Abstract

What changes can be observed in the labour market? What is special about Japanese-style human resource management in the low-growth era, and what are the responses by Japanese and German firms? The structure of Japanese labour market is gradually changing in terms of both supply and demand. The book considers the distinctive features of Japanese human resource management, and examines the continuity and changes in employment patterns, such as the expansion of flexible types of employment and specific innovations in Japanese HRM.
