Our HR strategy
In FY 2016, we created a strategy road map for putting in place HR programs and processes that are necessary to help us achieve medium-term objectives set at the group level. This road map is updated every year based on the progress we make.
In Japan, our focus is on development and deployment of talents to take the mature business model to the next level. We will work to synthesize various initiatives that we have spearheaded over the years, such as extending retirement age to 65 and enhancing support for employees on childcare leave, into a coherent framework. We will also intensify efforts to address the growing urgency of grooming leaders who are capable of sustainable value creation, promoting diversity, and innovating workstyles for better results.
Outside Japan, our priority is to translate the huge business potential in the different regions/countries into actual results. We will gain greater visibility of our talents around the world, while identifying and developing high potential individuals for mission-critical roles in future.
