Human resource development and UtilizationHuman Resource Development

Basic Policy

In order to train individuals who can succeed globally, human resource development is being enhanced through both On the Job Training (main focus), as well as Off the Job Training (supporting function).
For On the Job Training, assignment initiatives are being implemented, including promotion of field experience and recommendations for overseas assignments of young staff early in their careers to develop professionalism.
For Off the Job Training, a review of the company-wide training system was conducted starting in the year ended March 2017. As a result, the Marubeni Global Academy (MGA) has been improved and enhanced as the support function to achieve the Marubeni Group human resources strategy stipulated in GC2018. Implementing the MGA programs on a global Group level will help to promote self-improvement efforts of employees and to raise the personnel level of the entire Marubeni Group.
