Follow-up Training for New, Mid-career Hires

With the aim of, for example, acquiring knowledge from outside the Company and enhancing its business potential, SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group is increasingly active in mid-career appointments (the hiring of experienced personnel). After having joined the Company, however, there are more than a few examples of a lack of understanding with regard to the workplace culture or inhouse systems on the part of the mid-career hires themselves proving to be an obstacle to the process of having them display their skills at an early stage. Providing new, mid-career employees with the opportunity to learn the basic knowledge (including the Company’s history, culture, policies and systems), SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group draws on the high levels of competence and specialized skills mid-career employees have accumulated in previous positions and improves their workplace environment with follow-up training, so they can put those attributes to work and participate actively from an early stage.

Training Manager (Brother/Sister) Program

SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group has established a training manager (brother/sister) program aimed at enabling new employees to smoothly adapt to their assigned workplaces and quickly hit the ground running.The role of training managers goes beyond job-related instruction to play a role in providing guidance on how adult members of society should conduct themselves while following up on new employees’ state of mind. The program also encourages training managers to leverage their experience guiding junior employees to gain a new perspective and thereby grow themselves.
