Human Resource Strategy

TAIYO YUDEN GROUP is striving to realize the richness of employees by taking great care of their characters or personalities with understanding of human resource diversity based on Company foundation philosophy.

Accordingly, we will continue to produce globalize talents who can experience different cultures and realize management strategies, as well as innovative talents who are able to create new values to contribute to society by enhancing their expertise and creativity. Also, to fulfill Human Resources mission of "Facilitate employee's future and excellent organization," in pursuit of each employee's personal growth as well as enhancement of corporate value creation, we will create an environment where all group talents and organizations can play an active role in order to accelerate the development of human resources.

Training Initiatives

Executive/Next-Generation Manager Training

Our officers (including Outside Directors, Outside Audit & Supervisory Board Members, and Operating Officers) are provided with training opportunities to fulfill their roles and responsibilities from broader perspectives and with deeper insight. We have held executive training for all executives and conducted executive coaching for future manager candidates. In the years to come, officers of the Company will strive to devote themselves to their studies in good faith through training opportunities, while keeping in mind the Corporate Governance Code.

Global Human Resources Development

As a manufacturing company, TAIYO YUDEN is working to create personnel recruitment/management systems that will enable it to prevail against global competition. For overseas base human resources in particular, we are cooperat-ing with human resources development organizations to encourage the dispatch-ing and sending of employees to our headquarters in Japan, the implemen-tation of a technical internship program and training that is geared toward over-seas human resources, while developing specialized on-the-job training (OJT), also at our headquarters in Japan. We will continue to develop global human resources and accelerate the turning out in great numbers of global human resources who are able to play active roles in Japan and overseas.

Development of Manufacturing Talents

Through data analysis and statistical analysis training, we are making prog-ress with further improvements in business operation and efficiency. In addition to training to learn the statistical analysis software that has been ongoing since last year, in the current fiscal year we have conducted practical statistical training for young employees by which they are able to learn, from an "awareness" of on-site improvements to quality management, production management, project management and the building in of quality at the design stage. We will continue education for the advancement of quality- and safety-based manufacturing.

Education for Career Design and Development

In order for TAIYO YUDEN employees to work with "job satisfaction" and "job motivation", all employees set goals (commitments) on a semi-annual basis and conduct regular interviews with their supervisors to create a sense of expectation and accomplishment, so that employees can consciously take actions towards capability development.

From a medium- to long-term perspective, employees will be provided with career plan training by rank and age as an opportunity to think about the career they want to pursue and the career plan to achieve it, and we will support each employee in the process of self-actualization.
