In an organisation, the employees are used to use chat applications
installed on their computers during normal and off working hours. The
managing director has requested the IT manager to restrict their
access to those application to save company?s time and to keep the
staff busy only with their official work.

From a professional management perspective, is there a need for
distributing memo or sending and email explaining the reason behind
this decision? If yes, what should be put on that memo or letter?
There is no answer at this time.

staff have been using the system for non work related Chat and

From now on, please avoid non work related Internet usage during
official working hours.

The jist is to give a hint of a threat, and the suggestion of an
amnesty for the culprits.
