Memos are usually created by people within a company for either the entire company or specific groups for the purpose of reporting information, announcing policy changes or new policies, giving valuable instruction to groups of people, or delegating responsibility. Memos are a form of communication that can be written on paper or sent as an attachment via e-mail.
