ሃይ፥ ስለአንድ ጉዳይ ወደምንወያይበትና ስለጉዳዩ ለማውራት የሚያስፈልገውን ቋንቋ ወደምናቀርብበት የ English Together ዝግጅት እንኳን በደህና መጡ። ሐና እባላለሁ። አብሮኝ/አብራኝ …… አለ/አለች።

Sam
Hi, I’m Sam.

Kee
And I’m Kee. Welcome!

የኤልአንድተናጋሪአቅራቢ
በዚህ ሳምንት ዝግጅታችን ሰዎች በስራቸው ላይ ደስተኛ ስለመሆን እና ያለመሆናቸው እንነጋገራለን። ሁሌም ስለዚህ ጉዳይ የማወቅ ፍላጎት አለኝ፤ በተለይ ደግሞ ከእናንተ ከሁለታችሁ ጋር ስሰራ፤ ስለዚህም መረጃዎችን አገላበጥኩ። According to a recent survey of British adults on behalf of BBC Radio 5 Live ከወንዶችና ከሴቶች በአብዛኛው ቀናት ወደስራ መሄድ እንደሚያስደስታቸው የመናገር ዕድሉ የማን የሚሰፋ ይመስሏችኋል?

መልሱን በኋላ እንነግራችኋለን። Now let’s listen to a BBC Radio 4 news item በስራ ላይ ደስተኛ ስለመሆነ የተከናወነ ውይይት እናዳምጥ።

News insert
Are you happy in your job? That's the question? Do you enjoy going to work? Well, it may surprise you to learn, that most of us do, most of the time. Radio 5 live commissioned a survey from COMRes and that's what they found. According to the survey, nearly 80% of people say that they are proud of their work, and 68% say they enjoying working most days.

Sam
Did you hear that, most people are happy to go to work, it’s surprising – but that’s good news, isn’t it?

Kee 
Well, it’s definitely a surprise! Who are these people? I work to make money, but enjoy it, really?

Sam
You not enjoying something is no surprise, but I’m not sure this report is so surprising, either – we spend so much time at work, we should make sure that we have job satisfaction.

የኤልአንድተናጋሪአቅራቢ
‘Job satisfaction’, በስራ የሚገኝ እርካታ ማለት ነው።

Sam
Yes, that’s right - job satisfaction is how happy you are in your job.

የኤልአንድተናጋሪአቅራቢ
I’ve got good job satisfaction. I love the job I do, what about you guys?

Sam
Yes, this is great – it’s so rewarding being able to make radio programmes.

የኤልአንድተናጋሪአቅራቢ
Yeah, I agree – አንድ ነገር ‘rewarding’ ከሆነ፥ የሚያመረቃ፥ የሚያረካ ነው ማለት ነው።.

Kee
I am happy that you two both feel that your jobs are rewarding….

Sam
Thanks….

የኤልአንድተናጋሪአቅራቢ
But?

Kee
…but, I don’t really feel the same way.  I just never feel that I’m appreciated for what I do.

የኤልአንድተናጋሪአቅራቢ
You don’t feel ‘appreciated’ ተገቢው አትኩሮት የተሰጠህ አልመሰለህም?

Kee
No-one ever says thank you – they never tell us what they think about the programmes, it’s almost like they don’t notice.

Sam
You’re right.  It’s definitely very important to be appreciated at work.

But, I’m just not sure that’s true for us here. Didn’t you hear all those things they said at our last meeting?  We got loads of feedback - I found that really motivating.

የኤልአንድአቅራቢ
አዎ በትክክልም የሚያነቃቃ ‘motivating’ ነበር። ጠንክሬ መስራቴን የበለጠ እንድገፋበትና ከዚህም የተሻሉ ዝግጅቶችን እንዳቀርብ የገፋፋኝ አዎንታዊ ግበረ መልስ ነበር።

Kee
Look, what motivates me is being able to finish my work and go home and forget about it.

የኤልአንድአቅራቢ
እሽ፥ አሁን በአብዛኛውን ቀናት ወደስራ መሄድ እንደሚያስደታቸው የመናገር ዕድላቸው ከፍ ያለው እነማን ናቸው? ወንዶች ወይስ ሴቶች? ብየ ቀደም ሲል ላቀረብኩት ጥያቄ መልሱን ለመናገር ትክክለኛ ጊዜ ነው። መልሱ ሴቶች ናቸው የሚል ነው። የዳሰሳ ጥናቱ 74 በመቶ ያህል ሴቶች በአብዛኛው ቀናት ወደስራ ሲሄዱ ደስ እንደሚላቸው ተናግረዋል ይላል፤ ተመሳሳይ መልስ ያቀረቡት ወንዶች ቁጥር ግን 63 በመቶ ነው። 

Sam
I’m sorry you don’t enjoy coming to work, Kee. It sounds like you’re feeling quite stressed.

የኤልአንድአቅራቢ
Yes, it does. ‘Stressed’ – ውጥረት ውስጥ መግባት ማለት ነው።.

Sam
But there’s no need for you to feel stressed. They said so many positive things about you in the meeting.

Kee
Did they?

Sam
They said so many good things about you! Yes, that you can be moody at times but they also said you’re a team player and you’re a very hard worker.

Kee
Well, I suppose I do work hard.

Sam
Do you feel a little bit more appreciated now?

Kee
Uhm, a little. Look, let’s get back to work, eh?

የኤልአንድተናጋሪአቅራቢ
የተሻለ ስሜት ስለተሰማህ ደስ ብሎኛል፥ ኪ።

እርስዎስ? ስራዎ ምን ያህል ደስተኛ ያደርግዎታል? ‘Rewarding’ ነው?ጥሩ የስራ እርካታ አለዎት? ተገቢውን አክብሮት ያገኙ ይመስልዎታል? . . .

እሰኪ ኣሁን ደግሞ የዚህ ሳምንት ዝግጅታችንን አጠናቅቀን ከመሰነባበታችን በፊት፥ ዛሬ ስንነጋገርባቸው የነበሩትን ቃላት እንመልከት፤ ሁሉም ሰዎች በስራ ቦታቸው ከሚሰሟቸው ስሜቶች ጋር የተያያዙ ናቸው። ‘job satisfaction’ በስራ ቦታ ምን ያህል ደስተኛ እንደሆኑ ይገልፃል፤ ‘rewarding’ አንድን ስራ ሰርተው ካጠናቀቁ በኋላ የሚፈጠርብዎት መልካም ስሜት ነው፤ ‘appreciated’ ሌሎች ሰዎች የሰሩትን ስራ ዕውቅና ሲሰጡትና ሲያከበሩት ማለት ሲሆን ‘stressed’ ደግሞ በስራ ጫና ምክንያት መጨነቅ ማለት ነው።

አብረውን ስለቆዩ እናመሰግናለን፤ ለተጨማሪ የ English Together ዝግጅት በሚቀጥለው ሳምንት ይጠብቁን።
