Editorial Policy

From FY2016, Recruit Group (the "Group," refers to Recruit Holdings and its subsidiaries unless the context indicates otherwise) has combined its annual report and CSR report into a single report to enable stakeholders to gain a greater understanding of management principle, business strategies and mid- to long-term value creation. In addition to financial information and management strategies that have conventionally been published, this report includes more non-financial information and we have tried to make the report as visually comprehensible as possible by using a rich array of photos and charts.

For cover and title pages, we picked up four works representing "gazing at the future and energy towards it" by the artists who won the annual competition of "Guardian Garden"*1. We would be delighted to have you enjoy the report.

For more details on Recruit Group's financial and non-financial information, please refer to the Company's website.
