Japan Enterprise Strategy of Human Resources Management User Perception and Needs 2016
This IDC study takes a look at the low birthrate and aging population issues that are growing more serious in Japan causing concerns over securing workforce in the coming years and increasing the complexity of efforts in globalization and measures to improve productivity every year. From 2015 to 2016, companies in Japan are required to address HR-related systems that also incorporated management perspectives in the appropriate care of personnel for the next generation and management of specific personal information, such as My Number system, stress check, and the law to promote the empowerment of women. IDC takes these factors into consideration when studying enterprise workforce and HR strategies and actual IT utilization. This study shows that participation of the management, such as the highest person responsible for HR (CHRO/CHO), in supporting efforts is low; and these efforts are usually promoted by the HR department than the management in larger companies. The result also shows efforts, such as recruitment management, are not necessarily handled by IT. However, it is also clear that various IT implementations are required in streamlining these efforts, including recruiting, education and appropriate personnel utilization, and workforce analytics as measures to cope with a workforce that is diversifying and growing more fluid. "The latest IT trends, such as human resources big data, are gaining attention. However, evaluation indices and stages of initiatives in companies are truly dispersed. Thus, the knowledge that can be applied to all companies today is limited and individual efforts are required. As shown by companies that continue to improve their performance, it is vital to step up workforce and human resources–related efforts as strategic spending is essential in order to increase competitiveness in the future. Therefore, user companies should take into account management and business perspectives, examine workforce strategies, and build an organization that will not lose its substance; and IT suppliers should support next-generation efforts through cloud solutions and the trend of moving away from partially optimum system," says Yoko Motai, software and security market analyst, IDC Japan.
