Respect for Employees : Human Resource Development

Coordinated Human Resource Development across the Group

We have been engaged in human resource development in a group-wide effort. Our educational programs include the Logical Thinking Training Program for younger generations; the Managers Training Programs for newly assigned general managers, managers and assistant managers; and the Technical Leaders Program (TLP) for younger technical leaders selected based on the perspective of Management of Technology (MOT). Through these cross-company programs, we have been encouraging personal exchanges to cultivate the sense of unity across group members and establish a group-wide human network.

To assist employees in their self-development activities, a financial support system has been established to reimburse those who completed a correspondence course for the full amount of the course fee; in fiscal 2021, there were a total of 3,443 applications (up 86 from the previous year) across the group. We also offer a financial aid program to pay the full amount of TOEIC test fee to promote language skill enhancement efforts.

Meanwhile, in order to foster our next-generation leaders, we conduct the Next-Generation Management Training Program and the Toyo Seikan Group Business College (TSGBC) for general managers and managers, respectively, of key group companies. Through these programs, attendees are expected to gain “knowledge” on management and establish the “core” as a leader.

In fiscal 2021, we launched a group-wide periodic recruitment system for new college graduates*. Enhancing cooperation among group companies in fostering talent, we are advancing our efforts to establish a strong human resource base through various opportunities for human resource development.

  • *The group-wide recruitment system covers seven group companies: Toyo Seikan Group Holdings, Toyo Seikan, Toyo Kohan, Tokan Kogyo, Nippon Closures, Toyo Glass and Mebius Packaging.
