On January 18, 2017, CIGS held a workshop of Mr. Jun Kurihara, Research Director of CIGS and Ms. Hilary J. Holbrow, International Research Fellow of CIGS. This is the summary of speech.
Abstract of the Speech
Japanese firms increasingly seek out recruits with international experience and foreign language skills. Employers hope that these workers, popularly referred to as "global talent," will help to make Japanese companies more internationally competitive. However, global talent are not a homogeneous group: global talent includes foreign workers from Asia, the West, and other world regions, as well as Japanese workers with international experience. This presentation will consider the diversity of "global talent" at Japanese firms. It will explore how the experiences of global talent in Japanese firms differ by national background. It will point to problems with a one-size-fits-all strategy for managing global talent, and suggest solutions for better managing the internal diversity of global talent.
