2014.05.15【英译中】获得新工作前必须和HR商讨的5件事(二)

Employee Education

员工再教育

Even if you can’t imagine returning to school, find out about your prospective employer’s continuing education and tuition reimbursement program. A few years down the road, you may realize you need an additional degree or even just a few courses to position yourself best for advancement.

即使你觉得不可能重回校园,也要了解你未来的雇主提供的继续教育培训费用补偿计划。你走上工作之路几年后,也许会意识到需要再拿个学历甚至只是再学些课程以便为升职做好充分的准备。

In addition to finding out how much your company will reimburse you for further education, also ask questions to uncover how easy they will make it for you to receive it. The most generous companies will not only pay for your education, but also allow you time off to complete a degree. But, as with moving reimbursement, find out if there is a required payback in time with the company if you use a corporate reimbursement program for your education.

除了知道公司会为你的继续再教育提供多少费用报销外,还得问些问题以便了解按公司规定是不是容易拿到这些费用报销。最慷慨的公司不仅会为你的继续教育付费,而且会给你时间学习直到拿到一个学历。但是,正如搬家费补偿一样,你也得找出如果你用公司的钱去学习公司是不是会有工作期限的要求。

 

Vacation

假期

You probably didn’t feel it wise to ask about vacation or sabbaticals when you were trying to land the job, but now’s your opportunity to learn about the company’s policies. How many days does the company offer each year? Are you allowed to roll over days from one calendar year to the next? Will you be compensated for the days off, or not?

你可能觉得在你想接受这份工作的时候问及假期或休息日是不明智的,不过这时是你了解公司政策的好机会。公司每年有多少天十年假期?允许你把当年度未休完的假期滚动计入下一年度吗?有没有加班费?

Today, some of the more creative companies are offering flexible vacation trade-offs. One 2009 college graduate working for a defense contractor told me she took advantage of a company policy that allowed her to convert her overtime hours to vacation days and extend her vacation abroad with her boyfriend.

如今,一些更有创造性的公司提供灵活休假交换制。一位在防御工程承包商那儿工作的2009届大学毕业生告诉我,按公司政策,她可以把加班时间换成休假,利用这一点,她就有更长的假期出国去会男友。

 

Work-Life Balance

工作-生活平衡

As a single young professional in my 20s at Merrill Lynch, I never considered reviewing the policies that would affect my work-life balance, such as parental leave, flex time, telecommuting policies, or retirement benefits. But before I left the firm 10 years later, I was married, had two children, worked from home one day a week, and had contributed to my children’s college fund.

当我20多岁在美林证券还是单身的年轻专员时,我从没想过要好好看看那些会影响到我的工作-生活平衡的政策,例如,探亲假、弹性工作制、在家办公政策、退休福利等。但在我10年后离开公司时,我已经结婚并有2个孩子,每周在家工作一天,也为孩子们缴纳了大学教育基金。

You may be far from building a family, but it’s worthwhile to check out how your company will treat you if you do. In the U.S., anyone—male or female—employed for at least 12 months by a business with a payroll of at least 50 people may take 12 unpaid weeks off and not lose his or her job under the Family Medical Leave Act. But the structure of these policies can differ: For example, some companies offer more than 12 weeks. And some companies compensate the parent for the time they are home, while others don’t.

也许建立家庭对你来说还很遥远,但仔细看看如果你成家公司会怎么对待你,这很值得。在美国,根据家庭医疗休假法案,任何人——无论男女——在一个至少50人的公司有偿工作满12个月后可以休12周的无薪假且不会失去工作。但政策实施可能有所不同:例如,有的公司提供的无薪假多于12周。有的公司还会为员工父母在家照顾提供补偿金,而另一些却不会。

Similarly, flex time, telecommuting guidelines, and savings plans—although possibly unimportant to you now—might later make the difference between maintaining your job with your employer and quitting down the line. Moreover, these policies can be a revealing measure of your prospective company’s attitudes toward its employees—especially its female employees.

与此类似,弹性工作制、在家办公指南及储蓄计划——尽管对现在的你来说不重要——但以后你面临是继续工作还是彻底辞职时或许就会不同。此外,这些政策也揭示了你未来的公司对员工的态度——尤其是对女性员工。

 

Although a discussion with your prospective employer’s HR department may not seem important when you receive an offer for your dream job, these are worthwhile conversations to have. Not only will you reduce the possibility of surprises down the road, you may be able to adjust the offer in your favor. Remember, you never have more leverage than when you’re holding an offer you haven’t accepted.

尽管在你收到一份梦想得到的录用通知时和未来公司的人力资源部讨论这些问题似乎不那么重要,但这类商谈是很值得的。不仅减少了你在未来工作中感到吃惊的可能性,而且或许可以调整录用条件使之对你更有利。记住,当你拿到一份录用通知但还没接受时是最有机会谈条件的。
