In April of 2017, the company decided to cease its service of allowing videos to be posted by users for the Internet public in general to view. Due to intense competition from sites like YouTube, Hulu, and Vimeo, Yippieâ€™s user base for its streaming video service has declined steadily and shows no prospect of rebounding.
Currently, 18 people work full time in Yippieâ€™s video streaming department, which will be eliminated. Yippie is committed to do everything possible to find positions for these 18 employees with Yippeeâ€™s other departments and the company will stop hiring external people so that these employees can be used to fill any spots than open in other departments in the near future. However, it is clear that some of the 18 employees will have to be let go. For those people, Yippie will be offering offering job placement assistance and a generous severance package.
Please draft an email memorandum that will be sent to all 18 of Yippieâ€™s video streaming department employees to let them know the bad news and to give them the essentials of this information. Please try to make the email sound as nice and calming as possible without leaving out any essential information.
Your email should be roughly 300-600 words long. You may make up any reasonable facts and circumstances that you believe necessary to complete this assignment.
