自由を求め、仕組みを作る男

A Man Combining Freedom and Structure

「僕の場合、単純なんです。人生は納期が決まっていて、納期までに何をやるか。ただそれだけ」

ルールに縛られず、自由に。小野さんはずっとそう思って生きてきた。帰国子女で、日本の義務教育を受けてこなかったことも関係するだろうか。

最初は飲食店の現場から入り、管理部門を経たあと、開発やコンサルをする会社に転職。「わりと大きめの会社で、一時は人前に立つような仕事もやってたんですけど、経験値足りないなと、まだそのレベルじゃないな」となり、もう一度現場へ。小さな会社で店舗の立ち上げをし、ある程度の規模に達したら卒業して、という繰り返し。「ある目的が達成されると、職場を変えていく感じでしたね」

 

“I am simple minded. In my life, there are deadlines and I just do what I have to in order to meet them.”Living life, not bound by rules, but as a free spirit. This is how Mr. Ono enjoys life. Living abroad without a Japanese education might have formed his personality this way.

Mr. Ono started his career in a restaurant, and then moved to a management role in the food and beverage industry. After that he changed jobs and enrolled in a company that was working with restaurant development and consulting for other companies.

“It was quite a big company and I was occasionally advising people, but I had a lack of experience. I felt I was not on the proper level for guiding other people.”

So, he went back to work at a restaurant again. He supported the opening of a small restaurant from the beginning. When the restaurant became successful, he moved to another company. He repeatedly changed jobs like that. “When I reached a goal, I changed my job.”

そんな時、ある知人の紹介で出会ったのが「ディ・リンクス」代表の大澤だった。

「外食産業にいると、その業界の常識に染まりがちなんですけど、大澤さんは発想が違っていて。ロジックはしっかりしてますし、情報量も多くて、クリエイティブな人だなという印象でした。それで興味を持って、将来何したいの?と聞かれ、僕も嘘つけないんで、自由になりたいですって答えて。最初はえっ?ってなったんですけど、それでも一緒にやろうっていっていただけて」

よもや思いがけない流れから「デリシャス・リンクス」に入社することになった小野さん。「そういうのばっかりなんで人生。ツテとコネと紹介で生きてます」と、自嘲のような笑みを浮かべる。

 

Around that time, he met Mr. Osawa, CEO of D-Links Inc., through an acquaintance. “In the food and beverage industry, we tend to have routine ideas. But Mr. Osawa was different. He had unique ideas based on a certain kind of logic and a lot of information. He seemed creative and I was very much attracted to that. He asked me, ‘What do you want to do in the future?’ and I answered, ‘I want to be free.’ At first this was confusing to him, but later we reached an agreement to work together.”

That is how Mr. Ono unexpectedly joined Delicious-Links Inc. “This is just my life. I live supported by other people’s help, consideration and kindness,” he smiled with self-deprecation. “I think I can work anywhere, but now that I am getting older, with whom I am going to work is more important than what I am going to do. I do not want to work only for money. Since I have no special desires, I just want to work happily.”

「どこにいっても仕事はできると思うんです。ただ年齢を重ねていくと、何をやるかというよりも、誰とやるかというのが大事になってくる。僕自身は無欲な人間なので、こうしたいというよりは、当たり前に楽しく働きたい。稼ぐだけの仕事はしたくはないんです」

現在、小野さんの所属は経営管理部門。財務や労務をメインでやりながら、人材の紹介も積極的に行っている。「人が考えたものを仕組み化するのが仕事です。もちろんこういう時代なので、法律や契約、労働環境も意識しながら。人が成長して、人が辞めない会社作りをしていく。それが一番かなと」

Currently, Mr. Ono works in the business management department. He mainly takes care of finance and labor issues, but he also handles recruitment, too. “My task is to implement someone else’s ideas. I need to make sure the company follows the law, abides by contracts, and upholds a good working environment. I would like to help develop a company where people can improve their skills and stay for a long time. That is my first priority.”

それらの仕事は、小野さんの苦手なルールに縛られるようなことにもならないのだろうか。そう聞くと、ふっと笑ってこう答えた。

「タイプ的には、自由になりながら圧力をかけられるほうが、ポテンシャルを生かせるのかもしれませんね」

 

Those tasks, set by others, seem to bind him to rules that are not his own, but he smiled and said,“I can make a significant contribution and work effectively under pressure when I am free to do what I feel is best. I am this type of person.”
