In 2011, for the first time, the famous Job Descriptive Index (JDI) family of job satisfaction surveys were translated into Japanese by a team of four esteemed Japanese university professors. This book describes the forward-back translation of the surveys and the potential future of the JDI surveys in Japan once they have been validated. Any multinational Japanese company is herewith invited to participate in the validation of the surveys by offering a survey sample of both its Japan-based and USA-based employees. Once the surveys are validated in Japanese, they will be considered legitimate international surveys and a powerful new scientific set of tools will be available for use in Japan.
