Development of Human Resources
Promoting Global Human Resource Development
Throughout the Group, Sysmex has more than 8,445 employees (as of March 31, 2018) building its business globally, with overseas employees accounting for more than 58% of this total. In order to put into practice the “Sysmex Way,” our Group corporate philosophy, under these circumstances and instill confidence in people around the world, augmenting the skills of individuals is important. We believe it is also essential to foster communication among diverse human resources, encouraging the mutual sharing of values and fostering new insights that will lead to new values and deepen cultural awareness through the joining of creative forces.
In this spirit, we have created a groupwide global human resource development system in fiscal 2014. We cultivate a sense of unity in business activities and the workplace and develop next-generation human resources. We are also reinforcing networks within the Group and undertaking various measures to foster intercultural understanding.
Human Resource Development Based on Four Concepts
New employee training
Based on its four concepts for human resource development (“link training, evaluation and work (show results),” “promote globalization of the Sysmex Group,” “invest in ongoing human resource development” and “be a company that cultivates human resources and personal growth”), Sysmex Corporation operates a training system offering selective, rank-based and elective training that seeks to nurture personnel in a planned and gradual manner. In fiscal 2017, on average each employee underwent 15.4 hours of training, and average per-employee expenditure amounted to ¥103,000*.
We have also opened the Global Communication Center (GCC) in Ashiya, Hyogo Prefecture, to serve as a gathering place for people of diverse cultures and values, both inside and outside the Company. At the GCC, we conduct various types of training based on Sysmex’s human resource development system, as well as cross-divisional study sessions and joint retreats for global personnel.
* This figure indicates training provided by the Human Resources Division and excludes certain types of training, such as self-development and training related to specialized work for divisions.
