The Life-Career Support Center was established in July 2021 as part of measures to address the need to help each employee clarify their career plans, a company-wide issue identified via the FY2020 employee engagement survey. By enabling employees to utilize this consultation desk specializing in life and career issues, we are further supporting each employee’s independent career building efforts and addressing concerns related to their life and career.
Although basic consultation regarding employees’ life-and career-related issues is provided by their immediate supervisors with the cooperation of the Human Resources Department, the Life-Career Support Center offers face-toface interviews conducted by certified career counselor. In order to ensure neutrality and confidentiality, these in-house counselor are totally independent from those authorized to determine human resource allocations. The center provides employees with opportunities to examine their career issues from a broader perspective and gain new insights, thereby contributing to improvement in employee engagement through meticulous support.
In addition, we appoint “part-time advisors” from among employees to provide consultation regarding a broad range of career issues. When necessary, career counselor set up interviews attended by part-time advisors with the consent of employees seeking consultation. With part-time advisors contributing their insights based on their own experience, this support framework is designed to enable employees to discover their own routes to resolving their issues.
