TADIAN, Mountain Province – The management of the Manila-based Philippine Human Resource Global Information Center (PHGIC) disclosed that the more than a dozen workers from the different parts of the province who were earlier deployed to their respective employers in different prefectures in Japan are now doing well in their work that will serve as a stepping stone for the improvement of the lives of their families they left behind.
PHGIC president and chief executive officer Clark Dexter Badaran said that some of the earlier deployed workers initially encountered homesickness after being away from their families but they were able to overcome this with the help of the company through proper guidance and intervention.
Further, Badaran and other company officials and employees also visited some of the families of those earlier deployed to Japan to look into their status and welfare as well as update them on how their family members are doing in their respective job sites.
He claimed that the family members of the overseas workers informed them that those in Japan have been constantly communicating with them and have been regularly sending money from their salaries which they were able to use to provide for the needs of those they were left behind.
The PHGIC official pointed out that the success of these successfully deployed workers overseas should serve as an inspiration and motivation for the Nihonggo language trainees to strive for the best in completing the course and have a mastery of the language which will be their advantage when interviewed by their prospective employers.
He said that the company will continue to extend to the deployed overseas workers the necessary guidance and assistance for them to cope up with the initial challenges of working in the foreign land and being away from their families so that they will be able to contribute in providing for the needs of their families.
Badaran claimed that the company is trying to work out the timely deployment of qualified Nihonggo language trainees but they must also do their part by making good in the interviews with their prospective employers and master the language to send a message that they deserve to work in Japan.
He urged those availing of the free Nihonggo language trainings in the different municipalities to help themselves by trying to study on their own and reviewing their lessons so that they will be ready to face their employers and answer them confidently in Nihonggo to convince the latter that they deserve to be selected for the available jobs in the various companies.
More individuals who were able to complete their language training will be deployed to their respective employers in the coming months as the demand for Filipino workers in Japan is reportedly increasing depending on the skills possessed by the interested applicants for the available jobs required by the Japanese companies.
