Training/human resources development system

By creating a system that allows employees to independently advance their careers toward their own career goals, we support the further growth of each individual employee.

Training/human resources development system

A variety of training systems that support employee growth

More than 200 qualification acquisition support systems centered on IT qualifications

We actively support an environment where employees can acquire qualifications for their own growth.

We have identified over 200 key qualifications that are in line with the company's business, and provide subsidies for exam fees and acquisition of qualifications.
In addition, employees can take up to five days of paid leave (Skills development leave) per year to study for qualifications or to take exams.
