Subject: Free Writing Skills Workshop
As many of you are aware, we recently had a small incident with one of the signs in our restaurant window. Never having eaten spilt pea soup or carrot-brain muffins, many of our customers were understandably curious and we received many questions and comments about these unusual offerings. In an effort to ensure that future customers only order real food, we are excited to offer all employees the opportunity to partake in a six-week fundamental writing skills workshop.
Writing skills are highly valued by employers, and they are something that we look for in management here at HotDam Soup! Taking advantage of this FREE workshop would be a great way to build your resume, and develop the critical communication skills that will get you noticed. To teach the workshop, we have hired local legend Dr. Will Writewell, who is currently a professor over at Treleaven Community College. Not only is Dr. Writewell known for his book, The Writewell Way: Write Well, Do Well, but he also has a reputation for being an effusive and engaging teacher who is able to bring out the best in his students. Don't lose out on personalized attention and guidance from this amazing teacher and writer who will help bring your writing skills to a whole new level!
To make it a little more interesting, employees will also receive free lunch and a raffle ticket for every workshop class that they attend. Thus, the more classes you attend, the more chances you have to win. Plus, all employees who complete at least half of the workshop classes will have the chance to make a suggestion and then vote on the big raffle prize. So sign up and try to win that Swedish massage or deep fryer you've always wanted!
Sign up sheets will be available on the kitchen bulletin board starting next week. Classes will start the week after that. There will be one class offered per week, but it will be offered on both Wednesday and Thursday to accommodate employees' differing schedules. So, if you show up on Wednesday, February 12th, you can skip Thursday, February 13th, and vice versa. Each class will last for 1.5 hours, from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm, so as to take advantage of the lull between lunch and dinner.
We don't want to be known as a restaurant with poor 'pubic' relations (if you catch my meaning), so sign up for the workshop, develop your skills, and possibly win a prize! We hope to see you all there!
