Sustainability

Our People

From our foundation, a diverse employee base has been the source of our value creation. Betting on our people's passion and ideas is our competitive advantage.

Value Creation Cycle

It always starts from within

When all of our employees are empowered to foster their passions, they will be motivated to invent innovative ways to better support our users as well as the society they live in. When job seekers and employers are happy with our products and services, our businesses can succeed, and we can then share the success with shareholders. We believe that we can sustainably grow our corporate value through aiming to prosper together with all of our stakeholders.

Commitment to Our People

Achieve gender parity across all employee levels by 2030*²

From our foundation, Recruit Group's diverse employee base has been the source of our value creation. Betting on the passion and ideas of our employees is our competitive advantage. Thus, we will roll out further initiatives to promote a diverse and inclusive workforce that in turn fosters innovation.

The Company has specifically accelerated its initiatives for gender diversity by setting group-wide targets as a corporate strategy. As such, the Company is committed to achieve an approximately 50% representation of women in senior executive roles, in managerial positions, and of total employees within the Company by FY2030*²

We will roll out further initiatives to promote a diverse and inclusive workforce that in turn fosters innovation. As a first step, we will focus on gender parity. While at the same time, we will encourage and support subsidiaries to address other aspects of DEI reflective of each country, area and business.
