A report is structured with multiple sections – executive summary, introduction, body, methodology, findings, conclusion, and recommendations. The conclusion or recommendation may be presented together under the same section or separately. However, its key to note that they serve different purposes.
The point of a conclusion is to summarize key findings from the research and key elements of the discussion. It should help highlight the value of the work and the applicability of the findings. It can also include all the limitations that may be present in the design of the research or the focus group. It can also offer recommendations to improve the design of the work for more accurate results (Davis, 2021).
In contrast, a recommendation section of the report is included to make a proposal or recommend the best alternative to solve a problem. It can be done by comparing the alternatives by discussing its pros and cons and assessing the risks involved. The goal of the report is to state the facts and clarify the options available to resolve any issue (Davis, 2021).
Based on the above findings, research reports that employees display higher work productivity by 31% and report improved work satisfaction by 40%, when they have an option to work from home as needed.
With these significant numbers, it can be concluded that offering a flexible work schedule for the department will help increase our retention and boost employee morale. This step will establish among our employees that the company cares for their work-life balance and respects personal life as well.
