Confidential Executive Search

Confidential & Critical Search Japan

Confidential Search Specialization

  • Strategic Consulting Japan G.K. specializes with Confidential Director-level Executive Search.
  • Replacing a failing executive is an extremely important task, and equally important is to ensure the potential replacement does not find out he/she is being replaced.
  • Stealth and internal security is important throughout the search process to keep the market quiet.
  • Only after thorough screening do we present the career opportunity to the best candidates, additionally all potential candidates are required to sign an NDA.

Why Confidentiality is so Crucial

  • Japan does not honor "At Will" contractual clauses, so if a Director finds out he/she is being replaced, the company would be liable for a large severance package (approx. 2 years).
  • Despite under-performing, the current Director is managing your business, however if he/she finds out they are being replaced, that motivation evaporates quickly, and your business could be in real trouble.
  • Internal morale can also have a negative impact on your business, and you could lose valuable members of your organization as a result of uncertainty or market feedback.
  • It is also important to not alert your staff that a major change is happening with your Japan operation; Japanese are averse to change, so a new leader needs to be introduced appropriately to maintain trust and motivation within your Japan business.
  • If a stealth approach is taken, you can take your time to scour the market thoroughly to find the right person to build your business.
  • Additionally, it is extremely important to not alert your clients or competitors that a change is eminent. There are many obvious reasons why confidentiality is required, now you need to be sure the Search Firm you've selected can effectively execute a confidential search.
