JAC Group offices
Growing and expanding as a company engaged in the human resource business, we provide services in 11 countries. We promote the creation of opportunities for employment in line with conditions in each country, supporting the sustainable growth of companies and their staff.
JAC Group consists of employees of various nationalities who are assessed on fair, performance-based factors regardless of employee age, gender, or nationality.
In addition, to ensure that LGBT employees can work equally, we have created a work environment where diverse employees can play an active role, such as by making employees in same-sex marriages (common-law marriage) eligible for congratulatory and condolence payments.

Initiatives for the employment of individuals with disabilities
At JAC Japan, we aim to promote and support the employment of staff with disabilities, cultivating an inclusive environment where everyone can work with ease and enthusiasm. (As of February 2021, JAC’s 'Employees with disabilities legal employment sufficiency rate' was 122%). Since 2013, we have been providing employment opportunities at an agricultural farm in Ichihara City, Chiba Prefecture, where employees with disabilities can utilize their individual abilities. Employees purchase the harvested crops at regular in-house spot sales events, sharing the success of staff with disabilities and the joy of harvesting.
To play an important role in “connecting people and companies” it is beneficial for our employees to be healthy. Accordingly, we aim to encourage and support all employees within the Group in becoming non-smokers.
In Japan, our company has been selected by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and the Nippon Kenko Kaigi for recognition under the Certified Health & Productivity Management Outstanding Organizations Recognition Program .
Initiative to address environmental issues through a change in business card material
From June 2019, we (JAC Japan) switched business card material from recycled paper containing used paper to "LIMEX," a material with less environmental impact. We also promote a paperless workplace or the use of "FSC certified paper," an eco-friendly paper that has received international recognition.
In 2020, we removed plastic PET bottle products from vending machines in our offices and switched to aluminum can products.
In order to reduce the number of plastic shopping bags, we distribute cloth eco-bags to all JAC Group employees and promote their use.
The JAC Group plants one tree for every person who changes jobs through our Group companies. This embodies our future vision in which as the seedling grows, the job changer will also flourish in his or her new environment.
In addition to the regeneration and preservation of reforested areas, this activity has led to the promotion of local employment through work in cooperation with local residents. Through this Group-wide initiative, we will continue to help local communities become greener while we work to promote employment opportunities.
