Ultra Light Company Recommendations

There is a style that all walkers know: long trail, ultra-light.

A long trail is a kind of walking trip that originated in the U.S. It is a long trail that is not strenuous like mountaineering, and is followed at one's leisure.

You can eat delicious food along the way, admire the scenery, or walk in silence.

Ultra-light" refers to the reduction in the weight of equipment and gear, and recent technological developments have made it possible to work extremely light.

Establishing and operating a company is a long road.

I thought it would be a good idea to keep our equipment as light as possible, choose our own paths, stop and go, and have fun.

That is the recommendation of Ultra Light Company.

By reviewing all the common sense that is generally required in running a company, we reduce the weight to the extreme, choose the solutions to the world's problems that we want to contribute to, and spend our days talking about, reviewing, and fulfilling the problems we want to solve.

We are working with awareness of limited resources and limited time.

A great atmosphere of no overtime work.

Mogic's regular hours are 7:00 p.m. By the time 7:05 p.m. passes, half the place is empty.

Since more than half of them commute to work by bicycle or on foot, one would expect them to linger in the office and chat, but on the contrary, they go home so quickly that it is almost graceful.

And before 7:30 p.m., no one will be there.

Sometimes there are people doing something until before 8pm, but it is hard because one person has to check all the doors from the 4th floor to the basement 1F by himself.

Therefore, it is better to leave together when everyone else seems to be leaving, so the atmosphere becomes one of going home early.

Overtime has been prohibited since the company was first established, and this has not changed even now that the number of employees has increased and there is much more work to be done.

I think that is our style.

After graduation, who will pay for the cost of education?

In Japan, everyone has access to education until they finish school.

But who, one wonders, is bearing the cost of educating students to live successfully in society after they graduate from school?

Is it a company or an individual?

Looking at recent global survey reports, I sense something of a great divide: companies say there is a shortage of the human resources they want, while students are unable to find jobs in the companies and occupations they want.

I guess the bottom line is whether companies or individuals should bear the cost of education to become the human resources that companies are looking for.

Our hypothesis has always been that if the current cost of education were cut in half or even by 1/3, companies and individuals would be more willing to bear the burden.

We believe that one of the roots of the problem of accepting an ever-increasing number of refugees into Europe is tied to how well they are educated in language and job skills.

We need to examine all aspects of the investment activity of education, which will become even more important in the future.
