We hear that the company is planning to employ as many as 300 personnel for its “MCM Center Oita” to be built in Oita city. We are excited to see the opening in October, knowing that transcosmos is aiming to create a women-friendly environment through implementing flexible working arrangements for women that seek to achieve healthy work-life balance, while creating pleasant and comfortable break room with paying full attention to the details. We are also excited to see wider employment opportunities for people living in the remote areas once the company is ready to provide work-at-home option going forward.

We highly expect transcosmos to build momentum in generating employment opportunities and unlocking full potential of women at work.”

Our city is focusing on attracting information-communication related industries to our city and we expect transcosmos to become the trigger to make it happen.
