Abstract: This paper introduces key aspects of personnel management practices in Japanese companies. Japanese management is first discussed from a historical and cultural perspective. The main characteristics of traditional personnel management practices are then looked at. Finally, recent trends and changes in these personnel management practices are examined. It was found that Japanese companies have adapted their personnel practices in varying degrees to deal with the changing economic environment while maintaining parts of the traditional management system.
