If I am able to do it I will grant there request if I am not I will explain to them why I cant.
Depending on how big the request is Ill speak to the manager to see if this is possible and if so ill arrange for the request to be made, if it is something small I will arrange it myself.
Then I would make sure its in accordance with what we are allowed to do within the company and if its ok then I would make sure that they get their special request 100 percent.
