Established Temporary Center Inc.

Start of the temporary staffing business
Launched a temporary staffing business to meet the needs of homemakers who had raised their children and wanted to re-enter the workforce to utilize the abilities and skills they had once developed as office workers.
The hourly wage for Pasona temporary staff at that time was calculated by dividing the annual income of a full-time employee by the number of hours the employee worked in a year. The aim was to obtain equal pay for work of equal value. Whether they worked four hours a day or three days a week, the hourly wage for temporary staff would be the same as that of a full-time employee.
