Microsoft’s Office collection of productivity software, formerly a one-off purchase that included the famously inept virtual assistant, Clippy, is now a cloud-based service boasting more than 214 million subscribers who pay around $99 a year;
However, one idiosyncrasy unique to corporate Japan prevents the simple reduction of unessential workers to improve productivity. That is the concept of omotenashi, which the Japan National Tourist Organization defines as “the Japanese mindset of hospitality … an implicit understanding that there are no menial tasks if the result ensures a great experience for a guest.”
The thinking is that the construction company needs to provide services beyond just construction and the exam operator beyond just monitoring the exam, to ensure their “guests,” whether they are pedestrians, clients or exam-takers, are well looked after. Adding extra workers, then, become a necessary step to achieve omotenashi.

This year, we were in Japan for Easter Holidays, and went to Toshima Catholic Church in Tokyo. I was impressed with the organization, and here’s why:
a.) The church was done very simply. I always think that a church should be simple and elegant, and prevent ostentatious display.
2.) The people were friendly, and obviously enjoyed a great camaraderie. They welcomed strangers, and prepared snacks, and painstakingly painted Easter eggs for everyone.
3.) The group had Japanese, Filipinos, Asians, Chinese, Africans, Indians, altogether, and everybody seemed to be talking and enjoying each other.
4.) But sometimes, we are impressed by specific people we meet. Everybody did their parts well in the mass, but particularly the 30 piece choirs ( mostly Filipinos), and their Indonesian conductor. The conductor was young, and immensely inspired, and talented. He cued everybody, and did his conducting with gusto. But most of all, while he was bringing up everybody song after song, he always did so in an encouraging and friendly way, and with a smile. Its always inspiring when you see people bear great responsibility lightly.
I hope more organizations are like this. The future of most organizations ( when cyber groups are in vogue) will be their ability to form ever closer knit communities, and deeper relationships. A very enlightening Easter!
