Dialogue for Everyone Co., Ltd.

Aiming for society, from November, participating organizations such as the national government, local governments, and companies will join together to participate in the “Japan Reskilling Consortium” that supports reskilling (*) that updates the skills of everyone.

■ Background of participation
Over 50% of the labor force is over 45 years old, and one in three employees of major companies is in their 50s. In April 2021, the Act on Stabilization of Employment of Elderly Persons was revised, and companies are obliged to make efforts to secure employment
opportunities up to the age of 70. We are entering a society where it is normal to work until the age of 70.
On the other hand, only 6.3%* of major companies invest in middle-aged and seniors, and more than 40% of people in their 50s have never attended training*2. It can be said that the efforts to make use of the rich experience of the company in society as a whole are yet to come.
In addition, the middle-aged and seniors who actually work themselves are confused in the career view that it is good to “enter a company” and entrust their career development to the company, and they are not able to take action for career autonomy. Since 2020, we have been providing a career autonomy support program mainly to middle-aged and seniors who are enrolled in major urban companies. I am not confident that I will be able to be useful outside the company because I have only had the experience of working in Japan,” and “I feel vague anxiety about continuing to work at the same company until I retire, but I cannot put down my experience.” The reality is that we hear a lot of voices that narrow their sexuality and hold negative thoughts. For many middle-aged and seniors who face these issues, we provide career training that serves as a foundation for reskilling, and an internship program at a local company that serves as a “test of in-house skills outside the company” before changing jobs or doing a side job. With a strong desire to support opportunities for
middle-aged and seniors with extensive experience to autonomously draw their next career vision and strategically acquire new skills, we have decided to join the Japan Reskilling Consortium. I was lucky enough to participate.
Through this participation, we will accelerate our activities with the aim of realizing a society where it is natural for us to “remove age limits and live as we please.”
