Policy of Human Resource Development

The KOKUYO Group is promoting systematic individual development centered on three elements - job site, feedback, and training - with the goal of maximizing the individual value of each employee. Training is given mainly by profession at each turning point for businesspersons to provide them with different opportunities to develop their potential through training for selected employees and optional training, offering strong support for employees willing to accept such challenges.

KOKUYO Logitem Co., Ltd., which is responsible for logistics, holds product trainings targeting employees engaged in back-office administration or sales at KOKUYO Marketing Co., Ltd., which is responsible for sales and marketing. In 2017, trainings were held in May and July.

In the training held at the Shinagawa Office in July, methods of assembling products during delivery and the number per box and configurations of parts necessary for assembly, as well as how products are packed for delivery were explained in an easy-to-understand manner even for employees seeing the actual items for the first time. The points to remember when processing purchase orders were also explained. For employees who never see actual products, the training provided an important training ground for improved understanding of the products. Furthermore, the opportunity was a valuable platform for exchanges among group company employees who do not normally interact with each other and a chance to share their problems and requests.

During the group discussion, attendees discussed what they could do to please customers.

KOKUYO Logitem held its first training targeting delivery personnel working at distribution centers throughout Japan. The purpose of this training is to transform ways of thinking so that each distribution employee as a KOKUYO professional on the front line performs actions with customers in mind, increasing the value of the distribution section. Many employees from the KOKUYO Group also attended the recent first training session, bringing the total attendance to almost 50.

In the training, Mr. Teruo Yabe*, President of Omotenashi Company , was invited as a guest lecturer, and activities such as group discussion were held. This provided the attendees an excellent opportunity to reassess their work from the customer's perspective. Improvement activities will continue in the future as the training is expanded to distribution centers throughout Japan.

* Mr. Yabe transformed East Japan Railway Company's bullet train cleaning team into a hospitality team. For his initiative and achievement, Mr. Yabe received recognition for a well-managed hospitality company from Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and the Service Hospitality Award Special Prize from the Japan Institute of Information Technology.

Open Challenge Program that Expand Visions through Interactions with Human Resources from Different Industries

The Open Challenge Program (hereinafter referred to "OCP") is a cross-industry exchange training program that the KOKUYO Group has been participating in. Employees within the Group are invited to participate voluntarily.

The aims of the OCP are the expansion of visions (to become aware of their own potential); acquisition of knowledge, skills, and mindset required for future career formation; and meeting new people (building of external network).

The secretariats of participating companies give opinions and carefully choose the high-quality program. A questionnaire of the participants revealed high results for satisfaction.

Great benefits of this program include coming into contact with values that are different from those of KOKUYO in particular, and interacting with human resources from different industries. It is a good opportunity to form valuable personal connections.
