business report

Scenario:
Your company is the largest private employer in your metropolitan area, and the 43,500
employees in your workforce have a tremendous impact on local traffic. A group of city and
county transportation officials recently approached your CEO with a request to explore
ways to reduce this impact. The CEO, Ms. Suarez, has assigned you the task of analyzing
the workforce’s transportation habits and attitudes as a first step towards identifying
potential solutions. She is willing to consider anything from subsidized bus passes to
company -owned shuttle buses to telecommuting, but the decision requires a thorough
understanding of employee transportation needs. Figures 1 – 4 summarize data you have
collected in an employee survey.

Task:
Write a recommendation memo report to your supervisor, Ms. Suarez illustrating the data
you have collected and recommending two ways to solve this problem.
This is a short report; therefore, your report will not include a title page, a table of
contents, or appendices. The visualized data must be within the text (body) of the report;
do not place the data at the end of the report.
Organizational Guidelines:
TO:
Ms. Suarez, CEO
FROM:
Insert Your Name
DATE:
Month Day, Year
SUBJECT:
Workforce Transportation Habits
Begin your report memo with a brief introductory statement outlining the background,
problem/opportunity/purpose, scope, and organization of the report. Refer to your text for
assistance.
In the body of your report, you are required to illustrate each set of data with figures.
Keep in mind this portion of the report requires an appropriate heading, and each of the
four figures requires a reference statement, a caption, and if applicable, a legend. Do not
place the data in a bulleted/numbered list or in a table.
For example:
APPROPRIATE SECTION HEADING
Precede the graph with a reference statement explaining what the graph illustrates. For
example, Figure 1 illustrates the employees’ carpool habits.
Figure 1: Employees’ Carpool Habits
Create the figure. Determine which figure best illustrates the data. Should you use a pie
chart, a bar chart or a line chart? Once you have decided which chart to use, review your
text for format requirements. How large should the chart be? Should the data be an
ascending or descending order? Where should you place the labels? Does the chart require a
legend? Is the visual clear, complete, concise, connected, and compelling (see textbook for
guidelines)?
Note: If you are not familiar with how to create chart using MSWord or importing them from
Excel and embedding them into MSWord, you should consult the Help function in MSWord
or you may also find it useful to review the following webpages:
Immediately following the chart, explain the significance of the data. This is referred to as
the illustration’s caption.
For example, As you can see from Figure 1,….
After all four chart are completed, offer two possible solutions to the problem. Each
solution should be logically derived from the data and each must be adequately explained.
This section of the report also requires an appropriate heading. There should only be two
solutions for the entire report.
For example:
APPROPRIATE SECTION HEADING
Introduce this section of the report with a paragraph previewing your recommendations.
Solution 1: XXX
Explain your solution and why it is a logical option.
Solution 2: XXX
Explain your solution and why it is a logical option.
Close your report with a summary of the key points as they appeared in the report body. Do
not introduce new facts into your closing paragraph. End by inviting Ms. Suarez to contact
you to discuss the report’s recommendations.
