Mid- to Long-term Strategic Policy for 2030

The PERSOL Group will offer much greater value and grow further amid various environmental changes to come in order to contribute to sustainable society. To achieve that, PERSOL has developed the value creation story (mid- and long-term business plan) for the period through 2030.

Value Creation Story

To realize our Group Vision “Work and Smile”, we have designed a cycle of corporate activities and social contributions as our value creation story. We make our promises to transforming society and further sophisticate the accumulated resources of creating values as our strength, which will lead to the growth of our business activities.
As a consequence, we will improve our social and economic values to create new value. At the same time, it will contribute to the achievement of SDGs(Sustainable Development Goals) adopted by the United Nations.

Overview of the PERSOL Group Mid-term Management Plan 2026

The PERSOL Group will offer much greater value and continue to grow amid the environmental changes to come, aspiring to contribute to a sustainable society. In accordance with the Value Creation Story for 2030 (Medium- to Long-term Strategic Policy), we have adopted the PERSOL Group Mid-term Management Plan 2026 as a strategy from FY2023 to FY2025.

- Based on our Corporate Philosophy of Providing Opportunity, Individual Growth, and Social Contribution, we will create better work opportunities for one million people by 2030 by expanding human possibilities as a "Career Well-being" creation company, aiming to achieve the Group Vision, "Work and Smile."

- To achieve this, we have made the evolution into a technology-driven HR service company as the direction of our management and we will operate businesses in five Strategic Business Units (SBUs): Staffing, BPO, Technology, Career, and APAC.

- We will continue to accelerate business growth by continuing to enhance our capability of recruiting people, capability of connecting people with organizations, and capability of designing businesses as competitive advantages of the overall Group, and at the same time, positioning human capital, technologies, and learning as business growth engines.

Who we want to be (what we aim to be like as a company)

Reflecting the power shift of individuals, including employment mobility and the diversification of workstyles and values related to work, we are entering an era when people seek Career Well-being, meaning the happiness felt by a worker through their own work. At the PERSOL Group, we aim to be a "Career Well-being" creation company, which expands the happiness of individuals and society by extending the possibilities of each individual and the freedom of working, aiming to achieve the Group Vision, "Work and Smile."

Goal of value creation

We have set "creating work opportunities by 2030" as the milestone for achieving the Group Vision. Specifically, we have set "creating better work opportunities for one million people by 2030 by expanding the possibilities of people" as the goal of our value creation, which we will aim to achieve.

Direction of management

We are entering an era when the evolution of management through collaborative creation by people and technologies is demanded, reflecting the rapid evolution of technologies. We will evolve into a technology-driven HR service company, which achieves non-continuous growth with products and digitalization by maximizing the intervention value of people as the PERSOL Group's human capital, while at the same time making maximum use of the data and technologies that we possess at the Group.

Competitive advantages and business growth engines

We will strengthen our three capabilities through integrated efforts by the Group, aiming to create better work opportunities.

Capability of recruiting people: Improving the ability to develop digital media and products and increase brand power to achieve customer satisfaction and trust
Capability of connecting people with organizations: Providing better work opportunities by introducing and strengthening technologies
Capability of designing businesses: Responding to diversifying customer needs and expectations by enhancing our ability to design businesses and provide digital solutions

In addition, we have set the following three business growth engines for enabling more powerful growth of businesses by the five Strategic Business Units (SBUs): Staffing, BPO, Technology, Career, and APAC.

- Human capital: Driving value creation by becoming a Group where diverse human resources achieve Career Well-being
- Technologies: Enhancing technology-oriented human resources and organizations to strengthen implementation and utilization in businesses and services
- Learning: Implementing learning linked closely with working, to accelerate the growth of each business

Vision towards 2030

At the PERSOL Group, we have been creating work opportunities by operating various businesses, including job placement and media businesses, based on a temporary staffing business as our founding business.
We are entering an era when workers seek well-being and collaborative creation by people and technologies is expected. In this era, we believe that the PERSOL Group also needs to achieve further business growth and evolution while also adapting to a changing society and improving the sources of value creation it has cultivated to date.
We will create better work opportunities for one million people by 2023 and realize "Work and Smile," by expanding possibilities of people as a "Career Well-being" creation company.

Businesses and finance as an inseparable pair for management

In the “PERSOL Group Mid-term Management Plan 2026,” in order to enhance corporate value, we have divided our financial strategy into three areas: “key financial strategic indicators,” “cash allocation,” and “shareholder returns,” and clarified the targets to be achieved for each.
We will promote management that emphasizes efficiency and balanced cash allocation among business, capital investment, and dividends.
We will strengthen our dialogue with the capital market and IR activities, and will be more proactive in shareholder return.

The following is a response to the request from the Tokyo Stock Exchange in March 2023 for all listed companies on the Prime and Standard markets to achieve cost of capital and stock price conscious management.
