M:Yes,I thought so.Well.I and the executive board feel that much of our improved performance in the main office is due to your conscientious efforts.
W:Oh,thank you,Mr.Davis.My job has certainly become easier since we computerized our record_keeping system.The equipment is a pleasure to use.
M:That's true.But we are especially impressed with how your influence contributes to good office relations and improved staff attitude toward the work.
W:Well,thank you for your confidence.We do have a lot of good people in the office ,and the new machinery is wonderful.
M:Yes,but machines are only as good as the people who use them. They cannot assure harmony and efficiency in a staff.
W:That's very true.
