Basic Policy

We consider the development of human resources as a foundation for permanent prosperity of our company. Any person in the position of leadership will serve as a model of good behavior and positive attitude. He/She will make every effort to encourage colleagues, toward professional growth as employees and positive growth as individuals of society.
Accordingly, we continue to seek capable human resources and look for means to foster their humanitarianism, intellect, broad knowledge, deep insight, specialty and an international sense.

To achieve its corporate objectives and policies, the Rohm Group's education and training consists of (1) grade-by-grade education (a place for employees to acquire the knowledge, skills, and mindset needed for each grade, and for employees of similar ages and roles to interact and communicate across divisional boundaries); (2) organizational head education (acquisition of knowledge and skills needed to fulfil the role of organizational head); and (3) career education (focus on the individual's career, regardless of grade or role, think about one's own career with a self-directed attitude, and develop the ability to take action to fulfil one's own self-realization). It also has OJT and specialist education programs (education through actual duties in individual workplaces). Specific training programs are as follows.
