Recruit has expanded its business globally, taking its mission of "Opportunities for Life. Faster, simpler and closer to you." to more than 60 countries around the world. Although we are among a small group of companies competing with some of the global tech giants, our mission-driven approach ensures that we provide value to the world. We aim to utilize the depth of our data in focused areas such as "human resources matching" and "improving productivity of Japanese SMEs." I believe it is important that we earnestly accumulate innovations that cannot be imitated thanks to our hands-on experience and our willingness to take on tedious work, while continuously incorporating evolving technologies. We will continue to create products and services that can make life easier and more convenient, and that make people wonder, "How did we live without them?" If we can contribute to society by doing this, we will have no greater joy.
