Dare-Pay (Investment approval system)
The investment approval system of afterFIT is called "Dare-Pay", came from "Anyone('Daredemo' in Japanese) can pay". We are flat organization and we don't have bosses and subordinates. "So who settles expenses? - Everyone!" That's how it was born.
The person who wants to use expenses becomes the requester, and the other one who permits him to use it becomes the approver. In afterFIT, every employee has his own settlement range (every employee has the same range as of September 2019).
afterFIT think that all expense is investment.
'The requester' who uses expenses thinks its cost effectiveness and then requests someone to approve. 'The approver' is responsible for the decision of its validity. Expense is investment and if you can create better future by using the expense, we recommend to use it without restraint. However, if it is stupid spending, we should use it sparingly.
It applies for buying books, transportation expenses for business trips of course, and even 'right or wrong' of a business trip. So, when the approver get a request from the requester, he asks him why, and what kind of effects he expects from the expense. The approver asks its background and if it is proper usage, he approves. Otherwise denies.
If you get denial from A, you can send a request to A again with its additional explanation. Or also you can request B who understands your request better than A.
This system was created with the expectation that employees would be able to make managerial investment decisions by making their own payments.
From now on, the employee who has better decisional skill will have bigger range of settlement, and the others will have smaller one.
Not only the boss, but also anyone can pay.This is the 'Dare-Pay'.
