How Reeracoen Came About

Mr. Naito always had a vision to create a recruitment firm that conveys a better impression of recruiters. He is also spurred by his belief that he can affect lives by helping individuals find better jobs, thus enabling them to provide their families with better lives. Hence, he decided to join the start-up of Reeracoen Malaysia alongside a few colleagues with the mission to "Create a wonderful future with those pursuing happiness.".

Using the best practices from Reeracoen Malaysia, he effectively accelerated and expanded Reeracoen's recruitment services across the region. Under his good stewardship, he unified all branches under “One Reeracoen” ensuring one united value system, thinking and mission.

His Core Values

Mr. Naito believes in the saying, “the greatest risk is standing still” because he believes that by staying put, one runs the risk of falling behind others. He also believes that "every experience is a wonderful gift" because there would always be something to learn that would help us to grow in life.

As a strong advocate for saving the environment, Mr. Naito also champions behind causes that protect the environment. Besides volunteering his free time to pick litter off the streets, Mr. Naito would try to come up with ways of going green and encouraging others to do the same. Hence, he will be kickstarting “For the Earth” project in Reeracoen to give out specially curated metal straws to clients, thus reducing the use of plastic straws. This aids in strengthening our client relationships and doing our part for environmental conservation. He would like to be executed by all the branches in Reeracoen.

Giving Back to the Community

When Mr. Naito is not working, he makes time for things that matter to him. Being compassionate since young and having a soft spot for the underprivileged children, he established his non-governmental organisation (NGO) called “Plus One” in 2003. Their aim is to raise funds to support the children living in villages in the Philippines. Every year, they organise various charity events in Japan and donate the proceeds to Christian Mission Service Philippines (CMSP). CMSP is a child-caring organisation that provides holistic development services for the Filipino child. 

Since then, the organisation has expanded and they have extended their help to Kursa Lilliei, an orphanage in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Apart from providing financial help to the children in the Philippines and Cambodia, they would organise a yearly trip to both places so they can provide emotional support to the children there.
