. “I see many companies in Southeast Asia have been facing issues with low engagement and high turnover rate of employees due to many reasons like lack of credit. So, here we are to fill the gap,” said the founder Junichiro in a statement. With VENTENY, businesses can provide their staff members with perks such as discounts at restaurants, gyms, and hotels, including short-term loans for employees through partner banks and other financial institutions with the intent to create a good Employer-Employee relationship and to boost up employees’ loyalty, focus, and commitment to the member companies.
A vision for a wider productive alliance
It’s really hard for the employees to create perks and benefits for themselves and the companies are busy in their business and are not able to help them. As Junichiro’s father taught him that there is an altruistic approach in creating better companies, this is when Junichiro realized his brilliant solution in making a better environment for the employees and profitable for the companies as well by starting up VENTENY. This vision creates better alliances with an improved productivity for the companies. “This is one problem that we want to solve for all the companies in the Philippines,” he explains.
“You go, stay focused and don’t be blurred with distractions. You have to believe and find people that you can share risks with,” he advises on creating a successful company.
