We will set income for employees having digital skills mainly in such fields as artificial intelligence and security according to their professional levels and market value.”
According to the company, they are currently in the process of revisiting their recruitment system where new graduates are to be hired in mass once (1) every year.
They said that they look to complete and implement the new personnel system before the end of 2019. In addition to that, he said that some employees could receive a yearly income of ¥30 million up to ¥40 million.

Other Japanese companies’ high pay for I.T. talents
Fujitsu Ltd. is not the only company who is willing to pay millions of yen to technologically-inclined workers who can compete and represent their company. NTT Docomo Inc., back in April, began a recruitment system to be able to compensate up to ¥30 million to its employees.
Since the start of this year, Sony Corporation increased the wages of its employees who have groundbreaking skills in selected areas for up to twenty (20) percent.
NEC Corp., on the other hand, will be joining the trend as they held an announcement to increase the additional annual income of over ¥10 million yen starting in October. This new system, as per the conglomerate, is also going to count on new hires if they were able to achieve excellent and cutting-edge research results in an academic standpoint.
Just like how I.T. giants are doing to secure their spot to be on the top, different Japanese companies are on the move to acquire highly-skilled people, specifically, I.T. talents, who can lead the business that is positioned as the growth area.

China’s Huawei, however, according to reporters, are willing to pay up to about 2 million Yuan (¥30 million per year) even to new hires in 2019 so long as they can provide sufficient and reliable researchers and results to the company.
