About LITE1

We can even launch rockets! Exploring the fun in IT

Given the expected shortage of IT personnel, we have been presenting a children's IT classroom called "LITE1" taught by WingArc1st employees since 2018, to convey the joy of IT to children who carry the future of Japan on their shoulders. With programming classes being introduced for elementary schools in 2020, middle schools in 2021, and high schools in 2022, there is sure to be more interest in IT.

Goal of LITE1

The goal of the class is to get children to have fun while learning programming, and convey to them the "joy" and "excitement" of creating things with IT. WingArc1st would like children to have fun while cultivating their capacity for imaginative creation, developing their ability to give shape to their ideas, and advancing their technical abilities in using IT.
We are committed to making this initiative a catalyst for children to pursue their dreams.

Past events

WingArc1st is committed to the health management of its employees. The company aims to create an environment where each and every employee can maximize their performance and work with a sense of well-being.
To plan our health measures, we have placed several indexes regarding our employees' health and workstyles as our outcome indicators, such as presenteeism, high stress rates, and engagement survey scores (which is also part of our management indicators).
We use our own products (Japanese WebsiteOpen in a new window) when implementing measures and by doing so, we are able to deepen our understanding of these products and explore new ways of using them. We plan to contribute to the health of our workers by actively communicating the details of our initiatives outside of the company and sharing our health management expertise throughout society.
