For this assignment I will be: explaining what Tesco does, the scenario I have been put in, and then I will be doing two tables. There are for electronic and non-electronic communication.
Tesco is a supermarket that sells mainly groceries. They have their own catalogue that sells furniture, appliances, mobiles etc. There’s a Tesco pet, car and house insurance linked to their Tesco bank. Members of Tesco Club card are given points for every pound they spend at Tesco. This business has a total of 6,351 stores in 14 different countries. 2,975 of them are situated in the UK.
I am working for Trinity Communications. Tesco, my biggest client has asked me to produce information to train new staff. I would have observed that some staff are unclear about which methods are suitable for different situations at work. My guide will be the two tables explaining the types of electronic and non-electronic communication.
