Hays: Japan Executives Value Personal Assistants with Professionalism, Responsiveness, and Adaptability

Hays Office Professionals PA/Secretary of the Year for 2012 announced

Tokyo, Nov 22, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - Professional attitude, speedy response, and adaptability are the top three traits executives in Japan seek in assistants, according to Hays Specialist Recruitment Japan KK ("Hays").

These are also qualities possessed by Tomoko Koike at Beckman Coulter and Yuko Mitsui at Almatis, the Hays Office Professionals PA/Secretary of the Year 2012 respectively for Japan's Kanto and Kansai regions. The winners have been recognized with a trophy and a one night stay at the Conrad Hotel in the Kanto region and the Hotel New Otani in Kansai. The awards were presented to the recipients just in time to mark Japan's Labour Thanksgiving Day, on 23 November, which is a national holiday commemorating labour and production.

"Personal Assistants (PA) are the backbone of most organisations - they support not only their managers, but the whole team. We created the Hays Office Professionals PA/Secretary of the Year Awards to promote and reward these exceptional professionals," says Christine Wright, Hays Operations Director, Asia.

Finance Controller at Almatis Steve Siao, who nominated Yuko, said she exemplifies the qualities needed for a successful PA. He commented, "Her motivation to learn has expanded her original roles and responsibilities - she has grown to become an important resource for our Frankfurt headquarters, as well as Japan."

Beckman Coulter President Noriaki Kawata, who nominated Tomoko, said she has helped to build a great rapport with business contacts domestically and abroad. He said, "Much of my success is thanks to her. She proactively supports me and the senior managers who report to me, and her hard work ensures that everything always runs smoothly."

According to Hays, executives also seek PAs who anticipate their needs, are proactive, make informed decisions and support them in all aspects of the business.

"We see that soft skills such as communication are vital. We have also noticed that although PAs are not expected to have overseas experience, they do need to be able to translate English to Japanese and vice versa, given the increasingly global nature of workplaces," says Christine.
