Changes of Corporate Names of Three Subsidiary Companies—Tempstaff, Intelligence and Intelligence Business Solutions—From July 2017, the new corporate names will be: PERSOL TEMPSTAFF, CO., LTD., PERSOL CAREER CO., LTD. and PERSOL PROCESS & TECHNOLOGY CO., LTD.
The trade names of Tempstaff Co., Ltd., Intelligence, Ltd. and Intelligence Business Solutions, Ltd.—three companies affiliated with the comprehensive personnel service provider Temp Holdings Co., Ltd. (Head Office: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo; President and CEO: Masamichi Mizuta; hereinafter “Temp Holdings”; URL: https://www.persol-group.co.jp/)—will change effective July 1, 2017.
The new names of the companies will all be prefixed with the PERSOL brand. Tempstaff will become PERSOL TEMPSTAFF CO., LTD., Intelligence will become PERSOL CAREER CO., LTD. and Intelligence Business Solutions will become PERSOL PROCESS & TECHNOLOGY CO., LTD. By increasing the recognition of the new brand, we aim to solve social issues in employment and labor through making the most of the collective capabilities of the group. We will keep “Tempstaff” as a dispatch service brand and we will also maintain our principal service brands including the career change service “DODA” and the casual job recruitment information service “an,” both currently operated by Intelligence.
■Background: Unite as the “PERSOL” Group, aiming to further exercise our collective capabilities to solve social issues together.
Since the establishment of the personnel dispatch service Tempstaff in 1973, our group has expanded its business domain and the geographical area of its business to meet the diversified needs of the labor market. In 2008 we established the holding company Temp Holdings Co., Ltd. Subsequently, we acquired shares in the design and R&D company JAPAN TECSEED CO., LTD., as well as Intelligence, Ltd. which operates the career change service “DODA” and casual job recruitment information service “an,” developing the group into the current network of 95 companies in Japan and overseas, capable of providing services through its approximately 500 offices worldwide. Currently we not only offer personnel dispatch services, we have significantly expanded into a wide range of business domains such as providing support for new graduate and mid-career employment, casual and part-time employment support, and IT outsourcing and design development.
Amid an increasingly complex labor and employment market, in July 2016 we created a new group brand “PERSOL” and adopted a policy of tackling social issues by utilizing the collective capabilities of the group. We aimed to go beyond the corporate image of a simple dispatch business, and increase recognition of the group as an extensive and comprehensive personnel service capable of providing optimal services to customers in a wide range of businesses.
With the upcoming name changes that will prefix three of the group’s core companies with the group brand, we aim to make the most of the collective capabilities of the group with our companies under the same banner.
■Future Developments: Considering further name changes in the group in line with the group’s business strategy
Since the introduction of the group brand in July 2016, PERSOL RESEARCH AND CONSULTING CO., LTD., which provides research and consulting services in connection with “work” and “organization,” and PERSOL TECHNOLOGY STAFF CO., LTD., which is expanding in the IT dispatch business, have started as new companies with the PERSOL brand. In April 2017, JAPAN TECSEED CO., LTD., which is expanding its business in undertaking the outsourcing of design and R&D services for automotive and electronic products, will merge with DRD CO., LTD. to form the new company PERSOL RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT CO., LTD.
We are considering further trade name changes in line with the group’s business strategy in order to increase the recognition of PERSOL.
Origins of the group brand “PERSOL”
“PERSOL” is a word coined to express our aim to solve (SOLUTION) social problems through the growth of people (PERSON). “PERSOL” expresses our aspiration to support the growth of working people and create a bright future.
