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.
Program (4) Training activities for Group company employees
To promote human resource development that is unified throughout MHI Group, we conduct management training across the Group. We conduct this training for the entire MHI Group and increasing educational opportunities throughout 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.
Benefits This program aims to strengthen the management and business quality of the entire MHI Group.
