A total of 740 people (number of full-time employees as of October 2022), including 547 professional staff involved in on-site welfare support such as childcare, nursing, and social work, and 193 administrative staff who support activities and projects in the back office. It is the largest organization among domestic NPOs. We would like to inform you that Florence has significantly improved the working conditions of its administrative staff, and has realized the improvement of working conditions for staff that it has been working on in stages since 2016.
Since 2016, we have been gradually improving the working conditions of professional staff. We will gradually improve the treatment of all professional staff by 2022.
At Florence, we aim to ensure that our staff receive appropriate compensation that matches their social achievements. We were able to make improvements.

[Background and aim of improving staff treatment]
Florence’s mission is to “solve social problems that hinder the smiles of parents and children.” I’ve been working on it.
I believe that if our staff, who work hard to achieve these visions and missions and return great value to society in the same way as people working in private companies and governments, do not have a stable life, they will not be able to bring more smiles to society. we think
Since 2016, Florence has been gradually improving the working conditions of staff working in childcare and nursing, with the aim of ensuring that staff receive appropriate compensation commensurate with their social achievements. We have improved the treatment of many staff, including administrative staff and management staff who work in the department.
The word NPO originated in the United States, where people working for NPOs have a social status as professionals with expertise and are well paid. In the U.S. and U.K., NPOs and NGOs rank at the top of the list of popular employers for humanities students.
On the other hand, in Japan, the image of NPOs as “volunteers” and “free” is still strong, and many NPO staff in Japan work in an environment where they are treated worse than ordinary companies. According to a survey conducted in 2015 by the Japan Institute for Labor Policy and Training, the average annual salary for NPO “regular employees” is about 2.6 million yen, and the average annual salary for high earners is 3.7 million yen. .
By raising the salary level of staff to the level of general companies or even higher, Florence hopes to improve the treatment and social status of all people working in the NPO industry, and contribute to the flow of talented people to the NPO industry. I think.
In recent years, even in the investment industry, instead of measuring the social value of an organization with standardized indicators such as profits and shareholder dividends, a framework has been created that enables the disclosure of information on human capital and the visualization of social outcomes. The deaf movement has begun. We also implemented this treatment improvement in order to make it normal for organizations and human resources that provide high value to society to receive social evaluation that corresponds to that.

[Activities of Florence]
Florence promotes social transformation through three axes: business development, policy proposals, and cultural creation, in order to solve social issues in the parent-child domain in Japan.
Starting with the start of Japan’s first visit-type sick child daycare business, we have launched a number of new businesses such as a daycare business for disabled children, a licensed nursery school business, and a consultation support business, and have presented a solution model for the whole country.
At the same time, we are implementing policy proposals and social actions, and updating structures and mechanisms that generate social issues. So far, more than 30 systems have been changed or newly established by Florence.

Welfare and medical professionals, back-office professionals such as accounting and systems, staff engaged in policy entrepreneurship and business model development, and staff engaged in management, fundraising, and promotion, all work together to contribute to society. We are creating new common sense.

[Future Florence]
These activities of Florence would never be possible without our donors, the government and politicians who move policies together, the companies and other organizations we work with, and each and every one of you who participates in society. .
Florence will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2024.
For the past 18 years, we have been working to solve problems in the parent-child field in Japan, but from now on, we will give back even greater results to society, not only for all parents and children now, but also for the children of the next generation. I aim to go We will continue to work with many of you to promote activities that will create new norms in society.
We look forward to your participation.
