Management 306

Layoffs (Example 4)


To: My Software System Associates
From: Jessica La Madrid, CEO
Date: November 1, 2016
Subject: Company Mission Changes

First and foremost, I want to thank each and every associate at My Software Systems, you have been an essential part of this company and without your hard-work and dedication, our business would not be where it is at today. I have had the pleasure of working along-side some of our most extraordinary employees in the company and our focus has always been to offer success. As you know, we have been trying our best to steer through the downturn that has affected our economy and our business. With that, our company will be going through some changes.

For the past two years, we have been experiencing declining sales at My Software Systems due to AccountSoft software. This software no longer fits with the changes that our company will be going through. As a result, AccountSoft will be acquired by Accounting Support Services Inc. to reduce costs and alter resources to our financial software systems.

Unfortunately, we had been hoping that during this difficult period of new changes we could keep all of our employees. However, this is not the case. For those who are working within the sales and marketing department you will be laid off. It is my regret, that we must inform you that we will be unable to utilize your services after December 1, 2016. Here at My Software Systems, we have been pleased with the qualities you have exhibited during your employment, and we will be sorry to lose you as an employee of the company. We will be offering you Bea Insurance, a severance package and unemployed benefits during this difficult transition time.

Later today, My Software Systems will be having an open conference in the Core Auditorium at 5:00pm to answer all and any questions that you may have. We will also be discussing in detail the next few changes that our company will have.

If your question was not answered or if you need time for personal reasons, please set up and individual meeting at the Human Resource Department or call 909-555-5555.

Here at My Software Systems, please accept our best wishes for your future.
