Training for Human Resource Development

In our training functions at SG Holdings Group, we view all of our personnel as an irreplaceable resource. We are striving to develop "problem-solving-typed leaders" who can create new value while solving the problems of customers and society as a whole. More specifically, our aim is to promote growth through hands-on OJT training, while also providing opportunities for individuals to add to their skills and knowledge through OFF-JT. By helping them grow, we are developing leaders who can take responsibility for the future of our business.

We strive to develop both individuals and organizations by maintaining high levels of motivation among all employees and promoting work environments in which employees can thrive with a self of fulfillment. To this end, we have strategically developed systems for reward and commendation to support an atmosphere in which employees are praised, recognized and thanked for their hard work.

This led to a significant decrease in travel and accommodation expenses.
