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. That’s good news, isn’t it?

Kee 
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.

ኣቕራቢ ቋንቋ ትግርኛ

‘Job satisfaction’ ናይ ስራሕ ዕግበት ማለት’ዩ።

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

ኣቕራቢ ቋንቋ ትግርኛ
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.

ኣቕራቢ ቋንቋ ትግርኛ
Yeah, I agree – ሓደ ነገር ‘rewarding’ ጻማ ዚርከቦ እንተ ዀይኑ ኣዕጋቢ ይኸውን።

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

Sam
Thanks….

ኣቕራቢ ቋንቋ ትግርኛ
But?

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

ኣቕራቢ ቋንቋ ትግርኛ
You don’t feel ‘appreciated’ ዝተናእደ።

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?  I found that really motivating.

ኣቕራቢ ቋንቋ ትግርኛ
እወ፡ ብሓቂ ‘motivating’ ዘተባብዕ’ዩ ነይሩ። ኣበርቲዐ ክሰርሕን፡ ዝሓሸ መደባት ከዳሉን ዝሓገዘኒ ኣዎንታዊ ግብረመልሲ’ዩ።

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

ኣቕራቢ ቋንቋ ትግርኛ
ኣሃ፡ ሕጂ ምቹእ እዋን ረኺበ ናይቲ ኣቐዲመ ብዛዕባ ኣየኖት’ዮም መብዛሕትኡ እዋን ብስርሖም ሕጉሳት- ደቂ-ኣንስትዮ ወይስ ደቂ-ተባዕትዮ ኢለ ዝሓተትኩዎ ሕቶ መልሲ ክገልጽ።  እቲ መጽናዕታዊ ዳህሳስ ከምዝበሎ፡ 74% ካብተን ደቂ-ኣንስትዮ፡ መብዛሕትኡ መዓልታት ንስርሐን ተሓጕሰን ከም ዝወፍራ ክዛረባ ኸለዋ፡ በወገን ደቂ-ተባዕትዮ ግና 63% ጥራይ ሕጉሳት ምዃኖም ይዛረቡ።

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

ኣቕራቢ ቋንቋ ትግርኛ
Yes, it does. ‘Stressed’ – ጭንቀት ዘለዎ ማለት’ዩ።

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
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… well, I suppose I do work hard.

ኣቕራቢ ቋንቋ ትግርኛ
ኪ, ድሓን ይስምዓካ ምህላው ደስ ይብለኒ።

ናይዚ ሰሙን’ዚ ትምህርቲ ወዲእና ቅድሚ ምፍልላይና ነቶም ሎሚ ዝተዘራረብናሎም ቃላት ተመሊስና ንርኣዮም። ኵሎም፡ ምስቲ ሰባት ኣብ ልዕሊ ስርሖም ዘለዎም ስምዒት ዝተኣሳሰሩ’ዮም - ‘job satisfaction’ ኣብ ስራሕ ክሳብ ክንደይ ሕጉሳት ምዃንኩም፡ ‘rewarding’ ዕዮኹም ምስ ሰራሕኩም ዝህበኩም ጽቡቕ ስምዒት፡ ‘appreciated’ ካልኦት ሰባት ንስራሕኩም ኣፍልጦ ክህብዎን ከኽብርዎን ከለዉ፡ ከምኡ’ውን ‘stressed’ ኣብ ስራሕ ዘሎ ኣሻቓሊ ስምዒት ወይ ጸቕጢ ዝገልጹ’ዮም።
