Message to StudentsOur country's labor force is on the decline against the backdrop of our shrinking and aging population. Retirement is being extended out. Occupations come and go much faster with the uptick in technology innovation. Thus, it is assumed that people who have to make career change will increase and the so-called “Japanese employment practices,” which was the mainstream in post-war Japan for a long time, where workers stayed at the same company from their entry into workforce immediately upon graduation through retirement, with lockstep compensation and lived on pension income after retirement, need to be revisited. Going forward, we must establish a flexible employment system / working style that enables various people with diverse background to adequately contribute their respective capabilities based on the circumstances from time to time. As you are the next generation that will lead the future, I look forward to exploring with you the ways employment and occupation ought to be, which should allow each one of us to enjoy a fruitful life.
