Our Business Model

The business model of Recruit Group

Ever since our foundation, Recruit Group has sought to act as a meeting place that brings together individual users and business clients, with a focus on services in the field of life-events and lifestyle, such as Housing & Real Estate, Beauty, Dining and others. By providing a common platform through which users can find the service that best meets their needs, and business owners can connect with their ideal customers, we can facilitate the best possible matches for the mutual benefit of both parties.

Faster, Simpler and Closer: Matching through Technology

Thanks to the Internet and the mass adoption of smartphones, we now have a wealth of information at our fingertips. This also brings with it the need for increasingly sophisticated solutions to facilitate the best matches. At Recruit Group, we are actively integrating new technologies to ensure that our business model continues to meet the needs of a rapidly changing society through the creation of opportunities that enable every individual to shine.

Our Group Structure

Recruit Group consists of three autonomous Strategic Business Units (SBUs) and Recruit Holdings. This structure allows Recruit Holdings to focus on the operation of a holding company, and also enhances the corporate value of each SBU by enabling faster execution of business strategies.
