Hi all,

Which would you choose for formal documentation... we have a little debate at
the office:

Company wide


The Chicago Manual of Style says that "Compounds ending in wide are always closed unless long and cumbersome. The latter are hyphenated before the noun and open after the noun." (bottom of p220)

Hope that helps.
