The In 2018, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry announced “New Basics for Working People” with an eye on the era of 100 years of life.
LA, which supports corporate human resource development, offers a business basic ability diagnostic test “Biz SCORE Basic” for working adults in order to contribute to the improvement of the working basic skills. This time, when the number of examinees exceeded 50,000, we conducted a survey of the basic business capabilities.

Looking at the results of 55,456 examinees over the four years since the start of the business basic ability diagnostic test “Biz SCORE Basic”, it was found that the score tends to decrease with age since the late 20s. In this survey, the score after the 40s was lower than the score under 24 years old, but this is based on a systematic basis of business skills compared to the current employees in their 20s and 30s. This may be due to the fact that there were few opportunities to learn and that “learning by looking at the boss’s back” and “learning with experience” were common.
In addition, the fact that professionals such as accounting and consultants were ranked first in all categories may be due to the fact that the questions being asked are more directly linked to the daily work compared to other occupations.
However, the basic business skills are the power that is required regardless of age, job title, job type, or industry. Even with knowledge and skills that are rarely directly linked to daily work, such as “finance / accounting”, which has the lowest average score among all themes, it is necessary to form a career in an era of rapid change. In order to continue, it is necessary to acquire a wide range of knowledge and skills.
It is also important for employees to take the initiative and acquire skills, but in companies and organizations, “Provide opportunities to learn things outside of work”, “Experience diverse work and broaden knowledge” ” There is no doubt that there is a need for efforts to improve the basic business skills of employees, such as promoting self-study.
