Fostering Personnel and Personnel Policies
Based on the belief that the development of excellent personnel is a prerequisite for the production of excellent products, NSSMC is actively rolling out programs to strengthen the overall capabilities of each employee. Specifically, the identification of skills and capabilities required for certain worksites are being identified and corresponding on-the-job training is being planned and executed through dialogue between a supervisor and his/her subordinate. In addition, training geared to specific career levels and various types of off-the-job training sessions are conducted to complement the basic plan. Moreover, a booklet Iron-man Will is distributed to all employees to help them understand our corporate philosophy and Employee Action Guidelines as well as our human development programs.
NSSMC’s administering of personnel policies aim at encouraging our employees to grow and develop their overall capabilities. We also find it important. to ensure fair treatment of all employees. Furthermore, we have various measures that support our employees’ childcare. In April 2013, we implemented a “work at home” system to give employees time for child care, and a rehiring program for employees who previously left the company for child or elderly care and other reasons.
As part of the workplace vitalization measures, JKJK is an acronym for jishu kanri (voluntary management). Small groups are formed on a voluntary basis to achieve selfactualization and pass skills and expertise on to future generations. Convention, skill triathlon games, and the Electric Instrumentation Section skills competition for the whole NSSMC Group are held for our employees and our business partners.
Skill Transfer and Constant Hiring Support Our Sustained Growth
Our veteran employees are relaying their accumulated skills and know-how to the next generation of young workers in their manufacturing worksites. The method of transferring skills has been evolved by systemized teaching methods such as visualized work procedures and comprehension tests.
