::::: Class Report on June 13th, 2015:::::
All participants enjoyed playing “Salaryman Showdown” game and we moved on the discussion part, where we talked about as follows;
•What things indicate that a person is a diligent worker / employee / professional?
•What is considered “a good day’s work”?
•How is Japan (or your country) unique in its values?
From primary school on, Japanese society encourages community spirit and voluntary service, such as when children clean their schools and help junior students. Individualism is discouraged. In school sports, group competition is the rule.
In the workplace, there are regular consultations on how to improve company performance. Organizations try to create a community of workers of one for all and all for one.
However, our ethics are getting changed to the things we do what we want to do, we love what we do although a few of us can do what we love at work. What do you work for? You would say that salary, job satisfactions, promotions…
We are looking forward to seeing you at next BCC class on Saturday July 11th!
