(A Mosaic Case-Study): Content of and Standards for Annual ReportsScenario:The Communications Department at Mosaic, Ltd. is getting ready to produce the organizations annual report that will be distributed to all investors and stockholders. Yvonne, who normally oversees the production and printing of this high-end report, is doing some reconnaissance work abroad. As a result, she passed the torch to complete this project to Sarah and Demetri, since they are responsible for Mosaics physical stores and online communications.. For the past week, Sarah and Demetri have been frantic and on everyones case. They know not only how important the annual report is to the image of the organization, but also the detrimental effect it could have on their jobs if Yvonne finds out they did a poor job.Today while taking a coffee break, Sarah says to Demetri, Im not sure about the content of an annual report. Ive seen them before, but Yvonne usually handles organizing it all. Im not exactly sure what even needs to be included.. I have a general idea about content, said Demetri, but Im not positive about how to arrange the visuals and lay out the report in a way that will really mean something to shareholders.Trey, who was also in the break room and overhead their conversation, suggests to them, Why dont you just research Mosaics past annual reports, as well as reports from similar competitors to become more comfortable with the look and conventions of the document?. Thats a great idea, Trey, said Sarah and Demetri almost simultaneously. Ill have Martina get right on that! said Sarah.Martina the intern, who coincidentally walked into the break room just then eating a banana and minding her own business, suddenly found herself as a key player in the production of Mosaics annual report.Instructs:Take on the communication task of Martina. Research five annual reports of other major corporations as Sarah and Demetri have asked.When you are finished, explain in this discussion thread what sections are typically included in these organizations annual reports and possible reasons for including them.. In addition, try to figure out how authors of annual reports have incorporated visual displays and other pictures into the reports and how the visuals help to convey information to the audience of the report.
