Appendix 1: Report preparation and writing policy
Ethical Trading Group staff and managers in our organisation may have many occasions where they need to write reports to disseminate information to internal and external stakeholders. Some examples include sales reports, business cases, compliance reports and project status reports. Reports range from short informal or semi-formal reports to longer formal reports. The format is determined by the purpose of the report, the amount of detail required, and the audience for whom it is intended. Your department may have templates for the common types of reports that the department prepares for stakeholders.
The aim of this fact sheet is to assist staff to prepare and produce reports which are clear, consistent and meet the needs of stakeholders. You should always seek to adapt the content, tone and language of your documents to the situation (context) and intended audience of your communication.
When beginning to write you need to consider:
Who are you writing to?
What is the primary purpose of your document?
Why should the reader care about your message?
When and where does the action take place?
What are your expected outcomes?
In our organisation, the information provided in reports should be easy to find and written in a way that the stakeholder can understand it. This is one reason why we divide reports into sections clearly labelled with headings and sub-headings. Technical information which would clutter the body of the report is placed in the appendix. In order to produce a high-quality report, it is essential to include accurate, relevant and up-to-date information collected from a wide variety of sources.
A good report:
makes the purpose of the report very clear in the introduction
presents information that is both sufficient and accurate
has headings and subheadings that are clear and uses a format that is appropriate to the
eport type
summarises all sections of the report in the executive summary
states recommended actions in clear concise statements and justifies these in relation to
the findings of the report
uses language appropriate to the relationship between the writer and the reader.
Reports for decision-making
Some reports, for example business cases or project proposals, provide information about an issue or idea which requires funding or a decision by more senior management. Your proposal should outline the costs and benefits of the project or idea clearly and succinctly. Ensure it contains sufficient detail to satisfy management
