We strive to support not just professional growth, but growth as human beings as well. And to this end, we have prepared programs that enhance broader education and programs that support employees at different life stages. We expect all employees to grow as personnel who proactively give back to the community, realizing they each play the leading role in their own story.
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.
