Why Japan’s Tech Firms are Embracing Remote Global Teams

With the fierce competition for talent, particularly for IT professionals, employers in Japan need to have a holistic approach when it comes to attracting candidates.

Employers have started offering flexible working arrangements as part of their recruitment and retention strategy. PayPay, Yahoo Japan and Mercari have all introduced remote work plans, to name a few.

Remote work presents a new opportunity for companies to expand their talent pools beyond geographical boundaries, even outside of Japan. They can now offer opportunities to people regardless of where they are based.

Because of this, companies can focus on hiring candidates based solely on their qualifications.

It is critical for Japan-based companies to remain agile and reevaluate workforce strategies. The need to adapt to the new ways of working is apparent, and it calls for companies to find viable solutions to compensate for the shrinking local talent pool.
