Why Work at Cocone（Takahito Inoue, Accounting and Finance)
※This article is machine translated.
What does sensibility mean to you?
Generally, sensitivity comes to mind as an active expression inspired by external stimuli such as “perceiving, judging and expressing what you feel” (in Cocone, the representative is a designer).For example, interpreting information given from outside such as laws and regulations and dropping logic into practice.Designers may express sensitivity from the inside, but the back office is rather passive when it comes to sensitivity, and I feel that they use sensitivity to information given from outside.
Why did you join Cocone?
At the turning point of my 10th year in the workforce, I was looking for a job where I could fully utilize my experience and knowledge of accounting and finance that I had learned through a series of practical work experience. It was at this time that I was invited by an old acquaintance of mine, an employee of Cocone, to join the company, as there was a position that would allow me to be involved in building the organization while working on the “operational efficiency” initiatives that I desired. I want to create an attractive environment that is exciting for the members I work with from a corporate perspective.
We are working to improve operations by compiling the financial statements of the entire Cocone Group and improving workflow.
About the team you belong to
This is where all of Cocone’s activities are finally consolidated into numerical values. It is responsible for compiling those figures and communicating them to management. It is also the last guardian of money, protecting the funds necessary for corporate activities.
What we value in our work
·depend on others: There is a limit to what I can do alone, so I am conscious of achieving results as a team without trying to solve the problem by myself.I have described this as a wish for other powers, but of course I want to make the most of my abilities.
Speed: At the company where I used to work, I recited the phrase “Do it now, do it without fail, and do it until you can do it ” every day for five years. This imprinted on me that my initial response to a job was the most important thing. I still value it today.
・structuralization：We are always looking for ways to create processes that emphasize efficiency, such as automating parts of the process that can be done without me.
Attraction of Cocone
I feel that there are few aggressive, forward-looking people, and many of them have relatively calm personalities. I felt that the appeal of working with such people was that I could work with professionals who quietly demonstrate their individual expertise.
