Japan has been a hard market to crack due to its loyalty culture
Thursday 23 Mar 2017 Author: Daniel Coatsworth

Japan is a tough market for recruitment agencies because individuals are made to feel guilty if they seek a new job. There is a strong loyalty culture and employers love to play the ‘loyalty card’ if anyone hands in their notice.

Robert Walters (RWA) says it has taken years of hard work to persuade individuals in Japan to have the confidence to switch jobs. It has now cracked the market, as evidenced by a 22% rise in net fee income for 2016 for Asia Pacific to £117.6m.

Japan is Robert Walters’ largest business in the Asia Pacific region.
