Importance of Japanese language education in establishing the active participation of foreign human resources

Hello, I am providing an article with a little more firm content from TCJ's corporate staff.
While the working population is declining in Japan due to the declining birthrate and aging population, the number of foreign workers is projected to reach nearly 10 million by 2050.
This is one in five to six people in the total population.

Many companies are considering hiring foreign talent. In fact, many companies utilize foreign human resources, but there are language barriers.
For example, the managerial class of a large company is using Google Translate to communicate with foreign human resources, which not only makes it impossible to establish close relationships,
but also causes business problems.In addition, it is not uncommon for foreign human resources to not be able to perform well themselves because their language is not well communicated,
and eventually to leave their jobs.
Why is this happening?

First, the person in charge of human resources may judge the Japanese proficiency of foreign human resources only by JLPT.JLPT is the most famous Japanese test, but there is no speaking test.
Therefore, there are many people who cannot talk even if they have N1.However, there is a mismatch after hiring because the human resources does not know these facts properly.

Secondly, when the human resources conducts recruitment interviews, it may not be possible to confirm proper Japanese proficiency.In addition, since the judgment is made only by the subjectivity
and feelings of the person in charge, TCJ also receives support requests about "how to check ".

Thirdly, even if foreign employees themselves feel that Japanese is a problem, the importance of Japanese language education has not yet penetrated the company side,
and sufficient support has not been received. If it is difficult to provide financial support, it will be quite helpful just to provide information on the Japanese language school.

However, the reality is that many companies still do not provide sufficient support because the idea that "Japanese lessons are personal" still occupies the majority.
Under these circumstances, TCJ offers a variety of lessons to foreign human resources working in Japan.
We value the flexibility of the course so that busy business people can take it easily, and provide a practical curriculum that focuses on improving business communication skills. In addition, we offer high-quality lessons and online classes by professional instructors, as well as a fulfilling educational program and environment not found in other schools.
In addition, we hold regular seminars for managers of companies that employ foreign human resources, and we are working daily to establish the active participation of foreign human resources.

If you are a company representative reading this article and are interested in our school, please contact us at any time! We will listen carefully to the situation and issues and propose suggestions!
