In addition to the present, we also care about the profound importance to the era.
In 1996, 104 was founded like a beautiful pearl from a grain of sand that a clam cannot bear.
104 founder Rocky Yang used to work in Germany and the UK and was deeply aware of respect for people in European countries. After returning to Taiwan, he successfully started a business with friends. However, he, as a bobo, couldn’t stand the neglect of quality and resigned accordingly.
At that time, the internet was not widespread, and people looked for jobs through ads in newspapers and notices posted by stores. Seeing such ineffective job seeking channels, Rocky Yang mustered his courage to challenge himself by establishing 104 in an old apartment with an area of 30 ping or more. It took him two years to successfully found 104 and set up a website using a computer and a user-friendly approach to job seekers and employers.
104 cares about a person’s value and an organic environment where a worker can be transformed into a talent.
A person will spend 30 years working and change seven jobs on average in his/her life. When a person finds a job based on salary rather than ideal values or social influence, workplaces will not advance; when an employer focuses on labor costs, the company is unable to accumulate human capital and the country will not progress.
As a model in the market, 104 pursues quality in work and life. As our missions indicate, “More than a job, we help you define a career; more than an employee, we help you manage talent”, only by seeing a person’s value will workers and employers enjoy prosperity and organic workplaces.
The most sincere business commitment is to grow with clients and lead society forward.
To achieve industrial innovation, we have transformed ourselves into 104 2.0 based on four core concepts (cloud, mobile, open, and social). 104 2.0 aims to optimize the scope of service and in-depth demands based on existing diversified careers and human resources.
In view of the aging population and low birth rate, 104 extends the scope of service from workers to the elderly and children and reaffirms three core values of business development: commitment to the elderly, commitment to career matchmaking, and commitment to children. We hope to prevent 8% workers from withdrawing from workplaces by taking advantage of the value of the healthy elderly and respecting the dignity of the disabled elderly. Also, we look forward to finding the ability of every child in order to relieve the talent shortage.
Care for mothers in Taiwan and encourage innovative thinking and value transformation
The birth of 104 originates from unemployment. 104 always bears a social responsibility to provide a stable workplace and to care for the land. We always look forward to transforming workers into givers, who take courage to help society and solve problems. And doing so often creates unique values and personal significance.
Whether a life is different depends on the courage to achieve one thing without limit.
