Japanese recruitment giants are expanding
According to the 2013 annual report from Ciett, the international confederation of private employment agencies, in 2011 Japan had the second-highest number of private employment agencies in any one country at 20,000, behind China’s 56,000, and accounted for 17% of total global industry sales, second only to the US’s 23%.
Japanese recruitment companies are now starting to make inroads into western markets. One of the Japanese market leaders, Recruit Co, has over 22,000 staff across its brands, compared with the three largest staffing firms globally: Adecco, which has 31,000; Manpower with 30,000; and Randstad — 29,000.
Circle Operations and Finance Director Steve Taylor said "It is no surprise that the Japanese are doing well, however it is essential that we remain on the forefront of technology and strategy in order to ensure that we stay ahead. Forward thinking, and responding to market changes is the key".
