Background of JACHRO

Accelerating Globalization and Changes in Business Environment

Due to the advance of digital technology business services have been increasing rapidly and the expansion of the borderless competitive environment including those in also emerging countries, the industrial structure is undergoing major changes. Furthermore, the labor market has undergone a major change, such as a change in population dynamics caused by a declining birthrate, an aging population and the rapid increase of foreign employees including overseas bases.

Worldwide, as the multi-polarization with emerging countries progresses and the coexistence of various values is required, capitalism itself is transforming into new capitalism that emphasizes intangible value. In this trend, the promising young generation will have new values and lifestyles.


Needs of new HR strategies to foster and promote innovative “Human Capitals Management”

In order to overcome such changes in industrial and social structure and to provide new value to the market constantly, it is necessary for an organization to transform itself into that with continuous innovation. Unfortunately, the lifetime employment that has supported the era of high growth age and the Japanese-type management system represented by seniority is already causing malfunctions, all managers feel that causing the changes in the new society, in values and in the industrial structure is the top priority.

In order to accomplish this corporate transformation, it is necessary to create a flexible and highly specialized organization that creates innovation, and for that purpose, it is needless to say that making "human” configuring those organizations is the most important. The management resources "human" are among the most important times.
