Business Communication in Action  実践ビジネス英語
Hello everybody.   こんにちは。みなさん。
 
Hello and welcome to the show.
This is Heather Howard.
Let's take a look at conversation at work.
 
Workplace Trends (3)
 
Pearson cites statistics about the number of freelancers expected 
in coming years.
And McMillan says he's heard they have high job satisfaction.
Pearson says millennials are passionate about flexibility 
and work-life balance.
And he and Grace talk about changes in where people physically 
do their work.
 
 
In the not-too-distant future:
At a future time that is not far off, 
you know, that is not very long from now.
We also say, "the not-to-distant past."
Things like, in the not-too-distant past, no one had cellphones.
Or, in the not-too-distant past, we didn't have antibiotics.
 
Healthcare coverage: In this case, "coverage" refers to the amount 
and type of protection that an insurance agreement gives you.
Ah, if you ask someone, "How's your coverage?" or 
"What's your coverage?"
You're asking them what their policy pays for and what percentage.
We also use the verb "cover" this way.
This insurance policy covers fire and earthquake damage.
Or, uncovered for fire and earthquake damage.
 
Media coverage / press coverage 報道機関による報道
 
On-demand: McMillan up at the top says,
"I've seen surveys that show on-demand freelance workers have 
high levels of job satisfaction,"
On-demand means you can get something 
whenever you need it or ask for it.
McMillan is talking about freelancers who work 
when a company requests their services.
Ah, likewise, we can watch movies on-demand now.
We just go to our computers, click  on the movie we want 
and it starts streaming.
 
Job satisfaction:
 
Here to stay: Not going to change or leave, ah, firmly established.
Ah, things like, is virtual currency here to stay? Or is just a fad?
Or, the cold weather is here to stay for a while.
Temperatures will be low through the week.
 
Be passionate about: Care about something a lot, be devoted to it.
You may not have noticed but I'm really passionate about movies.
I love watching them, critiquing them.
Or, you could say, "He's really passionate about animal rights."
He works hard to protect animals and to spread awareness of the issue.
 
Maintain a work-life balance:
 
Job-sharing: Work-sharing
 
Lock oneself into: Commit to something, ah, fix yourself in a position.
He's locked himself into working at this company for five years.
Or, you could reverse it and say, 
"This contract locks him into working here for five years."
 
Autonomous: Down at the bottom, Pearson says,
"The workforce of the future will be mobile, flexible and autonomous."
 
Be evaluated according to results:
Be assessed, be judged according to the results we produce.
Ah, you could say, job applicants are evaluated by their resume, 
interviews and the writing test.
Or, we need to reevaluate our market strategy.
 
Workplace flexibility:
 
Mainstream: "Mainstream" refers to what most people, do, you know, 
what's considered standard in some situation.
We also say, go mainstream or become mainstream.
Become common practice, become ordinary.
Ah, acupuncture has gone mainstream in the United States.
Not exotic, not considered exotic anymore.
 
Mainstream media  従来からある新聞・雑誌・テレビなどの 既存の主流媒体 
 
Online media / wireless media
 
Internet  connection: Grace says,
"The office will be wherever you happen to be doing your work 
- as long as you have things like an internet connection."
A communication's link to the internet.
We also use connection about phone communications.
Ah, let's say, I'm speaking to someone overseas and I can't hear them.
I might say, 
"You know what. We have a bad connection. Let me call you back."
 
 
That's all for today.
 
See you next time. Bye, bye.
