A circular is essentially a letter containing some important information that is distributed to a large number of people. Say for example you have to invite an entire department for a meeting, or update the dress policy for the whole office – a circular will be the best mode of communication for these purposes.

Additionally, circulars also find use as advertising tools. They can contain marketing information and have a wide distribution range.

A Sample of a Circular

Let us see how circulars effectively communicate information in an inter-office situation. The following is a sample circular to inform employees about the revised working hours of the company.

Circular No. ____

25th October 2018

Revised Working Hours

All Employees of XYZ Company,

This is to inform all employees there will be a change in the working hours of the organization effective immediately. As you know we now do not function on any Saturdays since last month. So we only have 5 working days in a week, a revision in the working hours was necessary to ensure the quality of work does not suffer. Hence one hour will be added to the previous 9 hour work days. The revised working hour will be as follows:

  • Working Days: Monday to Friday (except holidays)
  • Working Hours: 8:30 am to 6:30 pm (These hours will include the one-hour lunch break)

All employees are requested to note these new and revised timings. The timings are effective immediately from 26 October 2018. Punctuality and adherence to the new timings are requested. Repeated defaulters will face action. Please contact the HR department or your managers for any queries you may have.

ABC,

CEO of XYZ Company.
