Careers in foreign-owned firms in Japan with Hiroshi Ono

Thursday, October 4, 2012   19:30 - 21:00

Speaker:
  • Hiroshi Ono

Hiroshi Ono will examine how macro-level global forces are shaping the behavior of firms and of individuals in the Japanese financial sector, with particular focus on the increasing influence of foreign firms. These firms bring with them employment practices that are more market-driven and less socially embedded compared to the Japanese status quo. The co-existence of the foreign and the domestic in the Japanese labor market provides a fascinating test bed to examine how local firms adapt to global pressures, and how workers navigate the changing institutional environment.
