year 2012 we as a company,
only managed to earn about 9000$.
Now that is not just a normal thing to be considered. As a manager, you , yourself has
mentioned in a last week’s meeting thatthe continuous loss has to be rectified. As you
have asked for suggestions in that matter, here I am with one.I am observing a certain
type of irritation and boringness in our staff for a couple of years now. The reason
behind this is that the employeesare unable to get relaxed and some time to hang out
with their families and friends due to our company’s policy , according which an
employee is allowed almost no vacations apart from the Sundays. There’s no doubt that
our company is one the best payers when it comes to the salary. But the point is even a
best mind needs some rest sometimes.
It is not just the bundle of currency notes you get at the end of each month, it is also a
feeling of relief that in case of any emergency, or to relax, the company would grantyou
some days off, which unfortunately our company does not. So in my view, there has to be
a change in the employee’s leave plan. As the saying goes, a restless work is often short
of quality. So, I am sure the employees would be more than happy and willfully put their
bestefforts in their working hours after they are being provided with some more leaves in
a calendar year.
Thank you and looking forward to hear positively from you regarding this matter.
