Fostering independent personnel entails a pair of important issues: developing human resources who think and act proactively; and building a climate in which all are free to engage in their work in a self-directed manner. Casio takes a three-pronged approach to this with a focus on three specific programs: promoting health and productivity management; fostering independent personnel; and strengthening management.
Casio regards health and productivity management to be a fundamental component of routine business operations and has focused on this issue, as demonstrated by the Casio Basic Policy on Health. Additionally, to equip human resources for today’s era of digital transformation (DX), in 2021 we established a Digital Division to promote relevant retraining of existing employees and expand mid-career recruitment efforts in line with our future business strategies.
In terms of fostering independent personnel, Casio has adopted a vision of the ideal employee as one who thinks and acts proactively, and thereby contributes to the company’s growth and development. We aim to foster an organizational culture in which employees are equipped to grasp changes in the world pertinently, adapt their responses flexibly, perceive the essence of issues in order to build new frameworks, and promote the evolution of the organization as a whole while sharing their expertise with colleagues.
The future calls upon us to create new value by combining the strengths of employees’ diverse values. The leadership skills of those in management positions are also an important factor in building an open-minded work environment where our diverse people can apply their abilities to the fullest extent and all can play an active role. At Casio, we value diversity among the people tasked with organizational decision-making. Accordingly, we are working to enhance management skills overall and taking specific steps to ensure more women serve in management positions.
