Culture

Personal Growth Equals Company Growth

Since our founding, CyberAgent has placed the highest value on hiring, training, motivating, and assigning our people to their best roles. We have continued to grow, building our business in the burgeoning Internet market by understanding the gifts of the people in our organizations and maximizing their capabilities. Doing business on the Internet does not require major capital investment. Here, talented people are the most important management resource. Training our people and finding their best roles ties directly to our ability to compete as a company. We believe that motivating work and plenty of decision-making experience ties to personal growth, which in turn ties to company growth and performance gains.

Structures that Support Our Corporate Culture

CyberAgent has launched numerous new businesses in conjunction with changes in the market environment, engaging in self-driven growth without relying on mergers and acquisitions. We have made plenty of mistakes in the process. And yet, if one hesitates for fear of mistakes, they will be left behind in a market such as the Internet, where change happens so quickly. As we work to grow our businesses, we also establish clear rules for when to withdraw. In so doing, we will create an environment that encourages our people to strive for higher challenges. Our human resources policy includes a phrase saying, “challenge and peace of mind are a set.” We want to create an environment in which people can feel at ease, even while taking on big challenges. Through the many unique human resources systems at CyberAgent, we offer a balance between work and life for all talented employees, regardless of gender, aiming to be a company at which people commit to long and rewarding careers. 

An Environment to Embrace Challenges

    We limit the maximum numbers of directors as eight, and change two directors every two years as a general rule. We aim for business expansion by formulating a structure of directors to match our business strategy and creating a strong corporate organization with holding many managerial talents.
