    主持人:Maggie 黃蔚兒、譚永暉

    1.            Do you know people like that in the office -

    ○           刷鞋仔: Apple polisher / yes man

                    There are also colleagues who just can’t say no.

    ○           People may take advantage of you if you are too nice.

     

    2.            Instead of saying “no”, what can we say? (useful on emails as well)

    ○           I regret to inform you…(that we cannot accommodate 遷就/容納 your request)

    ○           I am afraid I cannot…(offer you a refund on this product)

    ○           Unfortunately, due to circumstances, we cannot …(deliver the product to you on time)

     

    3.            Sometimes, it’s not good to just say ‘no!’ Instead you can give them alternatives:

    ●           I am sorry that hasn’t worked out, what we can do is…(offer you compensation 補償)

    ●           I can understand your point of view, how about we do this instead.

    ●           You’ve made some valid 有效 points, perhaps we can compromise 妥協 and…….

    (The security system has been compromised. 保安系統已被破壞)

    ●           I agree with you, but can we add…(more staff to help out at the event)

     

    4.            How to politely chase someone for their work

    ●           Is there any chance that you can get it done sooner?

    ●           Where are you on this project?

    ●           I don’t mean to rush you but the client has been chasing me. 唔洗急最緊要快 (chase - 追趕)

    ●           I would just like to follow up on the progress. (US and UK pronunciation)

     

    5.            Different work personality types.

    ●           The Driver; data and results-minded person. Someone who is decisive 決定性,focused and wants to try new things.

    Work-life balance

     

    Westernized companies might have a better emphasis on work-life balance.

    ●       They would allow flextime 自由工作時間.  You can choose your work hours.

    ●       WFH.

    ○        I think because of Covid and technology, it has changed the way we work and has allowed us, the employees, to spend more time at home.

    ■        A lot of big companies are downsizing  (downsize - (使)減員) their offices.

    ■        A lot of companies offer a hybrid model 混合模式 of working from home 1-2 days and then at the office for the rest of the week.

    ●       Countries such as the UK, Belgium, and many Scandinavian countries (Denmark, Norway and Sweden, etc.) are implementing 實施 a 4-day work week.

    ●       New World HK has also implemented a 4.5 half-day work week.

     

    Studies show that working longer hours doesn’t make you more productive. 

    ●       The ideal number of hours you should work per week is 38-hours according to Denmark, consistently one of the happiest countries in the world. Studies have also shown you should take 6 weeks off per year to obtain optimal 最佳 happiness.
