Statement regarding joining "the Ikuboss Corporate Alliance"
The Company has been promoting the creation of organization in which truly various human resources can play active roles. We believe that bouncing off and clashing ideas of people with different backgrounds and ways of thinking results in producing creative and advanced ideas that can be a breakthrough.
To create an organization in which truly various human resources can play active roles, it is necessary that those who manage human resources should change themselves in addition to having various human resources join the Company.
Today, those who are in managerial positions should not manage their people in uniformity but are required to be able to maximize results as organizations by the most appropriate management which utilizes each characteristic of subordinates who have various life and work styles.
In addition, managers are requested to support their people to produce better results in a shorter time, not relying on long working hours. We think that managers' fulfilled lives with efficient work and time to care children, rest, develop themselves and enjoy hobbies will lead to a change in climate in entire workplaces, and as a result, subordinates' behavior will change.
Taking this opportunity of joining to " the Ikuboss Corporate Alliance", Fujikura will accelerate measures to promote diversity and to reform the way of working to continuously grow and develop with "employees' working to their fullest" and "earning profits" at the same time.
