Our personnel policy is to employ diverse human resources that reflect a variety of career paths irrespective of nationality or gender.
To further promote the employment of physically or mentally challenged people, we established SWS Smile, Ltd. in May 2013 as a subsidiary that emphasizes the importance of hiring these individuals. SWS Smile commenced operations in June of that year and received certification as a special subsidiary in the following October.

Sumitomo Wiring Systems cultivates personnel who can keep pace with the globalization of our businesses.
