In 2016, when the number of employees reached 100, in order to support further growth of the business, I thought that it was necessary to verbalize the intentions and thoughts of the management team and permeate them throughout the organization to increase the sense of unity among employees.
Therefore, we clarified our own values that we would like to continue to cherish, centered on designers, and created a new vision, values, and culture centered on the mission we set at the time of our founding: “money forward. life more forward.” * has been formulated. Based on this unique corporate culture, we have established a new system to reward members who embody the culture, and we have implemented measures to spread the culture, such as conducting recruitment activities that emphasize cultural fit, to expand the circle of empathy among members. The business and organization have expanded rapidly, and even now, the number of group employees has reached nearly 2,000.
*Money Forward’s mission, vision, values and culture:
In this case, when a startup company is rapidly expanding its organization due to its success and is about to lose sight of the company’s attractiveness, employees will voluntarily take action to review the corporate culture and support management so that it can work systematically. This is the case.
There are many well-known cases where founders use their unique charm and power to sustain growth over the long term. There are not many known cases of success in activities that involve restructuring corporate culture. Such cases are considered to be healthy and desirable as a way of corporate organization, and should be widely shared as cases worth spreading to society.
Comment from Keiko Kanai, Vice President of Culture, Money Forward, Inc. [Image 2
We are very happy that our efforts to develop our corporate culture, which is our identity, were highly evaluated at the 10th anniversary of Money Forward’s founding. Confronting the concept of “corporate culture” that has no correct answer, we believe that this initiative will surely create the foundation of the future company, and we have been conducting company-wide infiltration activities. I think there will be many obstacles to overcome in the future, but I would like to continue to question and create together what it is to be a money forward, aiming to be a company that can move the world forward. increase.
