Our 6 Step System for Recruiting in Japan

Step 1 – Getting Started:  We establish the type of candidate you are seeking and your desired timeline for hiring. It is important that we take the time to get to know your company. We learn about your culture, goals, and work with your management team to align the recruitment search with your company’s objectives.  

Step 2 – Talent Research: After understanding your company’s goals for the talent search, we begin targeting Japan’s top talent sources and identifying the best candidates available. 

Step 3 – Early-Stage Interviews: We begin interviewing from our refined list of potential candidates to narrow the options to only the best matches for your open position. Our team then develops a final candidate pipeline and meets with your executive team to discuss which prospective employee will be the best fit for your company’s goals. 

Step 4 – Evaluating the Top Candidates: After performing comprehensive background checks and character references, we finalize our candidate evaluation process and bring our recommendations to the client’s executive board.

Step 5 – Candidate Selection: Once we have met with the executive team and decided on the best candidate for the role, we help the client with the salary and benefit negotiations before organizing and submitting the official offer letter to the candidate. 

Step 6 – Continued Support: Our team at GlobalPEO will continue to work with your executive team to deliver support for employee and team evaluations, development, and performance improvement throughout the lifespan of your partnership with the employee. 

The Japanese Recruitment Method

The labor force in Japan is limited and doesn’t show signs of growing in the near future, so finding talented employees can be a challenge. Of course, there are plenty of skilled workers in Japan; the challenge is simply finding them. 

With GlobalPEO’s global recruitment service, you can get advantage of our in-country recruiting support and deep network of connections in the Japanese market. 

Hiring + Onboarding Japanese Employees

Although Japan’s Labour Standards Law does not require a specific format for creating employment contracts, all employers must share specific terms and conditions for employment in writing with their employees. This can easily be done by providing the employee with a copy of the company’s “work rules.” All employees hired with GlobalPEO’s Japan employer of record service are covered under a locally compliant contract for employment.  

Make sure to always clearly state the employee’s benefits, vacation time, termination requirements, and compensation in Yen currency. 

Japanese culture dictates that their employee’s are given a fair, safe, and peaceful workplace. It is the responsibility of the employer to provide annual doctors appoints to all employees to ensure that they stay in good health. If the work has the potential of being hazardous to an employee’s mental health, the employer may be required to also provide regular stress checkups. 

Employers operating within or employing workers in Japan are required to provide 10+ days of annual paid leave to all employees after completing their first 6 months of employment. 

Benefits of Outsourcing Recruitment in Japan

If you decide to handle your recruiting and hiring in Japan on your own, we recommend staying informed on the current local laws pertaining to recruitment, payroll, and employment.
