Japan’s labor market is rapidly changing. Due to a decreasing population, a changing industrial structure, and technological advancements, values such as lifetime employment, seniority wage systems, and working long hours will most likely begin to erode. I see this as a chance for our country to adopt new working styles and shift towards more efficient workforce productivity. Our goal is to use this opportunity to create a labor market with fluidity and variety. It has always been difficult for workers to go from limited-term employment (contract or temporary employees) to unlimited term employment (regular employees), resulting in a stagnant labor market. We have thus made it our mission to create a market in which people can freely switch between working styles at any stage of life–from contract employee to regular employee, or regular employee to contract employee; from part-time to full-time, or full-time to part-time. But the mission cannot be accomplished by a single company or service. To be successful, we must maximize the collective capabilities of the PERSOL Group. That is why we merged to create a new brand: “PERSOL”.
The PERSOL Group’s most significant feature is that it focuses on the working individual. The future will be filled with opportunities for positive people who study hard and constantly try new things. Supporting such people, nurturing their potential, and offering them greater choices in life: that is our passion. As people grow, they learn how to overcome challenges and develop the ability to solve their own problems, which in turn creates company growth. We believe that we are helping create this kind of positive cycle. Not only that, we also aim to become the most significant brand in the Asian market. We hope that Japan will absorb Asia’s energy of constant growth and reach overseas to learn new things. Understanding others through personnel exchange to forge a mutually beneficial relationship may just be the key to world peace.
Aiming to become an indispensable part of Japan, of society, and of the world, we at the PERSOL Group will continue moving forward with the slogan ”Work, and Smile” in our hearts to establish a society in which each and every working person can do just that.
