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.
As healthy life expectancy becomes longer, we constantly review various values in relation to work, such as rewarding job, response to diverse working styles and reeducation.By supporting each of working individuals through their life, we will create a society where one can live an affluent life through work.
We contribute to the improvement of productivity of individuals, organizations and society by actively making investments in the areas where robots or AI can replace human workforce. At the same time, we identify and provide the jobs in which value can be created only by human skills in order to create society where individuals live happily through work.
We propose new styles of working and employment in the era that many people live to be 100 and contribute to the improvement of work engagement for all individuals, and thereby realize “Work, and Smile”.
We make priority investments on the activities that contribute to the increase of work engagement for all working individuals supported by PERSOL.
By asking “What is better job?”, “What is better style of work?”, and “What is better life?”, from a viewpoint of a “working individual”, we create and support diverse work that will shape our future.
More specifically, we provide work opportunities and insights best suited to respective life stages, aptitude and ability of individuals. We serve as partner that helps working individuals not only when finding a job but for lifelong career, additionally providing them with support for matters other than work.
We also provide individuals with opportunities to study so that they can have enough career options to choose from on a continual basis at all life stages.
By making the best use of technologies and promoting digital transformation, we propose new styles of working and employment.
We build the infrastructure for analyzing and utilizing the enormous personal and corporate data we accumulated in the past, and promote digitization of platform businesses including temporary staffing and job placement to further upgrade those businesses.
In addition, we create new businesses for future by reconsidering the conventional values we provided from a perspective of utilizing cutting-edge technologies.
We will establish a management system to provide values from Japan, which already faces many work-related challenges ahead of other nations, to the Asia-Pacific region.
We will contribute to the solution of social challenges around the world to realize our Group Vision “Work, and Smile.”
We have five business domains: Staffing SBU and Career SBU that provide services of optimally matching people and organizations, Professional Outsourcing SBU that contributes to enriching society with the strength of people and technology, Solution SBU that creates new services with cutting-edge technology to open up possibility, and Asia Pacific SBU that provides services of optimally matching people and organizations in countries overseas.
