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
  • Creating an environment in which employee lawsuits are less likely to occur
  • Assisting in the integration of acquisitions

Areas in which we can offer guidance include the following:

  • Performance evaluation systems --developing performance evaluation systems and training managers in their proper use.
  • Job descriptions --helping companies develop job descriptions that are accurate and effective.
  • Compensation and benefit programs --designing total compensation plans that provide realistic rewards and recognition.
  • Employee relations --counseling managers on how to handle specific employee relations issues.
  • Retention programs -- helping companies identify the factors that promote turnover and develop strategies for minimizing them.
