■Overview of “Career Scout System”:
As a “working well-being creation company,” Persol Group strives to create opportunities to work by providing diverse ways of working and learning opportunities, expanding the choices and freedom of work for each individual, and expanding the happiness of individuals and society. That’s what I’m aiming for. Our human capital policy is to become an organization in which diverse human resources embody “well-being at work” and promote value creation.As part of this, each employee has a sense of career ownership and We support people to work in their own way (*). Up until now, we have provided a variety of opportunities, including a system that allows employees to experience work in other departments within the group, various career training programs, an open recruitment transfer system, and the challenge of overseas transfers. As a new initiative to support employees’ career development, we are introducing a “career scout system” that allows employees to be directly scouted by other departments within the group and transferred. This system will begin operation in October for approximately 25,000 domestic employees. When employees register their skills, background, future career prospects, etc. in the internal system, they can receive scouts from other departments. You can decide whether to apply or not while communicating with the scouting company, and if you apply, you will enter the selection flow for each position. After that, if you pass the screening, you can choose to transfer. Regarding inter-group transfers, we have previously provided opportunities for people to take on transfer challenges through our open recruitment transfer system, “Career Challenge,” but by introducing a direct recruitment transfer system, we will be able to choose from an even wider range of options. , employees will be able to independently choose their career. We believe that this will foster a sense of career ownership among employees and further improve their motivation and engagement with their work. *: According to a study by Persol Research Institute, “If you have a high level of career autonomy, your motivation to learn will increase by 1.28 times, and your sense of job fulfillment will increase by 1.26 times.” Reference:
