The Director Bank has been designed to optimally facilitate criteria-based searches for the board talent that best fits with your company’s needs, from among a pool of director candidates who have demonstrated their dedication by receiving training in advance at one or more of BDTI’s day-long intensive director training courses.
- All Corporate Participating Members are eligible to register as “Corporate Users” in order to use the Director Bank, free of charge. All users must agree to abide by the Registration Rules in order to use the Director Bank. Please note that even if you are a registered user of BDTI’s Discussion Forum, you will be required to register separately for the Director Bank.
- Individuals who had received BDTI one-day training courses at no charge, after getting BDTI’s approval register with the Director Bank by filling out the online information form for “Individual Users”. BDTI’s Director Bank system automatically separates this information into two separate categories based on the input cells:
(A) “General Information” about that person’s skills, experience, titles, responsibilities, or background, which does not identify him or her personally. (If correctly input, this will not include the names of companies or individuals).(B) “Detailed Information” that can be used to identify the Individual User personally, including his or her name, address, contact information, and career history, or any names of companies or individuals. To supplement the resume which BDTI’s system will automatically generate from the online input form, one can also upload a PDF resume.
- All corporate registers after getting BDTI’s approval eligible to use the Director Bank as “Corporate Users” in order to search for director or kansayaku candidates at their own company, group companies, portfolio companies, or client companies (for instance, in the case of recruitment firms). The flow of the search process is as follows:
(i) Corporate Users search and view General Information, which does not identify anyone personally, in order to find director candidates with the attributes that they seek.
(ii) When a Corporate User has interest in a certain Individual User, it requests and receives Detailed Information (a resume) through the Director Bank system.
※ Each Corporate User may only receive a certain number of resumes per year, which at the outset shall be no less than thirty and will increase over time. BDTI does not inform the Individual User in question that a Corporate User has received this information.
(iii) The Corporate User then decides whether to contact that person based on the resume information it received in step (ii). If it decides that it would like to make contact, it freely and directly does so, without any intermediation by BDTI, and both sides consider whether to schedule an initial meeting or interview.
※ At this stage, BDTI is not involved in the process at all. Under the Registration Rules , the Corporate User itself is required to be the first party who directly contacts the Individual User.
