Employee Suggestion for Company Meeting - It can sometimes be a daunting task addressing a superior, even with a simple suggestion of
meeting to address a problematic issue.
The good news is this template can take some of the anxiety associated with being the one to make the suggestion of a meet and discuss, off your shoulders.
Although this template speaks specifically to an issue of two companies merging it is easily adaptable to whatever message you need to address.
More importantly than the subject of this template, the form brings attention to the discomfort of several employees and provides a suggestion to rectify the issue in a professional manner.
There is such a high degree of anxiety about the proposed merger with ___[name of firm]___ that I can see the effects in my department daily. I do not feel that the newsletter put out last week helped assuage the fears of the other employees.
I believe that it might be beneficial to meet the issue head-on by holding a meeting wherein questions can be put forth and answers can be provided.
There is a schism between employees and management that appears to be growing and presents a potential problem. If, for example, this merger fails to materialize, the employees may maintain their current feelings of alienation to the detriment of the organization.
I know that there are many inherent problems in hashing this subject out in an open forum and these must be weighed against the present alternative. I do feel, however, that the suggestion is worth some consideration.
