(1) Your department’s budget should always include a minimum of $1,000 to spend on training employees. You will, of course, need to explain why training is essential and consider the nature of your business and the technical and/or managerial skills your employees need.
(2) Your department’s current structure is too decentralized and you are proposing a new, more centralized, hierarchical structure. Of course, you will need to include why this is a better structure. Consider the size of your organization, its mission, etc. and consider whether you could argue that changes in the organization warrant the modified structure.
(3) Arguing that every employee in your company should be required to take at least one vacation day each quarter and be precluded from checking email or calling in for messages on that day. In essence, all employees should be required to have one paid “retreat” day each quarter. You may consider citing evidence from EI 2.0 or other managerial studies to demonstrate that this time off is extremely important – and explain how it will connect to better productivity.
