Specialist Training Support
Casio will increase its training menu and expand its training aimed at engineers wanting to advance their expertise in order to support the careers of employees as specialists. In training for new hire engineers, Casio provides group training and creative planning workshops aimed at giving them basic technology skills. This is part of Casio’s efforts to develop employees’ basic skills as engineers.
In addition, Casio helps employees improve their expertise by offering skill selective training (specialized skills) so that employees can acquire the necessary skills in their own engineering field. Employees can choose the subjects they need from about 600 courses. In addition, Casio provides support to broaden its employees’ perspectives and accelerate the speed of their growth. For example, Casio offers cross-industry association training in which employees are selected to participate with engineers from other companies in learning skills together and stimulating each other as they grapple with issues. Casio will continue to increase measures to raise engineer specialized skills.
Appropriate management by supervisors is essential for employees as they independently shape their careers. With this aim, managers are given training on practical content such as how to run an organization in which subordinates will act independently and management methods that will motivate subordinates, as well as training to deepen their understanding on goal (KPI) setting, evaluations and feedback interviews in the new evaluation system.
This system supports people who want to take up the challenge of new work and work with which they have no experience. By recruiting based on divisions’ needs and rotating human resources actively, the organization is energized and employees are assigned to the right position. Senior employees, who were not covered by the previous job assignment system, are eligible for this program. Casio will provide an environment in which employees can utilize the wealth of experience they have built up and can perform with great energy even after retirement age.
Second Career Support
Casio has introduced a career change support service and a dual-occupation/second occupation system and supports employees in realizing their career paths to help employees in their 50s and 60s consider their life plans and devise an independent approach to their life and work.
New Employee Training, Follow-up Training, Second-Year Training
Training for young employees is offered for new entrants as well as for first-year and second-year employees so that they can learn the basics of being a Casio employee and look back at their own approach to work.
In fiscal 2022, to meet the demands of the “new normal” of the current era, Casio will expand training opportunities for newly hired employees and will provide training for staff in charge of on-the-job training and supervisors who have newly-hired employees under their command.
Skill Selective Training
The training targets all regular employees, for the objective of effectively and efficiently acquiring diverse skills required for work operations, in a training program that allows employees to select from a large variety of training courses. The targeted skills are divided into three categories: specialized skills, strategic skills, and interpersonal skills.
Beginning in fiscal 2020, Casio systematized the skills needed for young employees to systematically train young employees. The program was changed so that employees in their first through fifth years as new graduate hires attend the designated skill training once a year. This is intended to improve the basic skills of young employees.
This program uses workshops and seminars with specific themes to connect people who have something to say or who want to learn something, thus using this shared goal to build personal networks and improve individuals’ skills. People from a wide range of occupations and backgrounds gather together in the same place to discuss the same theme at workshops and seminars, regardless of hierarchy. This is an opportunity to build personal networks that will be useful in work and is expected to be a catalyst in stimulating communication overall.
This is an exhibition event held annually for the objectives of stimulating engineers, and sharing and accumulating technology. In Techno Power, Casio solicits new technology and know-how created in-house and recognizes projects with outstanding levels of technology and/or excellence of concept. This encourages venturing into new technology by establishing a forum for announcing results and offering recognition.
In-house specialist seminars
These are lectures by outside trailblazers in advanced technology and innovators who were able to develop revolutionary new products and create new businesses.
Recent themes have been selected from multi-faceted perspectives, going beyond technology trends. They include leading-edge technology trends with high levels of originality and technology, and ways of thinking to create new products. Approximately 200 employees took part.
Opportunities to take language exams such as TOEIC and VERSANT are offered three times a year, and their motivation to study is raised by regularly providing opportunities to measure the effect of their studies.
