Hello everyone! As most of you may know, there was a sign posted last week with embarrassing grammatical errors. Here at Spaghetti Dinner we pride ourselves with excellence. We are ranked in the top 10 by professional food critics here in Southern California. That means we need excellence all round not just in food and customer service but also intellectually. Our all-around business needs to be at its best. Therefore to prevent future mistakes and ensure this situation doesn't occur again, I am inviting all employees to attend a Fundamental Writing Workshop.
Although the workshop is not required I strongly recommend and encourage all staff to attend. The classes will be a six week fundamental writing skills workshop held here in our facility every Monday and Thursday from 6-8pm starting November 7. If you decide to do this, you only have to attend one class per week in order to work with some of your shifts and daily schedules. I hired a local business communication instructor Dr. Reade with experience in teaching writing skills at Treleaven Community College, she will be facilitating the session. In the six weeks you will learn the fundamentals of writing such as grammar, writing structure, how to communicate to the readers and more.
I am aware that life catches up to us, we are all very busy people and all in need of a little extra money. So for some encouragement to attend the courses, all classes will be free. In fact all sessions will be paid on the clock, so yes you will get paid to attend. Since the same class is being held twice a week, you can only get paid for one session. This is a way to get educated and apply something new while getting paid.
Not only will you get paid to attend these courses but at the end of the workshop if attend five out of 6 classes you will receive a certification of completion. If you receive a certification you will automatically get a raise of 25 cents per hour. In addition you will get 2 paid vacation days (or 16 hours) this month. Also for those who are trying to build their resume, this certification of completion is a great add on. This will show your future employer (or me for future promotion and job position) that your writing is at a professional level.
I encourage all employees to try it out and attend as much as you can. This will not only help you financially but also intellectually. Both will be better in the long run. Not to mention those who receive a certificate will be prioritized on the work schedule. Remember there is always room for improvement. So why not start now. Please get back to me ASAP if you are interested in this opportunity.
