CEO Greeting

Thank your very much for visiting our website.

Well, I think that it would be the least interesting if I would tell you a conventional greeting, so in order to introduce you some of the things that are important to us besides working for customers, let me be a little audacious as to tell you some stories from the time when I was wandering around the world.

When I was travelling in Bangladesh, I met a young boy.
"Where are you from?" he asked me.
"I'm Japanese." I answered.
His face suddenly turned into a glittering smile.
"I like Japan! Really like!" he said.

I felt it very strange that a young boy dressed in worn-out clothes in country that is so far away from my home loves Japan so much.
When I replied "Thank you! ... How come?" he said: ...Read more

A scene from our company information session for new graduates in 2011.

Our company is conducting a recruiting program for full-time employees throughout the whole year.
Be it a new graduate, or a mid-career candidate, we are interested in everyone!

By creating high quality services, we are making efforts to satisfy our customers needs so, that the whole world could became little more convenient place to live.
In order to accoplish that, we are focusing on enhancing our business performance through opening up new markets and establishing new business connections.

We are continously pursuing the enhancement of our service abilities by expanding our workforce. We believe that the original mission of an enterprise is to achieve positive results so that it could continously create new workplaces in order to raise the local employment rate as an important contribution to the society.

The number of new employees hired in 2010: 5 persons
The number of new employees hired in 2009: 6 persons

The way of thinking that is important to us regarding employees. The image of people who we are looking for. Our employment policy.

We, Event21 are seriously performing activities in order to contribute to the society every single day.
To put it simply "contribution to society" is to "make our surroundings happy".

In other words, creating happiness is what "contribution to society" really means.

Event21 has three policies for making the world more happy.
1. Offering services that will make the world more convenient. = Achieving results that make our customers say: "I'm really glad that there is an Event21!"
2. Continously maintaining a balance in the black, paying our taxes without fail. = It will change into textbooks of primary schools, fire engines, hospital supplies.
(A company with a financial deficit couldn't possibly pay the taxes, so how could it be able to contribute to the society.)
3. Sustaining and creating long term employment, establishing a high quality work environment. = Protecting and increasing the stability of the living of our employees and their families, making their lives more abundant.

Profit is essential for all of these. The world couldn't be made happier without profit.
This way, by doing our best in our work every single day, we are contributing to the world society.

Not to change the subject, however、
in the principle(=values, ideas) of Event21, we have the following idiom: "you happy, we happy"
It bears a simple meaning that "your happiness, is the very happiness we desire".

It derives straight from this principle that I would like to make all the employees who are working for Event21 more and more happy.
This is the value that fills this company with life.
Therefore I'm constantly thinking about how to make Event21 an even better company.

I belive that a company is a good one, if the employees have pride in their work and they feel it to be meaningful. Furthermore, employees have their own dreams concerning the company's future prospects, and along with that they are living a full life, spending time with their families, lovers, hobbies etc.
I believe that's what it takes to be a good company, that's what abundant life really means.

The mission of Event21 is neither pursuing its own profit, nor pursuing others benefit.
What Event21 is indeed looking for the most are colleagues, who could share our view that all things are interconnected, who could feel joy and pride through creating happiness and could do their best for this common goal.
