Human Resource Consulting
Your company’s HR policies and programs create the framework for your operations.
They send important messages about what your company values, and what kind of
relationship it wants with its employees. Shaping your policies and programs to
convey the right messages requires a knowledge of North American human resource
management practices and of cultural differences between the US and Japan.
Japan Intercultural Consulting combines knowledge of Japanese human resource
practices and organizational behavior with broad-based experience in all facets
of North American human resource management. We also draw upon our Japanese
language capabilities to communicate effectively with Japanese staff and
headquarters in Japan. These capabilities enable us to assist clients in
building a human resource management infrastructure that supports their business goals.
Some of the goals we can assist clients with include:
- Improving the company's ability to recruit and retain high-caliber employees
- Enhancing employee morale and productivity
- Improving relations between Japanese and American staff
- Designing cost-effective human resource management initiatives
