A big problem in Japan now is that full-time foreign workers get paid less than Japanese part-timers.
Originally, the plan was to solve the problem of a lack of workers in Japan with foreign workers.
But most companies in Japan have taken advantage of this situation by keeping the extra money that they don’t pay to foreign workers as profit.
We’re not going to keep this money as profit. We’re going to use this money to help foreign workers have a more comfortable life in Japan.
For example, we have built a comfortable dormitory for our foreign workers to live in.
Our plan is to match the salaries of foreign workers, to Japanese workers in the future.
This will happen step-by-step, over time, until the salaries are the same between foreign and Japanese workers.
We want TAKENOBE to have the reputation of a good company that treats its workers fairly and make TAKENOBE known as a company that people want to join.
This is a big challenge, but it is our mission!

Protection and Assistance of Foreign Interns
We at TAKENOBE believe it is important to have an independent organization that supervises the working and legal relationship between our company and our for an intern workers.
TAKENOBE has chosen the Assist Cooperative Working Association. This is an organization that supervisors and supports companies with the effective and fair employment of foreign workers from countries such as Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Thailand.
