don’t let talent scarcity stand in your way

According to our Talent Trends research, 84% of employers in Japan say that talent acquisition is one of their business leaders’ top priorities. It’s no surprise why.

Talent is how your company innovates, grows, cares for customers and sells. People are how your organisation realises its purpose. They are your competitive advantage.

At the same time, the skills gap and talent scarcity are standing in your way. In fact, 86% of human capital and C-suite leaders in Japan say the skills gap is worsening and will lead to even greater challenges in the future. This is significantly higher than the global average. Most (81%) say that the retiring workforce is having a big impact on their business, and the same percentage (81%) believe they’re facing greater competition for skills this year.

With one of the lowest unemployment rates globally, the Japanese market is practically at full employment. Where do you find the talent your business needs, and how can you attract and retain them?
