For a changing world
As the future of work changes, how we learn also changes.
We aim at increasing pioneers who continue to learn, reinvent themselves to be adaptable in new contexts in the changing world regardless of age.
Through sending aspiring pioneers of mid to late career stage adults, we will support most dynamic organizations in Japan to accelerate innovations by meaningful intergenerational collaborations.
Causes We Care About
In 2030, 6.4 million labor force shortage is estimated in Japan. *1 A quarter of the decline will be reduced if more seniors participate in the labor market. *2 We will rely more on senior's wide knowledge.
*1,2. Persol research institution
Approx. 80% of Japanese seniors want to continue working actively.*3 They want to take the opportunity to live a self-determined life and finally pursue their passion-driven jobs. These pioneer generations may emerge.
*3. "Aging society report in 2017", Cabinet Office, Government of Japan
However, 48% of big corporations relegate older managerial workers to lower positions based on age limit, typically at the age of 50 regardless of their competencies.*4 We need to combat such age discrimination before the labor force shortage becomes too serious and nurture motivated pioneer senior talents who remain in the labor market.
