Developing and Strengthening Human Resources

Developing and Strengthening Human Resources

In seeking to enhance corporate value, we believe it is important for every employee to embrace diversity of values and flexibility in thinking and to enhance his/her skills. For the Oji Group to grow as a global enterprise “beyond boundaries,” we are implementing human resource strategies aimed at enhancing corporate value based on the Oji Group Human Resource Philosophy, in accordance with our fundamental principle, “a company’s strength originates from human resources.”

As a human resources strategy for enhancing corporate value, the Oji Group is implementing measures in three areas based on the Oji Group Human Resource Philosophy.
In the context of human resources development, we are focusing on developing human resources who can accomplish management strategies, particularly global human resources.
As part of working style reforms and health and productivity management, we are striving to reduce total working hours and improve operational efficiency, while also concentrating on health and productivity management in consideration of our employees’ health.
In terms of inclusion and diversity, we continue to take steps in line with the diversity promotion policies in seeking to build workplaces where all employees, regardless of their background, can fully demonstrate their potential with peace of mind.

The Oji Group is developing human resources in line with the Oji Group Human Resource Philosophy, and is striving to develop global human resources who can accomplish management strategies. We are constructing facilities for employee exchange and training in Fujinomiya City, Shizuoka Prefecture. Going forward, we will review our current training system on the premise of selective human resource development training centered on global training, and provide cross-COMPANY training sessions across the Group.
