Honki no Shushoku
Supporting young people’s desire to work with a job-placement assistance program
In recent years, we often hear the words, ‘corporate social responsibility,’ or CSR. Many companies in Ginza are also taking on initiatives to solve social challenges. In this corner, we present a series for introducing those Ginza-based CSR activities. As the third part of this series, we spoke with Masafumi Echizenya about the “Honki no Shushoku” job-placement assistance program offered by Recruit.
