Basic business manners
●Be on time---In Japan, it's very bad to be late for work or appointments.
Punctuality is almost mandatory. If you are going to be late, you will need to contact us 30 minutes in advance.
●Learn the rules of the company---Japanese companies have their own rules.
It is important to learn the rules quickly and get used to them.
Appearance is a very important part of giving a good first impression. In addition, when working in nursing care, it is necessary to be well-groomed to prevent accidents.
"Ohayou gozaimasu", "Konnichiwa", "Otsukaresamadesu". When you meet an elderly, their family, or your colleague or boss, greet them cheerfully and brightly. Greetings are the gateway to communication. Giving a greeting and signaling to the other person that "My heart is open." will also help the other person to open their heart. If the elderly is sitting, or is in a wheelchair, bend over so you are not so much higher than the elderly, and if the elderly is standing, then you should stand. When exchanging greetings, you should be roughly eye level with the other person.
3:Language to use with elderlies(Honorific Language)
In nursing care work and work at medical institutions such as care centers,
honorifics and correct language are important.
Polite language: Kashikomarimashita.
Ordinary:Dekimasen.(I can't do it)
Polite language: Watashiniha dekikanemasu.
Ordinary: Daredesuka. (Who?).
Polite language: Shitsureidesuga Donatasamade iratsyaimasuka.
Japan is one of very few countries in the world to use honorific language. As with the term "Ichigo-Ichi-e," we value the connection with other people, and believe it's not an accident to meet. So, we care for others and treat them respectfully. Honorific words and correct choice of words are very important.
