Japanese staff
"It is a norm to carry out such tasks Japanese companies. Why can't they understand that?"

Foreign staff
"I don't understand the rules of Japanese companies. It's so difficult to work in a Japanese company..." 

There is a gap between the way the company functions and the way that foreign employees work.The Japanese business etiquette is a given for the Japanese.
However, foreign employees are not familiar in such norms and therein lies the problem that companies face when hiring foreign employees.

Various dilemmas such as differing work perspectives, manners and morals.
Have you thrown your hands up in surrender and resign to having such problems due to a difference in culture? What might happen if this problem goes untreated?

"We should not have hired the foreigners in the first place!". A disorganized and directionless team.
The collapse of the company's structure and hirerachy.
These are but a few scenarios that may befall on a company that does not deal with the problem.

Likewise should there be an increasing number of unfamiliar work processes,
a negative image of Japanese companies may be embedded in the foreign employees.
This may lead to their resignation.
It is therefore essential for both Japanese and foreign employees to gain a mutual understanding of one another.
It is only when ideals are alinged, can the team work as one in the same direction. This will lead to a better future for everyone involved.

For this reason, e-learning version of "Winning Together" is created.

Targeted at foreign staffs who will be entering a Japanese company, Japanese employers who employs foreigners.

The contents are designed and packaged to suit both sides and provides maximum learning in a short period of time

With "Winning Together"
