Recruit is proud to announce a regional revitalization agreement with Saito City, Miyazaki Prefecture, Saito Chamber of Commerce & Industry and Saito City Sanzai Shoko-kai signed on October 13th, 2023. The agreement, aimed at promoting regional retention and employment, seeks to revitalize the region through collaborative efforts. As part of the company's efforts to create employment opportunities in numerous areas across Japan, this marks the 25th instance of cooperation with local governments and organizations and the fourth in Miyazaki Prefecture since signing a similar agreement with Kawaminami Town, Miyazaki Prefecture, in February 2020.
Background and Objectives
Population decline is a serious issue in regional areas. One potential solution is to disseminate compelling information about available job opportunities so the region can better compete with urban areas and retain its population. This approach not only helps to address the problem of population decline but also contributes to the overall revitalization of the region.
Given the limited progress in the digitization of recruitment operations in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and regional areas, we believe that our Air BusinessTools, a business and management support service, and our expertise in human resources solutions can play a crucial role in promoting migration and regional settlement while contributing to the revitalization of the region. By leveraging our resources and know-how, we can help SMEs in the region to digitize their recruitment processes and attract talent to the area, which in turn can create new opportunities for employment and economic growth. We aim to support the regional revitalization of Saito City by facilitating local business employment and contributing to the region's long-term sustainability.
Details of Implementation
We aim to improve the recruitment process for businesses in Saito City by offering our AirWORK Applicant Tracking System (ATS) platform, a recruitment management service that enables businesses to easily recruit free of charge. This service includes creating recruitment websites and disseminating recruitment information, which will help increase job visibility in the area. We will also actively promote our services to businesses and provide support to improve their recruitment capabilities.
To help promote our activities, Saito City, Saito Chamber of Commerce & Industry and Saito City Sanzai Shoko-kai will organize "Recruitment Improvement Seminars” and introduce businesses to us.
Our ultimate aim is to revitalize the community and promote employment in the region by enhancing job information and opportunities.
