Work skills.

A survey by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare asked 3,153 companies employing 100 or more workers what sort of human resources they desired most to help them deal with the era of globalization. Sharing first place, both with 6.8 percent, were people who were up to date on new product development technology, and those who could develop, manage and apply systems. The remaining top 10 were rounded out by: staff with skills in customer development technology (6.6%), IT business applications (6.3), familiarity with international standards (2.7), foreign languages (2.5), personnel management (2.1), overseas matters (1.6), and new accounting procedures (1.3).
