Recommendations in a report should be written using business English, come at the end of the report and be feasible for the company culture. Recommendations should also be clearly outlined, easy to read and numbered.
When problem solving, it is best to write recommendations that not only solve the symptoms of the problem but solve the root of the problem as well. For example, if a company receives a customer complaint, the recommendation should address why the complaint was received, how to handle it and ways to prevent it from happening in the future.
To write a report with recommendations outlining cost issues, it is usually best to outline how best to save the company money both short term and long term. Expenditures and profits should be thoroughly outlined.
Recommendations can be written for a variety of business needs and concerns. Employee training, marketing, budgeting and customer interactions all benefit from recommendations. Recommendations usually have an introductory statement and follow the conclusion of a report. The grammar used in a recommendation should be parallel, meaning the same grammar should be used throughout the report. This makes it easy for the reader to follow along without putting too much thought into what is being read. A strong recommendation is one that is woven tightly together using similar words.
