In contrast, some companies in the finance and energy sectors said they will curb hires of new graduates. They instead plan to expand mid-career recruitment and improve business efficiency through digitization.

Efficiency? What will happen is those people will be forced to take overtime everyday.

The Ukraine crisis has prompted a climb in commodity and crude oil prices, raising concerns that it may squeeze corporate earnings amid hesitancy to pass on additional costs to consumers.

Kyodo loves to hammer home this point in multiple articles. As if workers undergoing economic hardship should consider the pain of these poor corporate depressed earnings.

Businesses that had been hard hit by the pandemic, such as airlines and the tourism sector, stood out in their resolve to increase recruitment as they explore new ways for growth. ANA Holdings Inc. and Imperial Hotel Ltd. are among them.

Case in point: Airlines and hotels were subsidized by the taxpayer but still laid off loads of staff in the pandemic.

Would people want to return to or join these types of businesses?

they will hire more in the year starting next April 

Here’s the problem…

STOP hiring only in April!

There’s 12 months during the year.

Use them.

Hire and fire people as needed.

Don’t worry about what month it is in the year!m.

Things change in a year.

Adapt, fools!

Why April indeed ?

The needs come and go.

Anyway there are thousands and thousands less graduating students each year on the global marked for the next 20 years at least. So they can't hire more globally in Japan obviously even if they wanted !

Check the pyramid of age.

Manpower may become in very need if digitalization is not happening enough.

Good luck Japan.

While Japan business is doing digitization, rest of the world is going for digitalization.

For information :

Digitalization is the use of digital technologies to change a business model and provide new revenue and value-producing opportunities; it is the process of moving to a digital business.

Digitization is the process of converting information into a digital format. The result is the representation of an object, image, sound, document or signal obtained by generating a series of numbers that describe a discrete set of points or samples.

For Japan, it is switching from hanko and fax, to the internet and excel sheets and more. Lol
