Developing the Next Generation of Group Personnel
Local staff development
Since fiscal 2018, the Meiden Group has been conducting a Japanese exchange program for local staff (employees of overseas subsidiaries) in order to develop personnel who are candidates for leadership positions at overseas subsidiaries. The program includes interaction with Meidensha management, observations at Japanese sites and factories to which products are delivered, and on-the-job training at various workplaces for the purpose of increasing preparedness to take on leadership roles and the knowledge necessary for top management positions in the Meiden Group.
Establishment of the Career Development Management Program
In fiscal 2019, Meidensha established the Career Development Management Program, which is a program for developing new personnel for the purpose of systematically and strategically developing the next generation of personnel. We aim to develop personnel that can think and act with a broad perspective and outlook that exceed the bounds of their own areas of specialty and roles by selecting and recruiting young and mid-level personnel to attend business school and engage in professional exchange with people outside of their own business divisions, factories, and business units, engage in personal exchange with overseas subsidiaries and Japanese subsidiaries, and engage in cultural exchange through placement outside of the Group and at government institutions, etc.
