Tokyo 2020 recruits HR firm

The organising committee for the Tokyo 2020 summer Olympic and Paralympic Games has agreed a sponsorship deal with multinational human resources company Pasona.

The Tokyo-headquartered company will serve as an official supporter of the Games, which represents the third domestic tier of the Tokyo 2020 sponsorship programme.

Pasona has been attributed the human resources services category, which covers job placement services; personnel support services relating to hiring, assessment and placement; worker dispatching services; managing and delivering services for job fairs; and training services for corporate entities excluding online and offline language training services such as testing services.

The agreement brings the total number of Tokyo 2020 domestic partners to 47, including 15 gold partners, 29 official partners and three official supporters. The Tokyo 2020 sponsorship programme also includes five worldwide Olympic partners in the shape of Atos, Bridgestone, Omega, Panasonic and Toyota.

Tokyo 2020 president Yoshiro Mori said: “Recruiting talented people is going to be one of the key challenges for us at Tokyo 2020, so it is really encouraging that Pasona will be cooperating with us in the field of human resources.”

As a domestic sponsor, Pasona will be granted the use of Tokyo 2020’s Olympic and Paralympic designations and imagery, including emblems, mascots and slogans.
