I have long held one thought close to my heart:
That no matter how much times may change, the capabilities and possibilities of people do not. My strong belief is that at the heart of everything, is people.
Our company name, "Human", comes from the conviction that all hopes and possibilities start with people.
There is a saying in Japanese that says, "To act for the world, act for people." When people act on behalf of each other and use their abilities for society, is this not the best way to achieve self-actualization?
Our modern era continues to change, creaking forward on rusty wheels. The era of lifetime employment and advancement by seniority has crumbled down. We have arrived at a rapidly aging society supported by apathetic youth. However, my closely-held thought is a truth that shows no sign of wavering. We must continue to ask ourselves what is the real meaning of our mission statement: "To act for the world, act for people."
It is free expressions uninhibited by existing boundaries. It is a spirit that plays, a spirit that learns. And at the heart of everything, it is an excitement that comes from acting for people, and acting for society. That excitement becomes a motivating force, and it serves to carve an unwavering conviction in our hearts that through our business, we can help make a better society.
Representative Director and Chairman
Human Holdings Co., Ltd.
Society and economy change like a whirlwind daily in Japan. And people's attitudes towards life are changing greatly, and wavering. Many people have started asking themselves, "What should I be living for? How should I be living?" People wish that they could find a clear purpose and live a fulfilling life full of vigor and self-confidence.
By learning or working, people gain the ability to define themselves within society, allowing them to gain self-confidence and pride, and live a life full of joy and excitement. This process is one that we at Human term, "SELFing" -- the process of establishing oneself.
Through "SELFing", we are able to find the brilliance within ourselves and work towards our goals and dreams. This gives us the motivation to increase our skills and knowledge further to achieve even greater goals and dreams. Human continues to add new energy in the circle of symbiosis and growth between people and society through the realms of education, employment, and welfare.
Through "SELFing", each individual person begins on a path to a more fulfilling life, contributes to the development of businesses and organizations, and finally works to change society for a more rich and beautiful future. By supporting individuals on the "SELFing" process, Human as a whole also achieves "SELFing" of itself as an organization. We will continue to strive for our goal of a society that freely draws out people's potentials.
