Business Philosophy

We shall provide the best personnel management by
considering our clients’ next steps from their point of view.

*Personnel management is comprised of systems put into place so that employees are motivated to work.
In other words, it includes accurate payroll accounting, rapid processing of insurance documents, drafting lawful employment policies and other regulations,
building fair human resource and wage systems, and organizing training systems.

  1. We will not make you wait for our response.
    Specifically, we promise that we will answer the phone within two rings, and if being put on hold is necessary, you will never be on hold for longer than 10 seconds.
    We will reply to your emails within 6 hours of receiving them and will make an effort so that you never have to explicitly ask us for an update on your situation. (*1)
  2. We will quickly and accurately process your legal documents regarding labor and social security.
    Specifically, regarding letters of resignation and continuous employment benefits, we will process the paperwork within 3 business days of receiving your information and will send the deliverables within 2 business days upon completion. (*2)
  3. We will always be on your side concerning our work.
    Specifically, if you have a matter of urgency or a schedule change, we will work to solve your issue even if your contact person is unavailable. We will be thorough in our reports, communication, and consultations so that we can complete work to your satisfaction.
  4. We will be detail-oriented in our payroll accounting, and ensure accuracy in our calculations.
    Specifically, we will create a monthly accounting checklist and an original checklist for each client that we can reference as we complete our work, regardless of the scale of our contracted payroll operations, to prevent human error as best we can.
  5. Our information security management system (ISMS) will be regularly revised and improved upon in order for us to fulfill these duties.
