Nissan Motor Co. is moving to promote all contract workers in Japan to full-time positions as the automaker’s push to cut fixed costs gives it more room to invest in its talent pool.

About 800 contract workers will become full-time employees from April, Azusa Momose, a spokeswoman for the company said, confirming an earlier Bloomberg News report that said it would impact people at Nissan’s plants, research and development centers and head office in Yokohama. Nissan will also abolish its system of hiring contract workers.
