As members of the marketing department, we have been given the task of writing the new company brochure. The purpose of this brochure is to appeal to potential employees. The brochure should present this company as a great place to work.

I think we should begin by listing all of the most attractive qualities of our company. We shouldn't be considering just the basic qualities, like good benefits and competitive salaries. Many other companies have these qualities; we need something that makes us unique or different from them.

However, we must limit the list, since we can't include everything. Therefore, I've asked the human resources department to assist us by giving us a list of the few truly unique characteristics that they think the brochure ought to stress.

After doing some brainstorming myself, I've come up with the following characteristics: job security, stock options for employees, physical fitness centers on site, and open communication. Do a little brainstorming yourself, and after thinking about all the appealing qualities of our company, please email a limited list to me.

See you at the meeting this afternoon,
Arthur
