Ladies and gentlemen, do you remember the first day you walked into this company with no sense of direction or no one to talk to as you go about your duties. Am sure it was a challenging experience especially on the first few days. Let me divert your mind to something compassionate, remember the day you welcomed your daughter, son, niece or nephew into this chaos world where children’s safety is not guarantee due to sickness, terrorism, child trafficking, toxic chemicals and unsafe behaviors practice by other children in the locality (Satterthwaite, 2014). Am sure you felt the urge, responsibility and the duty to protect the baby by all means necessary from any harm. Additionally, you were ready to provide any form of assistance in terms resources, good company and skills to make sure the baby grow into a responsible citizen. You were there to witness every stride the child makes in life and correct them where they went wrong or provide them with necessary training they need to avoid making the same mistakes in the future.
Thus, base on the same note, the company saw it necessary to have our own “baby shower”. This is whereby we welcome our new colleagues into company’s family which has been growing from our founding fathers of the company to where we are at the moment. This is a big family which has been in existence for the last two decades. Thus, it is our responsibility to look after each other especially our “new born”. We must provide a Conducive environment for them thrive and reach their goals both professional and personal (Covin et al., 2014). This can only be achieved if we continue to work as a team, give assistance where possible and share the resources at our disposal adequately. However, all families have conflicts; this is something we cannot avoid in life since we have different thinking capacity, perspective on things and different background. Thus, having a different opinion on things should not be viewed as plot to derail the unity of this wonderful family but a way to strength it and giving it variety of options on how it can navigate through the challenges it may be facing at a particular time. Hence, we must remain united despite the differences and disputes we may be having because we have clients to serve and meet their needs. Our unity is what will give us an edge over our competitors in the market. Thus, it is paramount we keep our family together, look on ways we can improve our performance in the market and improve our image (Chandrasekar, 2011). This will enable us as a company to achieve our goals/objective as we move into accomplishing our desired mission and vision as united family
Therefore, I know you are all curious to know who is our new born. Some of you are wondering are we having boy or girl. Others are already thinking of names or gifts they can give to our new born. While others are wishing that the new born will be attached to their department to neutralize the work pressure and work load. Thus, today is a special day for the company as we welcome a new colleague to our company’s family. His name is Mr. Benson Kali, accountant by professional. He holds PhD in accountant and masters in strategic management. He has 30 years working experience in different companies in different capacities. I wish to state that it was not easy to convince Mr. Benson to leave his private firm and come to work for this company. However, the reputation and the history of the company is what attracted Mr. Benson. It is not salary since he earns more from his private company than what he will be earning in this company. It is the image and the work ethics of the company which attracted Mr. Benson to this company.
This is a blessing to our company. Don’t you agree children are a blessing to the society? As you all aware the company has been grappling on how to management its funds and resources. The company has been making losses in the last few months due to mismanagement of resources, poor planning, poor prediction of markets trends and unreliable strategies when it comes to financial aspect of our company. These problems started immediately when Jerry our former chief accountant and strategic manager left the company due to retirement. Jerry had been working for the company since it started as junior accountant. He rose through the rank to his last position. The company has not been able to find a suitable person within the company to fit the big gap left by Jerry. Our entertainment market is very dynamic, the strategies we were using last month, there is high possibility they may not work today. This is because our customers’ preferences for entailment keep changing depending on the changes in their lifestyle, income, age and the society in which they live (Yakıcı et al., 2012). Additionally, we have a variety of competitors in the market both direct and indirect. Our competitors are busy looking for strategies and form of entertainment to introduce into the market to attract customers to their products. Due to this, we need someone who understands the entertainment market as well financial aspect. These qualities are found in Mr. Benson. He had worked for capital entertainment for 15 years as chief accountant before leaving the company to start his financial and entertainment consulting firm here in the city. In last one month you have noticed a positive shift on the profit margin and adequate utilization and accessibility of resources. This was the work of Mr. Benson. He has been working for the company for the last one month as a consultant but the company’s management managed to convince Mr. Benson to join us. Thus, I believe we shall work together in harmony and give Mr. Benson all the support he may need. Thank you.
