I would heartily recommend the American Heritage dictionary (third edition)
which is generally available in bulk for around $4.00 each.

Another possibility, which would cost your company a little more, but which
would be of MUCH more value would be a "desk set" such as one which
includes a dictionary, thesaurus, and unually a third book which is either
a book of business quotations or a book of secretarial advice or a guide to
general writing style. These "kits" usually run about $10.

Good luck.
