JHRS Year 10: Then, Now and in the Future. | JHRS十周年:過去、現在、そして未来へ

Originally written in English

TEN YEARS. That’s how long The Japan HR Society (JHRS) has been advancing the practice of the HR profession in Japan.

Borne out of an idea from a gathering of seven “founding fathers” at a famous steakhouse in Japan, JHRS has since then evolved, transformed and expanded in breadth and depth.

Indeed, JHRS as a community of Japan-focused HR professionals worldwide has come a long way. We would like to believe that all the activities and events we have conducted in the past 10 years have somehow positively impacted on how YOU as a Japan HR professional view and practice your profession; that all the articles we have written for The HR Agenda (now celebrating its 6th Year Anniversary in this issue) have raised the bar of HR journalism in Japan and have facilitated the exchange and development of the HR body of knowledge that affects and influences the practice of HR in Japan; and that all the connections and relationships we have forged with you and our partners in the past decade will continue to become stronger in the next decade or so.

 What have we achieved together?
  • 1,200+ registered members
  • 50+ JHRS-hosted events, courses and seminars
  • 200+ people attended JHRS-hosted events
  • 60+ JHRS-partnered events, conferences and seminars as a supporting organization and/or as a media partner
  • 10+ partnerships and alliances with domestic and international HR associations
  • 23 themes and 290+ articles written for The HR Agenda Magazine

The journey continues…

Have we reached our destination? Absolutely not. Far from it. There is still much to be done and to strive for.

From our end, in the next 10 years, we would like to do the following:

  • Reorganize the JHRS Board of Advisers and Management Committee. Send me an email at if you are interested to be considered.
  • Conduct annual to bi-annual JHRS Conferences. Contact us at if you want to become a sponsor or speak at these conferences.
  • Launch JHRS HR Awards and Scholarship Fund.
  • Launch Japan HR Certification System (in English and Japanese) and Japan Payroll Professional Certification System (in English and Japanese).
  • Get “Special Interest NPO status” for JHRS.
  • And many more...

However, we would like to hear from YOU. What would you like JHRS to become in the next five or 10 years? What programs, advocacy or services you need that JHRS can help you with? How would you like to be involved in making JHRS a thriving and positive force of change to further advance the HR profession in Japan? Get in touch with me at and we can start from there.

But for now, cheers to you and to all of our members, partners, supporters and friends. Thanks for being part of our journey for the last decade and we hope you will be there with us in the next 10 years and beyond.
