Industrial DX (Digital Transformation) is being rapidly promoted around the world, and the shortage of IT human resources is becoming more serious especially in Japan. Meanwhile, India, which is said to be one of the world’s leading IT powerhouses, is attracting attention, and many Indian human resources are expanding their range of activities in the global market. On the other hand, at Japanese companies in Japan, there is a current situation where recruitment is not progressing due to barriers such as Japanese language and cross-cultural understanding.
