PERSOL is Japan’s top ranked HR services provider. Whilst continuing to meet the job placement and outsourcing needs of over 35,000 client companies in Japan, PERSOL has also been expanding rapidly in Asia Pacific. The acquisition of several large HR service providers in countries like Singapore and Australia has increased the financial contribution of their overseas business from 3% to 30% in 5 years. At the same time, it is also transforming the way PERSOL work with their internal and external stakeholders across their businesses in the region.
Although the number of expatriates dispatched from Japan is not large, the number of opportunities to work in English while living in Japan has increased dramatically for both Japanese and non-Japanese alike. Given the urgent need to develop human resources who can manage effectively across both local and overseas operations from Japanese HQ, PERSOL has committed to ensuring that their people have the necessary English language training to contribute to their mission: a world where everyone can “Work, and Smile”.
