In keeping with the philosophy of the Group's founder, TAIYO YUDEN Group understands the importance of workforce diversity and endeavors to encourage individual employees to express their unique character and personality, hoping to help them lead an enriched life.
Bearing the above in mind, we build and implement ongoing human resources development strategies, focusing on two areas: globalization skills for implementing management strategies based on experience of different cultures; and innovation capabilities for creating new value to contribute to society by exercising strengthened professional expertise and creativity. Also, seeking to perform our HR mission to "shape the future of individuals and organizations," we are striving to create an environment that encourages both individuals and organizations to fulfill their potential and accelerate HR development efforts. Through these activities, we aim to facilitate the personal growth of each employee and increase our overall corporate value.
TAIYO YUDEN offers a broad range of systematized training and education programs to enhance individual employees' skills and abilities and help them fulfill their potential.
At TAIYO YUDEN, as a way to increase motivation for work, all employees are asked to set a semiannual goal (commitment) and share it with their supervisor in periodic interview sessions. The intention is to instill in employees a sense of anticipation and accomplishment, and encourage them to engage in skill-building activities on their own.
In order to support each employee with their self-fulfillment efforts from a medium- to long-term viewpoint, we run career planning programs to provide an opportunity for employees to consider their career goals and explore approaches toward them. In addition, an in-house career counseling service has been established for employees to use as necessary.
For the purpose of boosting the energy and enthusiasm of employees, we perform work engagement surveys, starting from FY2020, to grasp the current level and set a target (calculated in reference to the New Brief Job Stress Questionnaire [80 questions]; response rate: 93.3%). Based on the survey results, we will draw up and carry out work engagement improvement plans, with a view to promoting health-oriented management and work style reform, and seeking to increase individual employees' motivation for work and invigorate organizational and teamwork activities.
