問題 1

To: Rick Deevers
From: Jan Ford
Date: May 6
Subject: Welcome party

Hi Rick,

I’m writing to remind you that as the designated organizers, we need to start putting the welcome party together for the new employees who’ll be joining our team next month. Ideally, the party would take place the week they start, which should be June 6. Let me confirm this first with Amanda. She’ll be back at work on Monday. As for the venue, we need to think about having the party catered if we’re going to use the cafeteria like we did last year. Don’t you think choosing an off-site location would be easier? Have them include food and drinks for a set price per person? In any case, let’s get together this week to see what we can come up with.

【TOEICビジネス問題対策】歓送迎会

新入社員を迎え入れるときや、社員が辞職したり退職したりするとき、会社ではよく、歓迎会(welcome party)や送別会(farewell party)を行います。こうした会には、部署のメンバーで食事に行く場合と、ケータリング(catering)を手配して社内で行う場合があります。歓送迎会のまとめ役である幹事は、日時や場所を決めて関係者にお知らせを送り、必要な場合は参加者から参加費を集めたり、お金を集めて贈り物を購入したりします。テストでは、歓送迎会の手配について相談をしている場面や、会のお知らせメモやEメールがよく取り上げられます。

問題 2

TO: Mr. Colby Kent, Pennbrook Inc.
FROM: Heidi Peters, Best Solutions
DATE: JUNE 11
SUBJECT: Profits

Dear Mr. Kent,

I am glad to be able to provide assistance concerning your company’s recent issues with profits leveling off. Below are suggestions for boosting revenue.

• Online expansion: Revise and expand your company’s Web site to make it more attractive to a wider customer base. In addition, holding online promotional events on a regular basis will tweak customer interest and motivate them to visit the Web site more often, thereby encouraging purchasing. Offering items that can only be purchased online is also appealing.

• Stagger the introduction of new items: Introduce new items once every two to three weeks instead of the current system where you present an entire line four times a year. Customers are always looking for something new—offering new items at shorter intervals will have customers checking your products more frequently.

I would be happy to answer any questions or to expand on the above.

Sincerely,
Heidi Peters

問題 2

TO: Cliff Mercola, Human Resources
FROM: Barbara Wang, Sales & Marketing
DATE: November 4
SUBJECT: New employees

Although the manager of our department set the number of new employees for Sales & Marketing at the annual meeting two weeks ago, I feel there is a need to rethink the situation. The results from the market research conducted for our new line of cross-training sportswear have come in, and the response is less favorable than expected. This is an indication that we would need at least three more new employees in Sales & Marketing to handle the task of promoting the line. This matter needs immediate attention but our manager is on vacation and will not be back until Monday. Would it be possible for you to meet with us on Tuesday to discuss the hiring situation? I look forward to hearing from you.
