The en world story

One thing has remained constant in en world’s journey from recruiting services start-up in 1999 to one of Japan’s leading talent acquisition and management firms today. We have always looked beyond the traditional narrow focus on hiring transactions.

The en world way is to partner long-term with clients and job-seekers to support in the most comprehensive way possible the process of identifying, attracting, retaining, and developing global talent for global organizations in Japan.

Since becoming a group company of en-Japan in 2010, we have been able to innovate at an ever-increasing rate, expanding our range of services and finding new ways to make employment relationships more productive and fulfilling. We believe there is no more important calling, and no better way to drive business success and enhance careers.

What sets us apart: Total Talent Engagement

In a time when traditional recruiters struggle to keep pace with changes in the employment landscape, en world offers a new approach.  We call it Total Talent Engagement. It works before, during and after the recruitment process, connecting job seekers with employers to create more effective and rewarding employment relationships.

For job seekers, Total Talent Engagement offers assistance in crafting a long-term career strategy, an exceptionally broad range of employment opportunities, and continuing support after employment to help make the new relationship a success.

For employers, Total Talent Engagement is smarter about understanding who can do a job, where those people are to be found and what will motivate them to move. And by supporting companies in taking better care of people after hiring, we help reduce turnover and the need for future hiring.
