The PwC Japan Group is participating in a project to attract new industries and human resources to the regions afflicted by the disaster in Fukushima Prefecture and promote start-ups, and is working on initiatives to secure human resources in the area.
The 12 municipalities (Tamura-shi, Minamisoma-shi, Kawamata-machi, Hirono-machi, Naraha-machi, Tomioka-machi, Kawauchi-mura, Okuma-machi, Futaba-machi, Namie-machi, Katsurao-mura and Iitate-mura), which became subject to evacuation orders in conjunction with TEPCO’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear disaster, have seen the greatest population outflow in the prefecture, and business owners are facing the task of securing human resources.
In order to solve this issue, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry started a project from June 2016 to support hiring through the matching of human resources. PricewaterhouseCoopers Aarata LLC has taken part in the project as one of the companies of the Fukushima hiring support team which was formed at the beginning of the project in June 2016 and has been supporting reconstruction efforts by providing services such as project risk advisory services, supporting the improvement of business processes and providing advice on enhancing the precision of data.
We have conducted exchanges and matching events between companies in the afflicted areas and potential recruits, and provided information through effective want ads to meet the hiring target of 200 for the current fiscal year (total 12 municipalities).
Under PwC’s Purpose of “Build trust in society and solve important problems,” the PwC Japan Group has been contributing to the reconstruction efforts of the afflicted areas and to the revitalization of the regional economy.
