The NAGASE Group HR Development Policy and Approach
The NAGASE Group believes that human resource development strengthens the business foundations undergirding the Group’s growth. We hold Group-wide training by job title and sponsor ongoing training for local staff, engaging in global unified human resource development programs that bring the comprehensive functions of the NAGASE Group to bear.
HR development programs form the foundation of our corporate activities. These programs consist of an organized combination of on-the-job and off-the-job training. On-the-job training lets employees experience real-world work in a variety of roles to gain new knowledge and skills. Off-the-job training also involves training and gaining skills through both formal lectures and self-directed learning. The NAGASE Group promotes on-the-job training, while at the same time ensuring employees are able to learn knowledge and skills for their continued growth. These programs include rank-specific training for young staff, training for managers, and position-specific training to ensure employees have the necessary knowledge and skills to perform their work. We have emphasized the following three points among our various development policies. We will continue to revise Group education and training programs according to changes in the external business environment and NAGASE Group strategy.
