Our Mission

Creating a next-generation society where each individual can engage in active, meaningful work

Recruit Works Institute is dedicated to achieving our vision of a next-generation society: one where all those who want to work can do so comfortably and meaningfully.

Our Vision

We believe the next-generation society we aspire to is defined by these six interlinked and interdependent elements, which combine to form an environment where individuals can engage in active, meaningful work.

  • A society where people of diverse backgrounds can succeed just as they are
  • A society where people can obtain decent and sustainable work
  • A society where people are proud of their work and feel it is worthwhile
  • A society where people can find work that fits their current conditions
  • A society where people can start fresh again and again in their careers
  • A society where people take ownership of their careers
