Promoting a Deepening of Global Management from the Perspective of Human Resources Initiatives and Talent Development

Based on our Corporate Business Plan, with the slogan “Change and Innovation—Create New Value,” Sumitomo Chemical’s basic HR (Human Resources) policy is to encourage employees to grow through carrying out rewarding and worthwhile day-to-day duties and bring about the sustainable growth of the Sumitomo Chemical Group through their individual growth.

In order to achieve this, we are continuing to create environments and organizations that make it easy for employees to work. We are also enhancing various measures to secure, develop, and encourage the active participation of talented employees, in order to develop our businesses around the world while creating new value. In particular, we are working at a global level on our HR initiatives and human resources development, promoting a deepening of global management from a HR perspective.

As a platform supporting the execution of these measures, Sumitomo Chemical has implemented an HR system based on duties (roles) that enables employees with the desire and capability to take on the challenge of a broad range of advanced duties regardless of age, gender, or nationality, and that treats in an appropriate way employees who work hard and contribute. This unified HR system applies not only in Japan, but also to those in the manager layer and above in overseas Group companies.

In terms of personnel evaluation, we do not just look at results. We also put emphasis on what actions were taken to produce those results, and on what sorts of processes and attitudes employees bring to their work. In this way, we support not only the pursuit of short-term results, but also the medium- and long-term growth of the company and the talent development of employees.
