When we mention the word “diversity,” we know it concerns variously grouped parties we must direct our actions to; females, disabled, and elderly people. We recognize that we now embrace growing diversity components while running daily operations. To execute our management strategy, I think it essential to add to the depth of human resources possessing diverse viewpoints, thoughts, experiences, career backgrounds, and national origins. The employees we hired following the said idea have already started making positive changes to the Company in many areas of operation.
We introduced a job-based personnel administration system to compensate employees for fulfilling their respective pre-defined assignments. Jobs may be assigned to any employee regardless of the duration of service at the Company, schools they graduated from, or who the previous employers are. Employees qualify for any job so long as they can get that done.
Under the group’s past system, an accumulated service duration was the most critical factor determining employees’ promotions and pay raises. So, employees who had to take temporary leave for child care suffered a disadvantage. The new system does not affect them regarding the treatment they receive when they resume the jobs they were engaged in before. We introduced the practice that encourages employees in varying personal situations can work vividly.
I think the essence of the word “diversity” can be rephrased by the idea, “get rid of an obsession with the past.” I am proud to say that the Company has set a level field where employees can shine regardless of their work-related backgrounds and past experiences they have come through.
I will drive the “Diversity” initiative to increase our corporate value by directing the group to induce employees to challenge our goals steadfastly.
