Resource: “Over 30 Workers Trapped After Chilean Copper Mine Collapse” article.
Research additional articles and information about the Chilean mine collapse.
Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper using this and other articles as a resource. Because communications must be designed with the audience in mind, address the following questions within your paper:
- What would be the potential needs of the trapped miners’ families in receiving a message about this incident?
- What would be the potential needs of the rest of the company’s employees when receiving a message about their trapped coworkers?
- What actions must you take before and after the message is delivered to ensure that it was received as intended?
Within the paper, include two communication drafts as if they are from the President of the mining company announcing the accident, using what you have learned about audience and effective messages. One communication draft should be directed to the families of the trapped miners and the other should be an internal update to the company’s employees. For both, identify the most appropriate channel—face-to-face, e-mail, video, memo, and so on.
The two communication drafts can be included in the middle or end of the paper and are included in the 700- to 1,050-word requirement.
