The Lifetime Employment System. 終身雇用

Shusin-koyo literally means lifetime employment. 

終身雇用とは、生涯にわたって雇用を保証することです。

Under this employment system, young employees get lower salaries at first.

この制度下では、若い従業員は給料が低いです。

The Lifetime Employment System. 終身雇用

But they are guaranteed permanent employment, so they can work without worrying about being fired.

この制度下では、従業員は定年に達するまで解雇されることなく、安心して働くことができます。

As they get older, their positions and salaries are raised automatically.

年を取るにつれて、地位も給料も上がります。

Instead, employees are expected to be loyal to their employers or companies. 

ただしその代わり、従業員は、会社または雇用主への忠誠が求められます。

The Lifetime Employment System. 終身雇用

The merit of this system lies in the development of human resources. 

この制度の利点は、とりわけ、人的資源の能力開発にあります。

Employees work for their companies for a long time, so they can experience various job careers until they get retired. 

同じ会社で長期間にわたって働くので、職種の変更ができます。従業員は生涯にわたって、さまざまな業務を経験できます。

 

After the World War 2, Japan made a remarkable success in economy.

戦後日本は経済的に目覚ましい発展を遂げました。

These workers made it possible to sustain Japan's high economic growth. 

日本の高度成長を支えたのはこういう人材でした。

The Lifetime Employment System. 終身雇用

However, today, when the high economic growth came to an end, it seems hard to maintain this system. 

しかしながら、高度成長はもはや望めない今日、終身雇用を維持することはむつかしくなっています。

Instead of recruiting new staff, more and more companies employ human resources of immediate use.

新人を雇うかわりに、即戦力の人材を雇う会社が増えています。

I simply can not say enough about Masaki and his skill as a tour guide. Not in a million years would we had been able to see so many beautiful sights in Kyoto without his ability to move us from place to place, purchasing entry tickets without hassle but also knowing the fastest ways in & out plus the timing of our arrivals & exits were spot on. Masaki & Steve had quite a long conversation about...

Masaki was a very helpful guide. Even before we started the tour with him, he gave us directions to get to Kyoto (as we were coming in on train) and helped me source a wheelchair for my Mum who needed it after she had a fall the day after she landed. He made the whole thing easier. I am glad we had him. He also provided in depth info about Kyoto through information that he put together in a bookle...

“ Excellent choice ”

Excellent
4 months ago Traveler: Sandra -   Tour Guide: Masaki

We experienced a most relaxing yet educational day with Masaki, touring the sites of Uji, home of matcha. Because my husband’s mobility and energy was compromised, Masaki chose this outing for its length and flat terrain, plus he is very atuned to the history there. He was most patient with our challenges yet delivered a wonderful tour.

Excellent and easy communication with Masaki during preparation for the tour. Masaki speaks very good English. He answered all questions promptly and thoroughly and he made suggestions and sent photos of alternative sights to see when one of the places we wanted to go to was not open on the date of our tour. He went out of his way to book us additional services like the rickshaw and a van which wa...

Masaki could not have worked harder. He took us to all of the places we wanted to see and tailored the itinerary perfectly. He is full of knowledge and good humour. We did not simply see the sights, we learned about the history of Zen Buddhism, meditation practice and breathing and Japanese philosophy. After the tour was over, he sent us over 70 excellent photos that he had taken during the day, w...
