We've got to come up with a way to solve this problem. No one is getting all their work done during the work day. We need to do some brainstorming to come up with a time-management solution for our office. Well, what do you suggest? It's not that we are all wasting a lot of time. Fact is, we're understaffed. People just have too much to do. So you think we should hire some new people? That is one possible solution. What else could be the problem? Maybe we do have some problems with time-management. If people were always on time to work, they might get more done in the morning before lunch. That's true. Also, maybe we could shorten the lunch break from one hour to 45 minutes. That would add a little time to everyone's day. 15 minutes would be good, but I wonder if it would make a big impact on the employees' output. I still think it's a problem with too much workload. We ended up right where we started. Maybe it is time to look for some temp workers to help with a few projects. That would lighten everyone's load.
A: 我们得想出一个解决这个问题的方法。现在没有一个人能在工作日期内完成所有的工作。我们需要集思广益，想出我们部门时间管理解决方案。 B：好吧，你有什么建议？实际情况是：并不是我们大家在浪费时间，而是我们人员不足。大家要做的事情太多了。 A:那么，你认为我们应该多雇些新人吗？这个办法可行。还有什么问题？ B:也许我们在时间管理方面的确存在问题。如果大家都能一直按时上班，也许午饭前就能多完成些工作。 A：你说和没错。不但如此，我们还能把午休时间从一小时减到45分钟。这样，每个人每天又能多出一点儿工作时间。 B:有15分钟当然好了，但我想知道这对员工的工作效率有多大的影响。我还是认为工作量太大是个问题。 A:我们又回到最初的问题上去了。也许有些项目是该找一些临时工帮忙了，那样会减轻我们大家的劳动负荷。
