Restructuring

Product Development Headquarters

  • For more efficient systems business development, the development structure organized to date along product lines has been restructured into a development structure organized along function lines. Specifically, the Product Engineering Department and the four sections of the Product Development Department have been reorganized into a Promotion Planning Department and four Product Development Department sections, which are separated along function lines of hardware and software development.

Global Marketing Headquarters

  • In order to strengthen timepiece marketing activities outside of Japan, the Timepiece Department of the Overseas Sales Division has been restructured into the Timepiece Sales Department, which markets to overseas distributors, and the Timepiece Planning and Marketing Department, which provides support for overseas sales companies.
  • In order to strengthen the marketing, IT strategies, human resource development, and other functions of the Global Marketing Headquarters, sales employee positions have been reorganized. A new Sales Planning and Administration Department has been established to handle business management and human resources training, and certain functions of the Sales Administration Department and Marketing and Planning Department have been transferred to this new department. In addition, the Sales Administration Department has been renamed the Business Process Re-engineering and Administration Department and focuses on supporting sales in the field and improving productivity through business operation reforms.

General Affairs Department

  • In order to strengthen ESG management, the functions of the Sustainability Promotion Department that promote environmental activities and social contribution activities have been consolidated in the General Affairs Department, which handles governance, and these functions have been integrated. The Sustainability Promotion Department itself has been eliminated.
