Recruit Holdings’ Efforts to Support the People in Ukraine, Including a Donation of €1M to Humanitarian Efforts

Mar 15, 2022

Recruit Holdings Co., Ltd. (“Recruit Holdings”), on behalf of the Recruit Group, is donating a total of €1 million to international organizations for humanitarian aid.

We stand in solidarity with the people affected by the conflict in Ukraine as they fight for their lives and freedom. We are deeply shocked, saddened and concerned by the growing humanitarian and refugee crisis. We advocate for peace and an immediate end to needless human suffering.

Given the unfolding situation, Recruit Group and our operating companies are taking various steps to support the people affected by the conflict in Ukraine.

・Recruit Holdings’ total of €1 million in donations will benefit The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

・Recruit Group operating companies are also making different types of contributions to humanitarian efforts. RGF Staffing is donating to Giro555, a Dutch relief organization, to support Ukrainian communities in need. Several Recruit Group operating companies are encouraging and matching employee contributions. For example, Indeed opened up a humanitarian giving campaign for Indeed employees to support Ukrainian efforts.

・Recruit Group operating companies have suspended business in Russia and added new content moderation. Indeed has disabled its Russian site. It has also removed all jobs from Russian military/state-owned enterprises. Glassdoor human moderators are now conducting enhanced reviews of all user content submitted to Russian employers sanctioned by the U.S. government. Moderators are rejecting all reviews featuring propaganda, political references or advocacy-related references. Additionally, Glassdoor is removing company descriptions and business information on profiles of Russian employers sanctioned by the U.S. government.
