Marketing Events Labour reforms delayed as Prime Minister faces resistance in Japan***** (Oct. 18, 2013) Japan’s government has delayed key labour market deregulation, as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe faces resistance to a core part of his growth strategy to revive the world’s third-biggest economy, reports Bloomberg. This decision comes swiftly on the heels of the Prime Minister’s pledge this week to create a virtuous cycle of higher employment and spending. Fixed-term employment contracts may be extended to 10 years from the previous five within special economic zones under proposed new regulations. Other changes, including lifting restrictions on working hours for whitecollar workers, will not go ahead, according to the Nikkei newspaper. Freeing up the labour market is crucial to the “third arrow” of Abe’s so-called Abenomics policies to shake up industry and lay a foundation for sustained growth. Relaxing employment rules in certain areas or for some companies would be “unacceptable,” the head of the Japanese Trade Union Confederation Nobuaki Koga said yesterday after a meeting with politicians and business leaders.

Workforce Management Software Cost Impacting Market*** (Oct. 7, 2013,/PRNewswire/) International market research firm Research and Markets has announced the publication of their "Global Workforce Management Software Market in the Retail Industry 2012-2016" report.

The global WFM market in the retail industry has also seen the emergence of cloud-based WFM solutions. However, the high cost of implementation could pose a challenge to the growth of this market. According to the report, one of the main factors driving the market is the increased investment from the retail industry in developing countries, which is due to the increase in the purchasing power of people in non-Western countries, compared to people in other regions. Further, both domestic and international products are being adopted in various developing courtiers. Further, the report states that one of the main challenges is the limitations in network infrastructure in developing countries. HRoot Global Human Resources Industry MarketWatch 2013 32
