Good, Ceremonies suck! Especially here

Yeah. As long as they can keep their jobs, and preferably start from home, I don't see this as a big deal. There's too much emphasis on entrance and exit (graduation) ceremonies as is, from nursery schools to retirement.

They usually look like the scene from Attack of the Clones, a celebration of a culture where not the best candidates get jobs.

What a wonderful news!

A great opportunity to kill this middle age tradition looking like a military enrolment.

Hire people in January, March, July, or whatever month.

Wise move.

Glad I had my company IT get us what we needed way before this issue using GoToMeeting 3D conferencing. Telework has successfully worked for the majority of employees with production, employee retention high, and creative business models/projects etc have gone skyrocket. We will be adding 100 new employees this year alone with a projected 50 more by end of year. Thank you old fashioned traditional corporate models for your lack of keeping up with tech as we swallowed your revenue.

So has Sony shut all of its factories in Japan, if all of its employees are working from home? I don‘t think so!

This article is about the welcome ceremony for employees who have already been hired and are entering the company, not about the yearly job hunt for a company (就職活動).
