Japan’s emerging tech startup scene has produced another success: FLOW, a new product by Tokyo-based tech recruitment firm Wahl and Case, has been selected as one of the top 5 HR disruptors at the upcoming HR Tech World Congress, the world’s biggest HR tech event.

Japan’s emerging startup scene is making waves as far as London, which will soon become the world’s HR tech capital during the upcoming HR Tech World Congress, the world’s biggest HR tech event, on March 21-22.

The event, attended by the likes of Sir Richard Branson and Sir Ken Robinson, the most watched speaker of all time on TED and this year’s keynote speaker, also features a startup contest dedicated to the disruptors who most innovatively challenge the status quo in HR.

The contest’s judges include venture capitalists and HR thought leaders, who have just announced their shortlist for the top 5 HR tech startups today.

This year, the top 5 includes a Japanese HR tech startup, FLOW, which was developed by a team at Wahl and Case.

Daniel Bodonyi, Director of FLOW commented: “With FLOW we have created a unique culture matching and employee retention tool, and we’re sublimely excited to see our innovative approach being recognized by today’s best minds in HR.”

Wahl and Case’s CEO, Casey Wahl added: “We know from experience that the recruitment industry is broken, globally. With our unique insights into the problems, we are launching new digital solutions to solve the pain and frustration that exists in recruitment today. FLOW was created to solve a big problem, and this selection is validation that the team has created an important tool for companies to retain and engage their best talent.”

FLOW was developed in cooperation with a team of workplace psychologists after extensive proprietary research into motivation. The tool combines psychological assessments with machine learning algorithms to help companies reduce expensive employee turnover. It is an affordable and versatile tool that can be used in both the hiring and employee engagement process, and is extremely easy to deploy.
