It's the first day of a new month, a fine time to look at idioms for talking about a new employee's first days on the job. So let's begin with a “colorful” idiom indeed!
Just as fresh blood can invigorate a sick patient, it can also bring new energy to an ailing company. Here's how!
- New blood and fresh blood refer to new members of a group, who have lots of energy and new ideas.
Young blood refers to new members who are young.
- new blood や fresh blood は、あるグループにおける新人をさし、活力や新しいアイディアに満ち溢れている人たちを言います。
young blood は、若い新人たちのことをさします。
- Some of the more seasoned employees have been asked to accept early retirement to make way for new blood.
- I think bringing some fresh blood into the company's top management will help boost performance and morale.
- The government needs fresh blood to bring new ideas and change to the country.
- With all the young blood on the team now, I feel like a real old-timer.
We'll be circulating this way again tomorrow!
