Subject: Draft to Professor Tan Hwee Lee
Here is the draft you requested.
Subject: email@example.comDear Prof. Tan,
We have given careful consideration to your request for assistance in your project. We are glad to have the opportunity to participate in your study. However, for now we are not in the best condition to accommodate to your request. Eight months ago, Soundtrex underwent a major restructuring exercise that resulted in negative impacts on our employees’ morale. Measures implemented were extensive cost-cutting measures as well as retrenchment of non-productive staffs. Strict controls were imposed on employment benefits such as travel allowances, vacation privileges and bonuses. Furthermore, there were pay cuts, zero bonuses, and cuts in budget for operating expenses. Our employees were stressed out and application for sick leaves went up by a big margin. At the moment, we are still in the transition phase and we feel that the nature of the study could potentially cause our employees to feel that they had been treated unfairly by our company. We would wish to avoid risking our employees to return to the previous mentality. Besides that, with the current situation on hand, we feel that the data submitted by our employees would not be representative of the employees in the entertainment industry.
Nevertheless, we would be available to accommodate to your request in 6 months’ time. We apologize for not being able to meet your submission deadline. We hope that you could understand our concern. We look forward to cooperate with you.
