INGLIS MUSEUM
Perth WA

Mr. Jonathan Watford
Commonwealth Industries
17 Bridge Street, West Perth WA

January 15

Dear Mr. Watford,

Thank you for your company’s ongoing support of Inglis Museum. It is only through the aid of corporate donors such as yourself that we are able to continue to serve the city of Perth as an art organization.

It is once again time for our annual fund drive. This year’s contributions will mainly go toward repair costs of the Patrona Wing that was badly damaged in December’s storm.

To make a contribution, please fill out the enclosed form and send it to the museum accompanied by a check. As a patron of the museum, all Commonwealth Industries employees will be entitled to half off on admission fees.

Very truly yours,

Gayle Meisner
Curator
Inglis Museum

【TOEICビジネス問題対策】企業の寄付活動

欧米の企業は、芸術関連団体や慈善団体、非営利組織への支援や寄付を、日本の企業よりも活発に行います。特に公共意識の高いアメリカでは、企業だけでなく、富裕層などが進んで寄付活動を行います。世界有数の大企業では単発的な寄付ではなく、「基金」を作り、医療、教育などの支援に当てています。テストでは、大口の寄付(generous donation)をした人へ賛辞を贈るスピーチや、図書館、博物館、研究機関などが地元の有力企業に寄付金のお願いをする文書などが出題されるので、関連語句を覚えて、日本ではそれほど身近ではないこの分野に関する出題に強くなりましょう。

【TOEICビジネス問題対策】雇用・勤務形態

会社員には、正社員、パート・アルバイト、契約社員などの雇用形態(employment status)があります。企業は必要に応じて各雇用形態の人員を募集・採用し、雇用契約を結びます。雇用形態によって、業務内容、賃金や就業時間、雇用期間、福利厚生の適用範囲などが異なります。一方、勤務形態には日勤、夜勤、非常勤などがありますが、特に病院や工場など24時間体制で業務を行わなければならないところでは、勤務時間帯を区切って人員を入れ換えて働くシフト制を採用する場合がほとんどです。テストでは、こうした形態に関する語句が使われることが多いので、この項で関連語句をしっかり覚えましょう。

【TOEICビジネス問題対策】昇進・人事異動

会社に入るとまず、肩書きのない社員からスタートし、さまざまな経験を経て、主任→係長→課長→部長…のような順に役職・地位が上がっていきます。これを昇進(promotion)と言い、昇進するたびに給料が上がります(get a raise)。また、昇進するためのさまざまな経験をさせるために、会社は社員の所属する部署を変えたり、本社から国内外の支社に配属を変えたりします。これが人事異動(transfer)です。こうした昇進や異動などの人事は社内の人事部(Human Resources、略称HR)が担当します。昇進や異動に関する会話やお知らせは、リスニング、リーディングのどちらのセクションでも頻繁に出題されます。

WE HAVE A NEW COPY MACHINE!

It’s nice to finally have a copy machine that works. Our last two machines were rather quirky and had to be serviced all too often. We decided to change manufacturers and to go for top of the line. The CopyMax 2000 is a pleasure to use but don’t overdo it—remember we’re trying to save paper. Each of you will be issued control cards that are to be inserted in the small scanner on top of the copy machine each time you use it. Copies can be made only when the cards are inserted. All the data at the time copies are made, including the number of copies, date and time will be recorded and carefully managed in a database. You may pick up your control cards from Jason in Supplies any time after February 11.
