History

The company was founded in 1960 and incorporated in 1963 in a rooftop office in Tokyo. The company's first products were job-hunting and industry magazines. Since its first magazine, Invitation to Companies, which launched in1962, Recruit has started five industry publications, including Housing Information, directed at the housing industry, Travail, a magazine marketed to women in business, Car Sensor, marketed to the used car sales industry, Jalan, a travel industry magazine, Zexy, a bridal industry publication, and Hot Pepper, a lifestyle guide.

Recruit was early to embrace computer technology, adopting the use of the IBM 1130 for company operations in 1968. In 1971, it started using digitized pre-production technology for its publications.

Beginning in the 1980s, Recruit began exploring ways in which to improve the job search and recruting process through the use of information technology. In 1985, it hired a number of computer engineers and launched its Information Network Service. Two years later in 1987, the company established it's Supercomputer Research Institute.

In 1985, the company expanded into global operations when it founded Recruit U.S.A.

Recruit entered the online media market in the mid 1990s. In 1996, Recruit launched two digital job information magazines, Rikunabi and Rikunabi NEXT.

Recruit launched AirREGI, a digital point of sales system for mobile operating systems in 2013. The launch of AirPAY, a mobile payment solution for small and medium businesses followed two years later in 2015.

Beginning in 2010, the company started to expand its holdings first by acquiring The CSI Companies. In 2011, the company expanded operations to Europe by acquiring Staffmark Group, Advantage Resourcing. In 2012, the company acquried the US based job search engine Indeed.

In 2014, Recruit Holdings Co. went public on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

In 2016, Recruit Holdings expanded heavily into the financial industry when it launched Recruit Finance Partners, which provides loans to small to medium enterprises. The same year it also launched its Fintech Promotion Division.
