Together with our employees

The most important management resource for a trading company is undoubtedly its human resources. To drive sustainable growth, we promote the development of human resources and the creation of an environment that enables the execution of our action guideline FYT (pronounced “fight”). This guideline expresses our commitment to always be Flexible and to think and act Young when Trying to take on challenges.

Implementing the idea that “everyone is a corporate manager”
Human resource strategy/Diversity management

As our business activities become more global and the market environment undergoes abrupt change, diversity and taking on challenges are keys to driving sustainable growth. This is because diversity enables us to look at risk as an opportunity, and when we take on challenges we can take full advantage of these opportunities. To make this a reality, the Kaga Electronics Group promotes diversity management in terms of making effective use of diversity in human resources and in work style. At the same time, we respect our human resources who continue to take on challenges and see each person as a corporate manager. With this in mind, we will keep protecting our corporate culture of tolerating failure as a consequence of tackling challenges.

To create a safe work environment
Education and welfare program

At the Kaga Electronics Group, we support the career development of employees through training to new recruits, annual training, rank-based training and other forms of education, as well as by providing assistance with correspondence courses.
In addition, we grant refreshment leave every year to all employees, which is separate from normal paid leave. We have also established an accumulated leave system for the three major diseases (cancer, cerebral stroke and acute myocardial infarction) as compensation for hospitalization after contracting a serious disease and for missing work when recuperating, as well as hourly paid leave system. Further, we have established welfare facilities that include resorts in Japan and abroad, a contract golf course, a company getaway house and a cruisers boat, with utilization rates at a high level. Through such initiatives as these, we aim to strike a good work-life balance for a safer work environment for employees.
