6. Write a letter of invitation to the official opening of the exhibition next month.
1. Read the text and translate the marked part:
(1) The American psychologist Frederic Herzberg has proposed a theory of motivation which divides the factors of work environment into two classes: satisfiers on one hand, and motivators on the other.
(2) From his analysis, Herzberg concluded that the elements in a job which produced satisfaction are: achievement, recognition, responsibility, promotion prospects, work itself. He called them “motivators”.
(3) The elements whose absence or inadequacy in a job produced dissatisfaction are: payment, relations to others, type of supervision, company policy, physical working conditions, fringe benefits. Herzberg called them “satisfiers”.
(4) There are several basic areas of job offer evaluation such as compensation, status, career perspectives, level of responsibility, etc. Compensation, of course, will be one of the key factors in your decision whether to accept or reject the offer. A good benefits plan includes many supplementary perks that offer very attractive and competitive additions. To show how complicated it could be, let us just name the major parts of well-designed compensation package: base salary, bonus system, company car, medical insurance, life insurance, holidays, pension plans, profit sharing, employee assistance programmes, etc.
(5)There are some more details other than money that need to be evaluated before accepting a job offer. These non-monetary factors, such as your new position title, education and training, promotion opportunities or travel frequency, are very important and must be carefully examined.
(6) Concentrate on key items and forget about the small perks, such as paid lunches or free water. Otherwise you will miss important things, and the employer will understand that you are interested in compensation more than in job content.
2. Read the text and decide whether these statements are true or false:
1) The theory of motivation divides the factors of work environment into satisfiers and motivators.
2) Motivators are relations to others, payment, fringe benefits.
3) The elements whose absence or inadequacy in a job produced dissatisfaction are called satisfiers.
4) Non-monetary factors are to be evaluated before accepting a job offer.
5) Monetary factors, such as your new position title, education and training, are very important and must be carefully examined.

1) Reason for doing something; encouragement to do something (p. 1);
