Post M&A Analysis is extremely important for the success of the new organization after the merger. Both organizations need to be assessed and employees bench-marked against each other as well as professionals in the market. The demands of the new organization may require development and/or replacement of professionals. Strategic Consulting Japan is experienced with supporting post M&A here in Japan.
We offer corporations employee career transitional support when organizations undergo corporate restructuring. Japan has a culture of job-for-life, and one of the highest suicide rates in the developed world. We have experience consulting with professionals, and supporting them to re-transition back into the workforce. Organizations often engage with us to offer this service to their employees as a responsible way to manage the restructuring process. What is not known by foreign organizations is that when professionals lose their jobs in Japan for whatever reason, they often do not even tell their families or friends, the journey is lonely and extremely tough on them emotionally. We are skilled at supporting these professionals through these difficult times.
Over the past 10 years, Strategic Consulting Japan has developed a thorough reference checking process. Our clients advise us that our reference checks save them over 6 months of management assessment, e.g. they immediately know the strengths and weaknesses, and can therefore manage their employee effectively from day one. Should you require 3rd party detailed reference checking, please contact us.
All of our consultants and employees undergo internal data privacy and data management training, and without exception strictly adhere to Japan's privacy laws.

All employees of Strategic Consulting Japan are required to attend the annual consulting training as required by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, and strictly comply with Japanese Government policy changes that are introduced through these sessions. We take these policies seriously to do otherwise would put our clients, candidates and business partners at risk.
