Your manager asks you to arrange a program for the first day for the new employee, but you can be there only in the morning, write a letter to
Explain why you can be there only in the morning
Show how you can help them in the morning
How to arrange the new employee in the afternoon
I am writing this letter to tell you that I am afraid I can only attend the new employee orientation program in morning tomorrow as there will be an important interview in the afternoon. It is for recruiting the deputy manager of financial department. Several senior managers will be present as the interviewers. The interview has been arranged in advance according to their schedules as managers are fully occupied.
Even though I’m not able to show up in the afternoon, the whole training program has been arranged properly. In the morning, I’ll first tell new employees what we are going to do in the whole orientation program, and I’ll give them an introduction of our company, including the main business, goals and organizational structure. And in the afternoon, my colleagues Lucy and George will show them around the office to help them familiar with the working environment and there will be mini-games in which they can get to know each other and their colleagues in each department.
I hope you are satisfied with my arrangement, and please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.
In many countries, traditional customs are being lost.
Why do you think it is?
What can schools and parents to do keep traditional customs alive?
Traditional customs are being lost on a global scale, the fact of which is consistently seen by our eyes, heard by our ears and told by our mouth. While embracing exciting new changes, many people are even more anxious about the future of those traditions: would they end up as history fragments only to be kept in memories of the old and textbooks of the young?
To my mind, traditional customs are dying out because of two factors. For one, there is a conflict between modern thoughts and some traditional customs. Most of them are presented in a way which is quite simple, if not boring. With the belief of “good wine needs no bush” and of course unfamiliarity with the modern market, the old generations seldom see the need of adapting the traditions to a new world where a cool look always goes down well with young people. For another, the work of conservation and inheritance is not proceeding too well. The task requires profound knowledge, great passion, and most importantly, sufficient amount of money. It is the shortage of funding and participants that makes the work even harder.
To keep them alive, schools and parents can make a contribution by bringing children closer to those traditional customs. For example, lead them to understand the culture behind every single custom by hosting expert lectures to explain the significance, or organizing activities to create opportunities for authentic experiences.
In short, take actions to break the stalemate before it is too late.
