Abstract :

Each nation has own corporate issues that relates to nation’s corporate style. According to research by OECD, Mexico is the highest rate of average working hours annually in the world (“Hour worked,” 2017). It is 2,255 hours per worker in annual. Since hour in a year is 8,760, people in Mexico are working about a fourth part of a year. Assuming that workers do not need to work on weekend, then hours in a year that workers need work should be around 6,240 hours that it flexibly changes by the year. People in Mexico are working at least 8 hours daily. Claire (2015) stated that long working hours will lead to inadequate sleeping hours, and it causes insufficient working performance in research. For Japan, Japanese corporate management is sometimes argued as an issue. For example, workers in Japan increase their salary based on their seniority. It is not sometimes considered their actual ability, instead of that; company more considers their career and experience. This kind of Japanese traditional working system more tends to be applied by old company in Japan. Since Nintendo has an old history, these management implications are more applicable. Therefore, this case will be about Japanese-traditional-style management strategy of Nintendo.
