Idemitsu offers support to enable each employee to autonomously build their career and work with a sense of satisfaction. For career building, we make departmental introduction materials available to all employees as a way of providing information to deepen understanding of the Company’s departments and operations. To revise career plans, we will hold a career plan seminar in fiscal 2020 that helps employees sort out not just what they want to do but also what they can and should do.
In FY2019, we held workshops throughout Japan, including at overseas bases. In the first workshop, 600 managers, who have subordinates from different backgrounds, participated in a skill and mindset training program aimed at understanding events that are likely to occur during the integration phase and facilitating the smooth integration. In the second workshop, we encouraged representatives of both managers and staff in charge to further promote understanding of the management vision and to set their own declaration of conduct to achieve it.

On July 24, Idemitsu Kosan invited Dr. Iwao Nakatani from Fushiki-an (Japan’s elite educational institution for corporates), to give a lecture for some sixty executives and department/office managers. The objective was to encourage them to cultivate the ability to look at things from diverse perspectives by studying liberal arts and use this to examine and discuss various projects. As the lecture topic, Dr. Nakatani led the participants using “the present time” to reconnect with the history in the past and predict what future will be, and then re-evaluate their personal lives, the corporate business, and the development of the country.
