Leaving No One Behind
At CrowdWorks, we are striving to become a platform to spread joy through work and reward. Based on this mission "Talent Infrastructure", we are seeking to establish a new working infrastructure that enables individuals to shine. In addition to CrowdWorks—which lets people offer and take on work online—up until now we have provided various services that have created opportunities for people to work regardless of their age, available times, or location.
Our aim is to help individuals contribute to society through their work while leading the type of life they want to lead. This is an extension of our corporate mission, which is to become a platform to spread joy through work and reward. Further, we firmly believe that these ideals are in close agreement with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their central promise of “leaving no one behind.”
As a corporate entity closely engaged with work, through our business activities and the implementation of new in-house workstyles, we will strive to create a sustainable, inclusive society together with our crowd workers and various stakeholders, including our clients, the government, administrative bodies, the media, and our shareholders.
A Framework for Identifying CW Key Indicators for ESG Management and SDGs Realization
Toward Identifying Materiality
We are currently in the process of identifying key management indicators for the sustainable growth of our company, all stakeholders, and society in order to realize our mission "Talent Infrastructure".
In particular, we aim to "expand labor opportunities through the promotion of technology and DX (and provide an environment where everyone can be rewarded)" and are discussing key issues toward expanding labor opportunities in light of the rapidly changing labor market environment. In addition, by identifying the 17 goals of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in relation to our key issues, we will aim to resolve the SDG goals.

The SDGs CrowdWorks focuses on
Quality education for all
More than half of the people in Japan are not reskilling, and it is said that this is partly due to a lack of clarity about the skills they need to acquire*. For such people, we provide training in areas that contribute to improving the market value of individuals through our "Minna no College" service, thereby increasing the number of people who try reskilling and at the same time providing study opportunities.

Let's make gender equality a reality
It is said that as many as 2.35 million women in Japan's non-working population are looking to work*. In addition, the percentage of women in managerial positions at companies is lower than in Europe, the United States, and other Asian countries. We will create an environment where women who want to work can make use of their skills and motivation in any situation to build their careers and raise awareness of the gender gap, which is essential to achieving this.

Both meaningful jobs and economic growth
Through the creation of a new working infrastructure for individuals, CrowdWorks will expand the number of ways to work and encourage change towards a society where everyone can choose their own way of working. In addition, by proactively implementing new ways of working within the company, we will create a productive and rewarding workplace, disseminate the knowledge and skills we gained in that area, and return them to society.
Eliminate inequality among people and countries
In terms of income by region in Japan, Tokyo is becoming more prominent every year and the regional disparity continues to widen*. By introducing local residents to jobs at Tokyo-based companies, we are able to deliver compensation above the average regional compensation.
