The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly changed our lifestyle and values. As symbolized by the term “◯X,” X (= transformation = change) is required in everything, and it seems that all alphabetical letters from A to Z can be entered in the ◯ part.
Among them, digital transformation is progressing at an amazing pace. However, we believe that digital transformation does not encompass all the required transformations. We believe that we are now in an era when it is necessary to feel true communication that requires both efficient and objective understanding based on data analysis and emotional conviction through sensitivity.
Our parent bodies, the Hankyu Hanshin Holdings Group and the H2O Retailing Group, have been engaged in various businesses mainly in the Umeda, Hanshin, and Hokusetsu areas for 100 years. Through their businesses, they have not only accumulated data, but have also cultivated a climate and culture as important resources over time. Using all these resources, we aim to be a company that can provide a variety of solutions that are not just digital methods.
“Why” and “for what” purpose should this information be exchanged, and how can the information be received more comfortably? Our aim is to become a company that can think, together with our clients, about how to propose solutions that respond to these questions to both senders and receivers of information.Representative Director, President & Chief Executive Officer Hitoshi Ueda
I hope that you are doing well.
Over the past three years, the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly restricted our real-world activities and has changed our lives, jobs, and ways of working. At the same time, digitization has progressed in all fields, and a super information society has arrived. Although hhms: was also hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic immediately following its establishment in December 2019, our members patiently worked hard even in a situation where face-to-face interactions were difficult. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all the clients, alliance partners, and members who have been with us during these years. Thank you very much.
The year 2023 has begun. I want to make this year a year of an enormous breakthrough based on the skills, perseverance, and trust that we have acquired over the past three years. This thought excites me. This year, we will further evolve hhms: into a company that can seamlessly maximize value in all aspects from marketing to creativity and media relations.
The most important thing is who you work with. I would like all members to demonstrate their own creativity, have a passionate heart, and move forward happily and lightly. We aim to make hhms: a company where communication is most valued and where employees can easily consult with others and work comfortably.
Will you join us on a journey to create a bright future? We look forward to your cooperation.Representative Director, Executive Vice President Akihiro Miyatake
