This concept acts as the axis that brings together and illuminates Recruit's "Value Creation Model," and the inter-relationship between ideas, business models, and culture.?In addition, explanations of strategy and tactics were provided for three strategic business units (HR technology (Global Online HR SBU),Media and Solutions (Media and Solutions SBU), Staffing (Global Staffing SBU)).
