Tokyo Mobility Summit

  • 05 Sep 2019
  • 08:30 - 18:00
  • Tokyo American Club 2-1-2 Azabudai, Minato-ku Tokyo, Japan 106-8649


Why Tokyo, Why Now?
Aging populations, declining birthrates and overall talent shortages are posing challenges to businesses around the globe. In Japan, where a relatively small population drives the world’s third-largest economy, these converging forces are particularly acute. Japanese business leaders are seeking innovations and solutions to bring the much-needed talent in, while simultaneously continuing to develop and grow their global influence and reach.

Why a Summit?
The Worldwide ERC® full-day event in Tokyo will bring perspectives from industry, academic, HR and government agency sources together to inform attendee discussions and allow delegates to collaborate on current challenges and opportunities. Product demos, information and programming will focus on such core workforce-related areas as:

  • The immigration, tax, wage and labor implications of new points-based, highly skilled and other types of visa programs designed to recruit a wide variety of global talent.
  • Educational and language-proficiency level requirements, length of stay, renewability and eligibility of/impact on accompanying family members.
  • How AI and robotics are capturing and analyzing data, driving efficiencies and augmenting uniquely human skills.
  • The use of social media, digital marketing, connectivity and learning tools to attract, develop and retain young talent and foster greater cross-border collaboration.
  • Cultivating and engaging global, inclusive teams that blend management styles and practices, span four generations, build future leadership pipelines and close gender, sexual orientation and pay gaps.
  • Successfully integrating an influx of foreign talent into an historically homogenous society and bringing renowned Japanese management, innovation and business practices into other countries: the cross-cultural, language, and social implications.
