Initiatives in Overseas Group Companies


Respect for Diversity

The HR Department maintains a close relationship with each and every employee, striving to understand their needs and concerns and support human resources development. At the same time, it offers advice and management for enhancing morale and harmony in the workplace. The workplace has roughly 100 employees, but they represent a diverse range of ages and nationalities speaking 10 different languages. We strive to create the best possible working environment in which employees and management can understand and respect their respective countries' customs, cultures and thinking and pull together to achieve the company's goals.

Employee Activities Committee

We have established the Employee Activities Committee (EAC) as an organization for promoting greater cooperation between employees and recognizing the contributions of employees to the company. The EAC is composed of volunteer members from various departments, and it organizes monthly activities including barbecues, picnics, holiday parties, in-company snack times and so on. Such events provide useful opportunities for executive officers and employees to get some temporary relief from their daily duties and deepen their exchanges. They also impart vitality to each and every employee and prove useful for enhancing the corporate culture.


Small Group Activities

Small group activities including 5S and proposal activities are actively conducted in an effort to develop the skills of locally recruited employees. Also, human resources who are capable of administering the local corporation are developed in this manner. In addition, since 2017, there have been various in-house activities to promote communication, for example, an in-house sports festival, birthday parties, club activities, a morning greetings campaign, company trips, Japanese and English classes and so on.


Support for Taking the Safety Assessor Qualification Exam

Based on application of the head office regulations, we establish regulations and systems specific to each country while adhering to the local culture and environment. Also, we offer various training programs in an effort to improve the skills of locally recruited employees. For example, IDEC (SHANGHAI) CORPORATION assists employees in taking the examination for the Japanese Safety Assessor qualification, which recognizes knowledge and ability in utilizing safety devices. It actively supports in-house seminars, OJT, information exchanges with Japanese production sites and other activities.
