The senior generation in Japan has worked in a lifetime employment system. The bosses of the generation who lived in such an era could not easily leave their employees. When an employee actually said "I wanna leave company", some senior may manage to persuade him to stay at the company and did not receive a retirement notice, which may lead to big problem.
