    1) Opening
a. To: All the Staff Members and Employees of Data Solutions
. From: The CEO of Data Solutions
c. Date: ____________
d. Subject: Business Communication Issues
2) Background and Objectives
a. Specific purpose
It has come to our attention that there has been rise in the number of issues largely due to ineffective professional communication among employees in our organization. After considering extensive feedback from our employees from different departments, we at Data Solutions would like to emphasize upon the importance of internal communication for organization future.
. General purpose

3) Context
Internal communication is the transfer of information between employees of all levels and parts of an organization. Communication skill whether written or in ve

It is these neglected areas like writing unprofessional emails due to paucity of time or not communicating well with different concerned departments at other location or not propagating decisions within team members, which have the potential to undo all the labour or hard work done in our job.
Considering such an importance of internal communication in an organization success, it has become necessary for our employees to acknowledge this problem and take necessary guard to prevent...
