About Us


Working at office

TOP Group has grown from a single office in New York in 1992, to one of the global leaders in Japanese-related talent solutions today.

As one of the first Japanese staffing agencies in the U.S., we started our focus in Finance but quickly expanded to other industries such as Technology, Freight Forwarding, Trading, and Manufacturing.

We have offices in New York - HeadQuarters, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Houston.

We have been expanding to Mexico to assist the Japanese corporations and become the #1 Japanese Recruiting Agency in Central America.

CEO Noriko Tabata

TOP/ Tabata Oxford Personnel LLC. was started in October 1992 in New York City, New York.

Our mission is to create people, companies, and communities.

To discover talents and inner strengths that people are unaware they have. We create people. When good people join a company, it leads to the creation of a good company. We believe it is very important that a good company produces better products and services and contributes to society.

We do not only provide human resources, but also do our best to build the best possible relationship between the company and the candidate, matching their needs. We value the trust and warmth that comes from the personal contact that each of our employees has with both companies and candidates, and we provide support in a variety of ways to address questions and concerns that may arise due to differences in corporate environments and cultures even after a candidate has been introduced to a company.
