Human Resources Management

Major Initiatives

Shift to a role-based management system for human resources

After undertaking a major renewal of the human resources management system from fiscal 2020, operations commenced in fiscal 2022 as planned.

  • Qualification system
    : Introduced a key position grading system for management, abolished appointment probation periods, and started a successor training system.
  • Retirement extension
    : Extended from 60 to 65 (implemented by SEKISUI CHEMICAL and specific Group companies from October 2021, implementation completed at all Group companies by fiscal 2025).
  • Evaluation/career
    : Introduced a system to evaluate challenges, revamped career interviews.
  • Bonus payment system
    : Expanded the indicator ratio that measures the progress and achievement of Group-wide KPIs related to sustainability (approx. 6% → approx. 12%; SEKISUI CHEMICAL management, from fiscal 2023)
  • System
    : Started visualizing and utilizing employee qualitative information through a new human resource system.

In fiscal 2022, we included challenging behavior as an evaluation item and strengthened evaluator training to ensure that the system is operated properly.
