Recently there have been whispers from employees within the company that there is talk of a merger that may occur. As the CEO of Right Way you are concerned about what your employees are hearing.
Right Way is a home health agency that caters to the elderly population within the community. The company offers a variety of services that one might find in an assisted living facility but allows the patient to stay in the comfort of their own home.
The rumors started several months ago when a new company came into the area. While they are new to the area the company is definitely not new to the world of home health care. There have been talks that this company, Always Right, plans on merging with Right Way.
Due to your leadership training and the company’s open communication policy, you decide to hold a meeting. This meeting will occur at the end of the week and all employees with the company will be invited to the event. At the event the merger details will be discussed since they have recently been agreed upon by both sides.
For this assignment, you will create the memo that announces the merger, what to expect and that questions and concerns will be answered at the meeting, which is scheduled for…………………. The memo will address what is occurring with the merger, how this will allow further expansion into home health care as well as bringing on other services for patients, along with what employees should expect with employment. Human services options are often needed with elderly patients and this merger will allow that to occur. Please also be sure to include in the memo what plans will come from the merger (expansion of facility, more programs or services offered, layoffs or pay raises, more employment opportunities, etc.) The memo will need to be professionally done and no longer than one page – I would suggest using single spacing and looking up a memo template in Word.
- Please remember to include a title page, reference page and rubric in the assignment. Must meet HSA guidelines – should be in Times New Roman or Arial 12-point font and should be the same title page as used throughout the program and as in an example in the course.
- Please make sure to follow HSA Style Guidelines for formatting the paper including a running head.
- Please note that word count DOES NOT include the title page or the rubric. Only the written content of the paper qualifies for meeting the word count requirement.
