In a world of political conflicts and uncertainty in work environments, understanding cultural nuances is key to success in a multicultural and remote working environment.

Here are 9 Japanese concepts that can help you understand Japanese culture:

#workplace #culture #Japan
1. Omoiyari

Omoiyari means caring and showing sincere consideration for others.

Japanese fans made the headlines in 2018 when they tidied up a stadium after the game. A display of Omoiyari.

Practicing Omoiyari helps build self-awareness, empathy, and positivity. Source: https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2018/07/03/nationa
2. Ikigai

Ikigai is a state of wellbeing that arises from devotion to activities one enjoys, bringing a sense of fulfillment, said Japanese psychologist Michiko Kumano.

For many companies across industries, #hybridwork will become the norm. Studies say employees prefer being mainly remote with occasional trips to the office to collaborate together. Here's why I believe the shift to hybrid will be massive and what drives it - a #thread 👇
1. After a year of #remote work under less than ideal circumstances, employees expect flexibility and freedom, because they've shown they deserve it. Fewer employees than ever are ready to accept the commutes, the 9-5, and showing up to the #office just to be there 🤷‍♀️
2. Now we know the values of remote work, but we've also extracted the things we love most about workspaces and want to recreate them. The offices have benefits for collaboration, creative thinking, and human connection and people want those things back but without the faults.

1/ Almost one year passed since I work from home. It is time for the #workplace evolution post. March 12, 2020. Coffee table, a bunch of books, #MacBookPro 12 (2019). I am sitting on a couch 😅
2/ April 14, 2020. My back kills me. Now I have a standing desk. Plus, #Beats Solo for all the 5x meetings. #AlbertEinstein for inspiration.
3/ May 18, 2020. Okay, lockdowns are in place in the UK. We will WFH for at least 3 more months. #LG 4k, @twelvesouth stand for MacBook, @HermanMiller Mirra 2 Chair, and the best keyboard I ever had – @UltHackKeyboard ❤️. This keyboard healed my fingers in a couple of weeks.

Work from Home – Things to Remember

#COVID19 pandemic has put us in an unprecedented situation. There are no guidelines provided, no predetermined rules to follow, nothing to look up to, but we are humans and we know how to tackle an emergency, we know how to convert Image

a disaster into an opportunity. Below are some of the things that you can follow to keep yourself healthy and happy.

Give yourself time:
As you are forced to work from home, why not utilise this time to brush off your hobbies? I am sure you wanted to do a lot of things
3/n
that you couldn’t due to lack of time. Now is the chance. Don't use too much #socialmedia but give more time to speak to ur friends.

Health is the most important thing you can care for during this pandemic. While working, keep proper posture; don’t forget to walk

Lessons Learnt From #Publichealth

We see the pattern globally over & over again of governments not taking a strong #humanitarian leadership stand & the devastation it causes a group of people

Unfortunately the treatment of #HCW in #COVID19vic is now an example

1/
#publichealth aims to improve health of all members of society through equitable distribution & utilisation of goods & services

Programs to improve health are only as good as the government & rule of law they operate under: sustainable +ve change comes from wise leadership

2/
#publichealth covers all members of society & the sustainable development goals (#SDGs) are for all members of society

It seems unnecessary to state it but in the #COVID19vic era it now must be clearly stated:

Public Health & SDGs Apply To Healthcare Workers #HCW

No matter how much you love that toddler you are carrying around, if he weighs 25 pounds or more, there is a chance you could injure yourself carrying him on repeated occasions. Interestingly, two day's worth of saturated adult #diapers could be close to this weight. 1/
Most #CareProviders of #seniors are older adults themselves (especially the aging #nursing and #nursingaide #workforce) and are at greater risk of injury moving heavy loads like this, multiple times each week. 2/
The availability of #realtime #alerts for #incontinence events enables #CareProviders to change diapers in a timely fashion to prevent #urinarytractinfection and other problems. It also prevents against dry diapers being changed unnecessarily, 3/

I think it’s time for the truth to come out... dirty secrets are not my burden to carry.
I’ll start by saying up until a few years ago, I was fully indoctrinated into toxic police culture. I fully bought into it. If I heard anything like my story I wouldn’t believe it. I’d hold popular opinion that she’s crazy/incompetent/vindictive/lying/slutty and a bitch.

Born as 3rd daughter in a culture where birth of a daughter is resented by many, my parents had to deal with 'eerie' solutions from society to get rid of the "burden" that I was about to become. But, my visionary parent-warriors had their armours on! 😇

1) This is a civil law, not a criminal law. That means the victim does not have to go to the police. The law says that any organisation with employees above ten employees need to implement the internal committee. This looks into the complaints and conducts an inquiry.
2) The presiding officer of the committee is a senior female employee. The minimum of four members and mostly less than ten. The complainant does not have to be officially an employee. The third-party can also complain. A customer, visitor can also lodge a complaint.

Once upon a time, my manager & colleagues from Delhi visited Bangalore and the client meeting goes on till 10.30 pm. They were complaining about it on way back to their hotel. It was brand new information for me to see someone complaining about something that is Image
normal for me. It took me 2 years to digest the information and relate it with commutation. In Delhi people maintain a schedule because they have fixed time to travel by metro but in Bangalore people don't have any schedule and work from late morning till late night because the
commutation is private. The answer to, Why people behave in a certain way in a society is somewhere deep inside and not very obvious. Like 4 monkey in a cage with a ladder and banana story. The intelligent corporates, that consult everyone on everything don't have

Many of the long standing societal rules were re-written at times of crisis. We are undergoing one of the biggest crisis of our generation. Wonder what rules will be re-written in the post COVID world. Trying to predict few changes in the new world

The de facto delivery of education will change to online mediums now that the education institutes will start seeing the potential of online education delivery. Low impact in K12, high impact in higher education.
