Few Professionals Have High TOEIC Score

According to the results of a Nihon Keizai Shimbun survey on business skills, while almost 70% of Japanese business professionals are interested in obtaining professional qualifications in the future, more than half currently have none. Of the 46% with qualifications, only 4% listed a score of 730 points or more on the TOEIC among them. The survey also showed that "93% of companies have systems in place to aid employees in obtaining qualifications, and that many companies use qualifications to determine differences in wages and rank."
