HR Tech, getting popular since last year
"Work Style Reform" is a critical issue with the highest priority for companies in Japan, where shortening working hours or improving productivity is now a nation-wide challenge. With this background, HR Tech is attracting attention for a purpose to promote Work Style Reform with utilization of new technologies (Tech) such as cloud or Artificial Intelligence (AI) and streamlining of human resource management.
Time to Workforce Tech from HR Tech
Productive-age population (*) of Japan has continuously decreased, after peaking at 86.99 million in 1997 and is predicted to decrease to 67 million people in 2030, with 58.1% of the productive population ratio (in 2030). In the meantime, it becomes an urgent need to create better working environment for the mental and physical health, such as "postponement of retirement" in response to increasing life expectancy. The aim of WAP is to realize a support system using Workforce Tech, which enables employees to work with high productivity in a healthy condition, combining personal networking information such as health data with the big data relating to operations that have been accumulated in WAP since the start of the business. We create a future, where each employee utilizes Workforce Tech not only in HR but also in daily work to continue working in a mentally and physically healthy condition with high productivity.
* Productive-age population: A demographic group from 15-64 years old, a core working force group in the population by age
Leverage of Workforce Tech for radical "Work Style Reform"
WAP aims to realize the world where individual workforces are maximized with the power of Workforce Tech. Reducing time-wasting tasks or administrative tasks, such as data entry tasks including checking a batch of slips or applications, allows us to concentrate on creative strategic business. WAP will utilize Workforce Tech of "AI WORKS" to promote Work Style Reform for the future world filled with new innovation, fostered by an individual business person who maximizes his/her own value.
