十二月 20 2016 Published by under EZTABLE Thailand

Nowadays, doing business across different nations is increasingly common

throughout the world. Many countries pay attention to Thailand as an attractive

market in Asian, and there are a number of foreign businesspeople would like to run

business here. EZTABLE is one of them! So I think telling stories of the places, people

and cultures will make you know EZTABLE Thailand a little better.

EZTABLE Thailand is located downtown Bangkok. Speaking of the name "Bangkok" in

Thai, it is what Thai people call "Krung Thep" or "Krung Thep Mahanakorn" in formal.

Although everyone knows that Bangkok is the capital city of Thailand, not everybody

knows the actual name of this city yet.

The full name of Bangkok is:

Krungthepmahanakhon Amonrattanakosin Mahintharayutthaya

Mahadilokphop Noppharatratchathaniburirom

Udomratchaniwetmahasathan Amonphimanawatansathit

Sakkathattiyawitsanukamprasit

This translates to:

City of angels, Great city of immortals,

Magnificent city of the nine gems, Seat of the King,

City of royal palaces, Home of gods incarnate,

Erected by Visvakarman at Indra's behest

It is the longest city name in the world!!!

To know more about Thais…

Nearly 70 million populations, Thai society consists of people who share a rich ethnic

diversity, mostly influenced by two great cultural systems of Asia, Chinese and

Indian, and come from Thai ethnic groups as well. More than 90% of Thais believe in

Buddhism as it is a national religion. Many traditions and beliefs of us stem directly

from Buddhist principles.

In term of working environment, Thailand team makes a workplace feel like home.

Here, people welcome you as you are, and we try to be better together everyday. As

I have to coordinate and work with colleagues, I mean with all major operations,

who are quite dissimilar in many aspects such as nationalities, languages,

educational backgrounds and work experiences, it might have the limitations

between different cultures as it shapes our values, behaviors and communication

styles. To learn and understand each other is a key to make works flow smoothly and

effectively.

Language:

Though we speak and write Thai, English is more common as a second commercial

language because there are many foreigners visit Thailand. It often used and

understood widely in cities, specifically in Bangkok. I am sure this is not going to be a

problem working with Thailand team. However, so-and- so ask me how to be polite

of speaking Thai, I have to say just saying “krap” (for men) and “ka” (for women) at

the end of almost every sentence. This will show your respect to the listener. For

example, when you bump into someone on the street, saying only “kor tod” (sorry) it

would be slightly rude. But if you say “kor tod krap/ ka” to them instead, it sounds

better. Remember that both “krap and ka” are untranslatable, but they are

absolutely indispensable in speaking Thai.

Characteristic and Behavior:

Regarding Thai cultural background, we defined ourselves as collectivists, so the

social harmony and relationship is necessary. We are taught to depend on one

another and help others. If we do good deeds to other people whenever they need

assistance or support, we will receive good and be helped in return. It is the same as

the way we work. We put emphasis on relationships between people and prefer

working as a group. For instance, whenever we have to decide something, we would

like to have a decision making process as a whole team, not only by individual. And

this is good because everyone agrees with the same points which make us achieve

goal as we expected together.

Thinking and Communication Style:

Thais believe in “kreng jai” which implies like caring for others more than caring

oneself. Actually, this concept means to avoid any clash that might be hurt others’

feelings and lead to negative results. That is why we always focus on the importance

of face-saving, concern about what others think, and do not want to create personal

conflicts in the relationship with people. Due to working in the international

company, Thailand team has adapted ourselves in order to share ideas and express

what we think, what we like or what we do not want, but still in an appropriate way

and well-mannered with everyone.

All of these are the cultural identity and elements that are uniquely Thai. Keeping an

eye and mind open will make you enjoy learning the attitudes of other cultures, and

also discover the way to accept people and get along with them without troubles, or

at least helping us minimize barriers between each other and work together

successfully.
