What exactly is an info update today anyway? It is simply a communication from a business to its staff, either inform them of any recent developments or announcing changes to the business as a whole. In some cases, employers use the term also when updating employees on any changes in their personal lives such as whether they are able to take Prozac now or not. There are even companies who use it when describing a period during which a company has significantly expanded and thus requiring more frequent communications between the company and its workforce.
Info update today is usually sent out either by email or text message. When sending it, the company usually includes a brief overview of the subject matter, some personal information about the person to whom the message is being sent, and a couple sentences that summarize the major points of what was discussed in the body of the message. The subject line is used to catch your attention and the content of the message is to inform the recipient what it is that he or she will be getting from your company. It is intended to inform the employees that something has changed internally at your organization (i.e. that there have been changes to the company’s business strategy or that a specific person is now in charge of certain aspects of the business).
One thing to keep in mind in using the term “info update” is that the term should not be abused by both the employees to whom the message is being sent and by the management to which it is sent. The latter should always attempt to be more open and honest than the former so as to avoid inaccurate or unnecessary communication. This is especially important in situations where the change may be based on personal decisions rather than corporate ones. In those cases, the only reason for the info update would be to simply notify employees of any changes that may be taking place within the business. If the reason behind sending one is to inform employees of a change affecting the business, then this could be done in the form of an internal newsletter, staff meeting or through a company newsletter. There should never be an attempt to “spruce up” any company during this type of period.
