Changing Recruitment Practices in Japanese Companies

This paper examines recent recruitment practices to determine whether Japanese companies have adapted to the changing global economic environment. A literature review combining company surveys and government related statistical data was used. It was found that many large companies have adapted recruitment processes in varying degrees to deal with the changing economic environment. These changes include varying the number of hires and diversifying hiring conditions. Although many Japanese companies are adapting their recruitment processes, they still appear resistant to change their overall recruitment strategy.
