What do you need to know about hiring in Japan?

Imagine that you have to deal with a succession issue at your Japanese operation.  What common pitfalls should you avoid?
Any succession at a group company is of strategic importance. Sooner or later you might be faced with such a situation in Japan, when the current Managing Director is heading towards retirement or if his performance is severely lacking. This webinar helps you to prepare for such a situation and make the right decisions when the time comes.

The webinar is targeted to EU companies that have operations in Japan. It also provides useful insights to EU companies that are newly considering entering the Japanese market and need to hire that crucial first person.

Registrations are open until the 12/09/2014 included.
