en world's Services Here we introduce en world's recruitment achievements, areas we serve, case studies and frequently asked questions.
Why choose en world?
Hiring talented individuals and making sure they become established within their roles is absolutely essential for implementing management strategies and raising corporate value. To do that, you need a partner who has a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to hiring the right people.
For more than 20 years, en world has been leveraging deep experience in recruitment along with the proprietary talent database that we have cultivated to bring the top global professionals to our clients. The services we offer go far beyond merely introducing candidates. We take the extra step to offer hiring support meant to help new employees settle into and find success in their new roles, all based on understanding the firm's culture and with an eye to sustainable growth over the long term.
en world is itself a global company that has a wealth of diversity with employees of more than 22 different nationalities. At the same time, we are also a thoroughly Japanese company that is deeply familiar with the unique challenges of doing business in Japan. This is why we are able to bridge the gaps in understanding between Japanese branches and the headquarters overseas for foreign capital companies especially where the recruiting environment in Japan is concerned. Our status as a Japanese firm has allowed us to serve as a trusted partner to Japanese companies in their hiring of global talent. In order to act as a role model for diversity and inclusion here in Japan, we continue to tackle various challenges.
enabling success at en world
At en world, we don't see the moment when a candidate starts a new role as the end goal. Instead, when we talk about "enabling success," we're talking about what that candidate will be able to achieve to contribute to the company's success and their own fulfillment in the new role long into the future. If a new hire isn't able to adapt well to a new role, re-filling that role repeatedly may in a sense provide us with more business opportunities, but those would come at a significant cost to the individuals placed into those roles, the employers, and even society at large.
This is why we take care when advising people on changing roles. We disclose the good things about the company along with the not-so-good things about the company to the candidate and work to bridge any gaps after the candidate has been placed into the role. We continue to keep in touch with the individuals we have placed even after they begin their new roles. We continued to advocate for this as the new norm across the recruitment industry.
Total Talent Solutions
At en world, we take our mission of "enabling success" as a base to connect all four of our areas of business (Recruitment for Permanent Employee, Executive Search, Contract Professionals, and RPO) with en Japan's "HR Tech Services" which promote success for candidates after joining a new firm through post-placement follow up, identification of issues, evaluations and education to deliver "Total Talent Solutions" to our clients.
