Abstract

This paper discusses the deployment of human relations in Japan, especially issues regarding the transformation of labor relations and those in the management system. Conditions for the deployment of human relations varied significantly between two nations. In Japan, human relations methods were deployed in response to both the conflict between labor and management, which was a result of the regal recognition of labor unions and the growing labor movement, and the need to modernize management. As a result, human relations methods based on labor relation reforms in the United States were promoted. However, in general, many factors influence the introduction of human relations. Therefore, this paper discusses the deployment of human relations with regard to environmental factors such as labor relations, the worker participation system (the codetermination system), management values and traditions, and market structure. Furthermore, based on these discussions, it also analyzes the Japanese characteristics regarding the deployment of human relations.
