Communication is a powerful tool

Communication can be a powerful tool especially when combined with a proactive and positive attitude.

Learning a new language is not just memorizing vocabulary and words; it’s about opening up your mind to a whole new perspective on life.
When you’re open to learning, not only English but, learning anything, you’re more likely to see opportunities arise. Those can be business opportunities, new friendships and even relationships, etc.

BIG John's BIG Picture

If you're one of those employees thinking, "Man, that bonus isn't enough to make me study English. It's too hard. It's too time consuming. I don't need English. I've lived this long just fine without it." Or something similar to this, to make you want to give up before you start. Then I have the following blog advise for you.

Dress code at a workplace in Japan

Many people may have such an image in their minds when talking about a business dress code in Japan, that male employees usually wear a formal suit in black or navy blue, with a button-down shirt inside; whereas female employees tend to dress themselves in a business casual style, which consists with a shirt and a skirt without patterns, often in white, grey, black or blue colour.

Telework

Why telework(telecommuting) is becoming important to Japan?

The world has witnessed Japan successfully transform herself from a land of ruins after WWII to a prosperous, highly developed country, with an amazing growth rate in her GDP for decades throughout 1960s to 1980s.
It once seems to be unthinkable that a super economic power like Japan would be facing several severe problems in her economy, and starting her steps to decline, mainly caused by the ‘burst of bubble’ and worsened by its low birth rate together with a constantly growing population of aging people.

Taking time off in Japanese companies



Japan has a reputation for being a culture of workaholics, but there are of course many allowances for taking time off. Paid time off is given to employees, and companies encourage their employees to use their vacation days.

Trip in Chennai, India: Business feel


About a month ago, I was invited to visit India, and go on numerous client visits together with our colleagues in India. This would be an opportunity for me to see firsthand the Indian market culture and how it runs. I was quite excited but wasn’t exactly sure on what to expect.

April, a time for beginnings

Different cultures mark the beginning of the year in different ways. There is the calendar year, for example set by the Gregorian calendar or lunar calendar. There is the academic school year, the start date for which differs vastly by country and region. Japan uses the Gregorian calendar to mark the start of the year as 1 January, but it is one of the countries where the fiscal year starts in April. (Other countries that follow this schedule include Australia and New Zealand.) The academic school year also starts in April; this is thought to coincide with the fiscal year.

Accelerate Communications via A Study Session

We have an activity called study session which is created by me. It was made only around three months after I joined e-Jan. It was quite impressive because people were open to ideas even though it was from a new employee like me. I would like to explain more about the study session.


Before I explain what the study session is, I would like to write about its background. I got a motivation to create study session from my team leader. Once every two weeks, my team leader and I will have a “one on one” meeting for an hour. In the meeting, the leader couches me to become better professional. He asked me what my dreams are when we had our first meeting. One of my dreams was to become senior-level developer. Next, he asked me what to do to achieve my dream. I said I need to read books, write code frequently, and have many discussions as well as communications. Everything else is fine, but a lack of communications is the problem. My leader gave me a homework that I need to start discussions somehow. To fulfill this mission, I created the study session.
