|Program (2)||Education to strengthen global responsiveness
To accelerate globalization and diversity, it is essential to augment the capabilities and skills of divers human resources, including those of overseas Group companies. In order to develop human resources who will be responsible for the Group companies and reinforcing regional management of MHI Group, we are enhancing trainings for future candidates for regional and local management positions. In fiscal 2017, we revamped our training program contents and target group. We started to implement it in Bangalore, India for exceptional human resources who are recommended by Group companies in all over the world, as well as nominees from Japan. The training contents developed in collaboration with one of India’s leading business schools, these prospects participate in fieldwork in Bangalore a city which is attractive as a market and an advanced place for ICT startups. This combination has made for a diverse and exciting program.
In addition, since fiscal 2019 we have been implementing one of the two courses in Australia. By such measures, we are working to further enhance the program through improving access from North America and enhancing efficiency of advance learning in partnership with a leading business school in Australia.

|Program (3)||Development of junior technicians on the forefront of manufacturing
MHI has prepared textbooks that are standardized for the entire company to ensure the commonality and uniformity of education. We have also made DVDs of “Skills of the Masters" cultivated by veteran technicians, in order to retain them in digital data. These and other efforts seek to ensure the steady succession of techniques and the early development of junior technicians. In addition, with the aim of improving the level of expertise and energizing our junior technicians, we hold company-wide skills contests in machine assembly, lathing, welding, and other fields. We are also working to improve the leadership skills of employees who serve as instructors.
|Benefits||At MHI Group, the number of junior technicians is increasing as more senior technicians retire. For that reason, there is an urgent need to train technicians who can maintain the front line of manufacturing. This organizational training program aims to ensure that the skills of the senior technicians are passed on to the junior technicians.|

To promote human resource development that is unified throughout MHI Group, we conduct management training by job levels and business skills training as consistent programs across the Group.

At the same time, we are promoting interaction among participants that goes beyond companies and divisions, as we work to foster a sense of unity throughout the Group.
