Initiatives for Changes in Work Style

Human Resource Development System

The Chiyoda Group has the human resource development system to strengthen organization and management skills and to support individual professionalization.

Further, for employee’s self-development activities, there is a system for supporting the employees to acquire qualifications recommended for their duties.
