Writing Task 1

Dear Manager,

I am writing this letter to request you to kindly allow me to work at your head office in London for next six months. I am working as a Project Manager at your country office here in Islamabad.

Actually I have to attend a short course of Survey Analysis from London School Of Economics which would be beneficial for my job in forecasting and analysis of price discrimination. I have already received the offer letter from the institute. I don't want to take study leave instead I was hoping if you could allow me to work at your head office in London; that would give me rather an experience of working there too.

While I am away my assistant will take care of my work here and I will be in-touch with him on email and through zoom meeting. I would really appreciate if you could help me with arranging all this. Please give me advice regarding the accommodation options where I could stay in London. Should I book a single bed apartment or request a hostel room from the institute? I want to stay near the head office, so please guide me.

Looking forward for an early response,

Your faithfully,

Haj Suhail

Task 2

You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.

Some businesses find that their new employees lack basic interpersonal skills such as cooperative skills. What are the causes? Suggest possible solutions.

Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience

You should write at least 250 words.

The business sector in recent when hire new staff usually find that they lack interpersonal skills such as how to cooperate with other employee and customers. There are many reasons associated with this. This essay will discuss in detail the causes of this and the possible solutions to these causes.

The newly hired staff lack experience as they are fresh graduates. Coming straight from universities or high schools they don't know how to deal with the customers and get along with other employees. That is why McDonald provides a two weeks training to all its newly hired staff. Secondly the fresh employees do not have the know how of the company's policy and way of business; they totally rely on their instincts. Due to which under pressure they make wrong choices and get frustrated.

Coming to the solutions there are so many ways that can help solve these causes. Firstly by developing the interpersonal skills of the newly hired staff they can be trained and groomed. Through providing training to them their skills can be developed and reformed. Many companies and business are doing that. Secondly by making the employees learn the Standard Operating Procedures and the policy of the company.

Thus now a days business find that freshly hired staff lack interpersonal skills. Lack of experience and know how of business policy are the main causes of that. By providing trainings and teaching the employees the way of the business one can overrule these causes.
