Creating innovation

Nurturing innovators

Recruit began in 1960 as an advertising agency specializing in job placement ads. Since introducing our new business model centered on newspaper advertising and the field of human resources, we have kept our operations up to date with the times and continually grown by creating new value for society.

Recruit Group's business model uses its solid relationships with clients and users to stimulate and meet their latent needs, increasing their ultimate satisfaction by providing new opportunities that bridge the gaps between these needs and what the market offers, thereby eliminating disatisfaction, inconvenience and anxiety.

Recruit Group believes that the entrepreneurial spirit and extremely powerful sense of responsibility of each employee support this business model and serve as the source of new value, in other words, innovation. It is part of our corporate culture for each of us to ask ourselves "Why are you here?" viewing this society in front of us. One of the characteristics of Recruit Group is that we provide young employees with a wide range of large-scale project opportunities depending on their enthusiasm and good ideas. Recruit Group, as "an arena" for mutually realizing each individual's potential, offers diverse opportunities for drawing out the entrepreneurial spirit and powerful sense of responsibility from our employees.


New Business Proposal System, Creating New Value in the Group
Ring is a new business proposal system for Recruit Group company employees.
The new business proposal system has created a number of businesses, such as Zexy, R25 and Study Sapuri. It began in 1982 as "RING", was changed to "New RING" in 1990, and in 2018 underwent a renewal and became "Ring".
Any Recruit Group employee can freely participate, and cover topics, not only related to Recruit's existing areas of business, but in any and all business fields.
For Recruit, Ring is the embodiment of the Group's management philosophy "creation of new value," and is an opportunity for employees to suggest their own new business ideas and make them a reality.



Commending Innovations Throughout the Company that Contributed to Improving New Value
"FORUM" is a large-scale event for sharing the most outstanding and latest insights in the Recruit Group.
For Recruit to achieve "global No.1" status, each person must seek ways to enhance their professional skills, share novel and versatile initiatives with the whole company, and make "creation of new value" and "acceleration of personal growth" their goals in the Recruit Group. Divided by specialty, the 4 groups (FORUM for client relationships, FORUM for IT and other technologies, FORUM for product development and improvement, FORUM for business foundation) are the settings for presentations on selected subjects and panel discussions with guest members, and are widely shared within the Group.
