Benesse Group Transformation Business Plan

The Benesse Group announced its Medium-Term Management Plan in November 2020, and this March 2023 marked the end of Phase 1 , or the first two years as presented in the Plan. Given the results of Phase 1 and various changes in the environment surrounding the Company and each of its businesses, we have refined the Medium-Term Management Plan and developed the Transformation Business Plan.
