Let's use e-learning to improve the skills of foreign employees.

E-learning - training for foreign staff

E-learning makes it possible to share know-how and knowledge that cannot be conveyed by words or paper alone, regardless of nationality.
In recent years, with the spread of the Internet and advances in information technology"E-learning system.E-learning learning has been attracting a wide range of attention using
By using e-learning that is adapted to mobile devices, employees can easily learn at home, on the move, or during breaks.

By introducing e-learning into your internal training program, you can efficiently train your internal foreign staff.
In order to ensure the sustainable growth of employees, it is important for companies to provide appropriate education and learning opportunities according to the "growth stage" of employees, regardless of their culture or nationality.

▼ Here are three concerns of educators who are overwhelmed with the task of training foreign staff!

No.1: Current situation and challenges of language barriers
No.2. Business communication problems
3. Differences in cultural values


No.1: Current situation and challenges of language barriers

Due to language barriers, it is difficult to convey instructions and requests verbally.
More and more companies are hiring foreign staff to solve their labor shortages, but some companies are facing various challenges including the language barrier.
Not being able to communicate smoothly can be very stressful for Japanese staff working in the same field.

When hiring foreign staff, it is important to be prepared to accept them from their point of view.

No.2. Business communication problems

Japan has a complex language structure that uses hiragana and katakana in addition to kanji.
In Europe, China, and the United States, many races and ethnic groups live together, and the languages and cultures of other regions are easily exchanged.
However, Japan is an island culture, and we have shared values in a Japanese community.
Therefore.You don't have to tell me this much.It is difficult for foreign staff to understand vague expressions unique to Japanese, such as "please finish it as soon as possible" or "please try to achieve as much as possible".

3. Differences in cultural values

There are often cases of trouble arising from differences in cultural values, such as the balance between work and private life, hierarchical relationships, and attitudes toward religion.

For example, a foreign staff who asks "Why do I have to do this job? and a Japanese employee who is annoyed by it.
Some cultures in the world take it for granted that you should clearly explain your reasons and rationale for your work.
If you expect people to "read the air" in the Japanese sense, it can be manifestly difficult to build a trusting relationship.

Why e-learning is an effective way to train foreign employees

1. Training is available at any time of the day, giving you an equal opportunity to learn.
2. Compared with conventional group training, it is possible to conduct training without gathering people in one place, which "reduces costs such as venue costs.
No.3: Using video materials, you can visually instruct staff who do not understand Japanese about the handling of products and services, and business flow.
