April Dream Project
End the system of full-time employment. Towards a world where hiring professional freelancers is the norm
*Solective is seriously aiming to prove the value of “freelancing” and realize a society where professional freelancers drive the Japanese economy. *
This press release is a dream sent out by a business operator who sympathizes with the April Dream project and wants to make April 1st a day full of dreams, hoping to make them come true soon.
* We support April Dream, which aims to make April 1st the day to share your dreams. This press release was published by Solective Co., Ltd.
This is Dream. *
The words “freelance” are often associated with somewhat negative words such as “unstable,” “unreliable,” and “someone who can’t get a job.” However, a survey published by Solective at the beginning of this year revealed that highly skilled professional freelancers are sought after by many companies and are active in the workforce.

If we remain ignorant of these realities and remain trapped in groundless stereotypes, there will be no benefit to workers, companies, or even the Japanese economy as a whole. That is why we are seriously aiming to prove the value of “freelancing” and create a society where professional freelancers drive the Japanese economy. * Breaking away from the system of full-time employees is the key to speedy business growth *

As a result of this promotion, companies are required to promote their business faster than ever before. On the other hand, a shortage of human resources is a serious problem in many workplaces. Due to the custom of hiring general staff and an evaluation system that does not emphasize skills, it is difficult to develop highly skilled
specialized personnel within the company, and the number of such personnel is overwhelmingly insufficient. However, even if you try to hire new full-time employees, the hiring process and onboarding will take time.
Under such circumstances, professional freelancers, who run their own businesses based on their skills and expertise, are gaining in presence. In an actual survey conducted by Solective, *
More than 50% of professional freelancers have multiple specialties, approximately 90% are employed in positions that support the core of a client’s business, and approximately 75% are ready to work in one week*
The high-level reality has come to light one after another*. Advanced companies that are aware of this fact are already hiring professional freelancers for new businesses or areas in which they have no knowledge, and are rapidly growing their businesses.

* The basis of future organizations is “the necessary skills, in the necessary amount, when needed” *
Solective, which supports business growth with professional human resources, has proposed to many companies how to create organizations that incorporate professional freelancers, and has achieved optimal matching. There are countless projects that I have contributed to, including strategic planning for listed companies, new business development for overseas luxury brands, and large-scale service renewals for startups.
Our company is no exception, and there are very few full-time employees within Solective. Many of our members are professional freelancers with a high level of expertise. The benefits of having the flexibility for organizations to secure the necessary skills, when and in the required amount, according to the phase of the business, are * The ability to secure high-level human resources and move forward with business with a sense of speed within a limited budget*
. Because we feel this firsthand, we are confident that making organizational management that incorporates professional freelancers the norm will be a catalyst for the Japanese economy, which has been stagnant due to membership-based organizations. .

* “Sollective” that quickly realizes happy collaboration between companies and professional freelancers *
At Solective, we achieve optimal matching between companies and professional freelancers through the following three pillars, and also support professional freelancers to focus on their core business and maximize their value.
1. * “Sollective”, a platform that connects companies and
professional freelancers *

We have achieved a high level of matching between the two through screening. A business model that only mediates project-type cases, not task-type cases, and does not take intermediate margins from freelance fees. Since it supports both Japanese and English, there are many overseas companies and global human resources.
2. * Business tool for freelancers “FreelanceOS(R)” *

An all-in-one back-office tool that includes contracts, invoices, timesheets, project management, customer management, etc. necessary for freelance business operations, available in both Japanese and English.
3. *Freelance community*

Under the direction of a dedicated community manager, we operate events and message channels where freelancers can connect and consult with each other. Community-only benefits available for certified professionals
