Social Impact

Having a job is one of the most important facets of life for many people. At Recruit, we are committed to making positive impact on society by helping to simplify and ease hiring.

Commitment to Society

Reduce the time it takes for job seekers to get hired by half by 2030 compared to 2021*²

We will contribute to eliminating poverty and economic vulnerability by reducing the time it takes job seekers to get hired. Aspirationally we want people to be able to get a job as quickly and easily as the push of a button.


How to achieve

Help 30 million people facing barriers get hired by 2030*⁴

Job seekers from vulnerable and marginalized communities face barriers in the labor market. These barriers are difficult to remove through improving matching efficiency alone.

How to achieve

We aim to minimize barriers using technology and partnerships to promote inclusive hiring.
