The WDB Group has been mainly in business of Human Resource Services centering around Staffing and Recruitment services.

Also, we are now developing a new business model to deliver a more convenient and easier to use HR services through internet. Regarding the CRO business, which is growing as the second pillar, next to the Human Resource Service, we are actively developing our business both in and outside Japan.

In this business transformation attempt, we have renewed our corporate logo and corporate message, which express our fundamental corporate spirit - WDBʼs innovation and challenge mind - in terms of design and language.

Under the corporate philosophy “Discover hidden value and create new value”, we at the WDB Group will keep raising our corporate value by continuing our challenges now and ever.

New Corporate Logo

The new logo symbolically represents WDBʼs corporate philosophy and our nurtured DNA. Two corners on the left-hand side represent “hidden value” and “new value” respectively, while a corner on the right-hand side represents “contribution to the social development.”

These three points message out our corporate philosophy “Discover hidden value and add new value by shedding light there” and our raison dʼetre in the society.
Also, by the image that progresses toward the right-hand side, the logo conveys our innovative mind looking forward and our challenge mind not caught by the industryʼs conventions.
The coloring of new blue is based on the existing corporate color and to express our sincere corporate culture, “we follow not the common sense of industry, but the good sense of society.”
