Japanese v. US Customer Practices and Perspectives

From the Paper:

"Japanese companies have notoriously had a superior attitude and alignment with customer service. This is due largely in part to the perspective approached by their companies as compared to those of the United States of America. Japanese hold harmony as a social ideal, patience as a personal virtue, and hierarchy as an essential organizing principle. Americans, in contrast, hold freedom as a social ideal, action-orientation as a personal virtue, and equality as a fundamental organizing principle. (Linowes 23) This creates a vastly different situation. In America employees are difficult to train, and must benefit from additional work or are not particularly willing to invest their time and effort. Japanese businesses however are able to count upon the social pressures established to keep their employees producing at maximum levels."
