TRAINING : BUSINESS CULTURE

Pre-departure Training (For future expatriates to Japan)

Before going to Japan on a long assignment, it is important to know a few things that will make your life easier. During this short session, we will give you all the information you need to settle smoothly in your new host country.

WHO IS IT FOR?

Future non-Japanese expatriates and their spouses.

Prerequisite: Ideally, the participants will have already taken the training: “Working and communicating effectively with Japanese colleagues”

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

You will learn the basics of living in Japan and be able to integrate more quickly in your new environment. After discussion with HR and/or the future expatriate, only topics of interest to the expatriate will be covered.

Suggested content includes:

  • Geography and climate
  • What to pack (things you don’t find easily in Japan, furniture and appliances)
  • Transportation in Japan and how to use it
  • Quick Reference Guide (emergency and useful phone numbers for English-speaking foreigners)
  • Basic services (banking, insurance, medical care, phone, ID card and driver’s license, schools, shopping, post office, etc.)
  • Living as a foreigner in Japanese society (basic etiquette, neighbors, visiting someone’s home, public baths, etc.)
  • Discover your new city (explanation of the different areas of the city where the expatriate will be relocated.)

Our trainer will supplement the presentation with his/her own experience.
