Left radical is 'person' (人). Right radical is a character found only in Chinese that acts' phonetically to express 'work'. Thus, 'working person', and such related meanings a 'colleague' and 'government worker'. Henshall suggests taking the right radical as 'big' (大), 'away' (八), day (日), and 'little' (小), and as a mnemonic: 'Person away on both big days and little days is officially a colleague.'
