We are pleased to announce that eftax Co., Ltd. has won the award in the SME category at the “Global one team Award 2020” hosted by one visa Inc.
The “Global one team Award 2020” was newly established this year to form role models of the employment of foreign nationals, which will continue to increase in the future in Japanese society, by spotlighting “teams that have become especially powerful through the activities of foreign nationals” and “administrative scriveners who provide support from the aspect of visas”.
The award ceremony was held on Wednesday, December 2, 2020, and eftax was selected from among more than 100 applicants in the special category “Medium Industry Enterprise Category Award”.
We will continue to make further efforts to solve our customers’ problems through the utilization of multi-national human talents and to promote the development of global organizations.
The following is the text of the award. (From the official pamphlet)
eftax Co., Ltd, a company in Amagasaki City, Hyogo that provides outsourcing and in-house support of data analysis, and support for the implementation of AI and IoT systems, is aiming to create an organization centered on foreign employees, rather than a system that welcomes foreign nationals into an organization that is basically composed of Japanese employees. As a result of the adaptation of English as the company’s official language and the active promotion of foreign nationals to the management level, foreign nationals are currently leading the engineering team, marketing team, and overseas market sales team. Foreign nationals, including remote workers from Indonesia, Brazil, Turkey, and Thailand, are also a feature of the team. It seems the management system of the company gets complicated in such a diverse organization, however, remote-work and flex-time systems are used to accommodate holidays and cultural events in their home countries, as well as daily religious activities such as prayer. The online drinking sessions, where employees from all over the world gather together to communicate in harmony, have been well-received and have enhanced the sense of unity in the organization.
