Looking for sample business emails to improve my writing skills.
The resources I found are typically for writing to clients or customers. I am looking for sample emails that one writes mostly internally within their own company.
For example an email one would write to make a suggestion, disagree with something, ask for status, share an idea, remind someone politely, coach someone etc (Common business scenarios). Not looking for emails to win business or sell anything.
Would appreciate if you could share web links or books (preferably the ones available at amazon.com). Also, I would like examples and not a resource that just gives guidance. posted by r2d2 at 4:01 PM - 0 answers
UHC looks pretty interesting as a company. But I am having trouble grasping what the company does in reality (aside for all the marketing material on the website) and what is the REAL mission of this company.
UHC is apparently an alliance of university medical center and affiliated hospitals
website is www.uhc.edu
Anyone in the know? or able to decode what is it they do? what is their role in the industry, .where they stand..etc. posted by kirikara at 2:24 PM - 1 answers
Stackoverflow has been great for back-end developers, but not so much for the front-end people -

Corporate has just handed down a large change to our T&E policy that involves us submitting original unredacted copies of credit card bills and/or applying for a company credit card that we need to pay ourselves. This seems really out of line but I don't know how to respond. Slight snowfall to follow... [more inside]posted by anonymous at 10:31 AM - 21 answers
How do I represent the fact that my team and I experience time-crunches caused by late submissions of documents to us on a spreadsheet showing the amount of work required of myself and my team for the coming year? [more inside]posted by LN at 8:11 AM - 10 answers
I work at an airfare company as a junior mobile developer. My best friend and I are thinking of starting a new company and we are considering making it an iOS development company. I already have some good app ideas that I could implement within a short period of time. She already has a corporation on file that she paid a good sum of money for.
My biggest pitfall is hiring a designer. I can do the development and I feel that marketing would not be a weak point of this endeavor, however the design is where the problem lies.
How feasible is it to start an iOS development company? How much money would we need? Does it make sense to do so? Are there any good resources available for us, including monetary? posted by antgly at 7:42 AM - 9 answers

Is there a classification of (HR-speak) discrimination when a male employee defers to female coworkers chivalrously (e.g. holding doors open)? Because the activity is solely based on gender, it seems like this would be the case, but it is not addressed as an example in our policies.

I own stock in two companies. One set I inherited, the other I bought because I follow the industry and gambled on my insight. Now they're both at 52-week highs, with a 30% return on the former (as of the day I inherited it, at least) and a 100% return on the latter. The portfolio worth is about to hit $10K. The problem is that I have no idea what I'm doing
and I have no idea when or if I should cash out. Everyone I know who has investments has them in index funds managed by someone else. I don't know any professional traders or hobby investors. I do not have the time to learn finance, and I can't imagine a decent financial adviser would be a worthwhile investment considering the portfolio worth. What to do?

Calling all internationally mobile, 'creative-class' freelancers- how do you determine who taxes you, if your design clients are in one country (for me, USA) you live in another country (Germany) but are a citizen of yet somewhere else (Canadian)?

Some time ago, I came across a paper analyzing the predictions or theories of a number of economists relating to the recent economic troubles. The paper was very detailed (I didn't finish it) but the gist was that every single theory or prediction analyzed was wrong. Anyone know what I'm talking about and where I might find it?

Either Google is playing dumb or I don't know what to search for, but I'm coming up with nothing. Where can I find (or easily populate) a map of the locality pay areas
as defined by the U.S. Government? Bonus if they're somehow shaded on a scale reflecting the locality payment (% increase from "base salaries"). posted by psoas at 12:25 PM - 2 answers

My question is in regards to making sure I get paid for my work. I'll be billing private individuals as opposed to companies and thus am concerned there will be less incentive for them to pay for services rendered. [more inside]posted by Dr. Lurker at 9:40 AM - 17 answers
