Status of Recruitment

We said, "Hitowa, Mugenno Energy. (People have limitless energy.)" Under the slogan, we are recruiting people who can challenge themselves and create new values together while respecting diversity. In the hiring process, we make it a priority to ensure that employees do not make any mismatches after joining the company by providing internships and contact points with close senior employees so that they can see what we really are. We are also working to raise employee motivation, improve the corporate culture, and expand the system to improve employee retention.
