What is your organization’s official policy on communication?
What really occurs?
How does the leadership at the top see the importance of organizational communication, and why?
What are the organizational leader’s thoughts on inclusion of employees in decision making?

As an appendix, include the following:
an example of a downward communication explaining the institution of merit-based pay for employees.
an example of a downward communication explaining the need for an immediate reduction in force.
These should be professional business memoranda, and should include your organization’s logo.
