Creation of a Vigorous and Lively Workplace

Basic Approach

The Sumitomo Wiring Systems Group has a mission to continue serving our stakeholders while also pursuing continued growth and global competitiveness for many years to come.

In the light of the rapid environmental change that we are seeing, it is becoming more and more important to quickly, accurately and proactively bring together people from diverse backgrounds, gather up their knowledge and ideas, and move things forward.

By bringing these people together, training them, and giving them the opportunity to fully display their talents, the Sumitomo Wiring Systems Group aims to be a company which has "rewarding and stimulating working environment".

We promote an environment where more achievements can be displayed by individuals and as a company, by promoting "Diversity & Inclusion" as a part of management strategy.

D&I Promotion (The three pillars)

1. Management reform

By putting the Sumitomo Wiring Systems Group and the SWS WAY at the core, we aim at a management style which is not constrained by fixed concepts, but which focuses on a flexible response to the changing times and environment through group management and human resources.

2. Change in working style.

While respecting various working styles, we are setting up a working environment in which each individual can demonstrate his or her strengths by means of a working system and personnel strategies, and allowing them to continue their career, develop their abilities, provide them with more opportunities for success, and fulfil their desires.

3. Promoting diversity

Whilst proactively supporting employees in achieving work-life balance while also producing results, we train managers who can enjoy their own work and life while supporting their staff and improving the group's results.

Policy for Cultivating Human Resources

Our personnel division is devoted to implementing educational activities rooted in the “Three aspects of personnel development (mind, skills and substance)” in order to develop human resources that reflect our philosophy and policy. At the same time, the Sumitomo Wiring Systems Group directs its combined efforts toward quickly cultivating global human resources that can adapt to the globalization of our business. In addition to developing globally competitive employees, we will continue to foster human resources by providing both company- and department-wide training to build employee capacity.

Personnel Philosophy

We will create a corporate culture that provides a positive working environment for every employee, which is driven by our belief in their individual potential, and which is in accord with their eagerness to take on challenges.
