CYBERSECURITY, DATA ANALYSIS & IT INFRASTRUCTURE WILL CONTINUE TO LEAD TECH HIRING IN JAPAN SAYS HAYS 30 Sep 2020
The COVID-19 crisis has transformed the digital technology landscape in Japan, with more professionals working remotely and more businesses ramping up their digital capabilities as part of a seismic shift in traditional working culture. This shift has caused a surge in hiring within the digital technology sector, particularly in areas that have proven increasingly important in facilitating Japan’s digital transformation.
In recent years, the healthcare landscape in Japan has been experiencing positive developments in terms of deregulation and increasing the speed to market for new treatments. This movement has been accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic along with efforts to service the medical needs of Japan’s ageing population.
The impact of COVID-19 has brought unprecedented change to the world of work in Japan. As organisations continue to brave against the hurdles presented, it is vital they understand that the expectations and perceptions of professionals towards them have also been transformed by the crisis. In order to attract and retain the very best talent in the new era of work, businesses must adapt their approach to attracting, engaging and motivating professionals, says the CEO of recruiting experts, Hays.
More companies in Japan are moving to merit-based appraisal systems, with Hitachi being the latest major name to join the likes of Fujitsu Inc and Nomura Holdings in moving away from seniority-based pay. This new system is seen as a way to not only boost wages but also improve employment practices and wage-setting systems in an effort to attract more talent and stimulate the labour market.
