Basic Approach to Corporate Governance
As a “General trading company dealing in labor force” that provides personnel recruiting services as well as AI/RPA, we promote a vision of becoming a “Labor force solution company” under the corporate philosophy of “tapping into dreams, ideas and passion to create a better society.”
To realize our vision, it will be essential to ensure effective corporate governance. We aim to improve our medium/long-term corporate value by enhancing management transparency and efficiently running the company under a robust corporate governance system, while fulfilling our responsibilities to all stakeholders.
Our corporate governance system, which consists of the Board of Directors, corporate auditors and the Audit & Supervisory Board, is aimed at simultaneously achieving sustainable business operations and enhanced audit and internal control functions, while working to effectuate a corporate management that is able to swiftly address changes in the environment. We have adopted this system because we believe that in order to make effective use of our managerial resources, and maintain sustainable business operations, it is preferable for some of the board directors to be involved in important business executions. At the same time, the system should, from the perspective of ensuring management soundness, preferably enable non-executive directors to supervise executive directors, and corporate auditors to audit business management.
We have appointed independent external directors as non-executive directors and established a support system, such as enhancing prior briefings of the agendas of the Board of Director meetings, so that such board directors can exercise their abilities and knowledge to the fullest extent. We have also established an optional Nomination and Compensation Committee as an advisory body to the Board of Directors. The committee deliberates and reports on matters concerning the nomination and remuneration of board directors in response to requests from the Board of Directors. A majority of the members are independent external directors to ensure the impartiality of the committee.
With respect to audit functions, we ensure sound business management by having each corporate auditor, including independent external directors, attend the Board of Director meetings and other important meetings, and perform effective audits in cooperation with independent auditors and the Internal Audit Department. In addition, we have established a system that can swiftly address changes to the management environment by introducing an executive officer system to expedite decision-making and ensure its smooth execution.
We are determined to continue our efforts to pursue healthy and transparent business management policies and further improve and enhance our corporate governance in the future.
