Japan's Pasona to introduce overseas tech talent for remote work

Staffing company eyes India, South Korea and Vietnam amid lingering COVID curbs

TOKYO -- Japanese staffing service Pasona Group will start introducing foreign workers in the information technology field to work remotely from their countries to Japanese companies, which are suffering from a labor shortage exacerbated by COVID-19 travel restrictions, Nikkei has learned.

Pasona had been introducing hundreds of foreigners annually to Japanese companies before the coronavirus pandemic. About 60% of them lived in Japan, but the rest moved to Japan from their home countries.
