Hire English Speaking Employees in Japan

Challenges of Hiring in Japan

It has always been a challenge to hire bilingual staff in Japan, and that challenge is even more difficult for foreign businesses. Japan has been experiencing a labor shortage for decades now, and English-speaking staff is more in-demand than ever before. For foreign businesses, the language gap often presents a problem, and the need for online interviews can make it hard to identify the best candidates.

In today’s job market, a Japanese recruitment agent will often find candidates in exchange for 35-40% of their annual income. In the end, this system is quite expensive and ineffective. Not only does it incentivize a job recruiter to present underqualified candidates at inflated salaries, but it also creates a conflict of interest. Within the confines of this system, candidates are selected with a minimum of research, often resulting in a poor match.

While this system is extremely beneficial for the job recruiter, it leads to high employee turnover and puts the employee in a situation where their salary doesn’t have much room to grow in the future. This can make employees feel unmotivated and cause their employers to feel like they aren’t getting a good value for the money they are paying. At JMC, we believe that hiring talent shouldn’t be based on a commission; we believe the right candidate for the job is the one with the right qualifications.
