Tardiness unacceptable to Japanese
Itochu Indonesia president director Takuji Motooka says made the remarks at a seminar titled "Work Ethics at Japanese Companies and Its Culture Background," in Jakarta on Wednesday.
"Many Indonesian employees have a 'cultural shock' when working with a Japanese company and face difficulties in adapting, especially new graduates," Motooka said.
The fact that rubber time has become a tradition resulted in many Indonesian workers suffering cultural shocks when working with Japanese companies, which are known for their discipline, he said
He said cultural difference were not an excuse in international economic activities.
"By holding the brief seminar introducing work ethics at Japanese companies, prospective workers with potential to work for Japanese companies will become acquainted with the culture and work ethics at Japanese companies," Motooka said.
Japan is the second highest investor in Indonesia, according to the Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM).
