Building a company worth working at
Personnel development and technology succession

We offer our employees various learning opportunities by way of personnel development, career development and other means so that each and every employee can play an active role in their workplace.

Personnel development

Group's educational policy

In fiscal 2020, we revamped the Haseko Group Personnel Plan in step with the start of a new Medium-term Business Plan (NS Plan). Under the education slogan of “continuously produce independent individuals and nurture a diverse workforce that will shape the future of Haseko,” we will work to build human resources and organization required for achieving the NS Plan goals.

In fiscal 2023, we will actively make “investment in human assets” to boost corporate value and also to overcome difficulties. In addition, we will develop various initiatives to enable each and every employee to experience personal growth and job satisfaction.

Haseko Corporation's education system

In addition to fostering autonomous human resources and career development, we will implement various initiatives such as DX education, the development of innovative human resources and global human resources, and human rights and diversity education.

Priority Initiatives

  1. Linking the autonomous human resources development program with career development
    • We continuously hold training programs by job level for all job types in order to develop autonomous human resources who “can think and act on their own and create their own future” in the first 10 years after joining the Company.
    • We regard retaining young and mid-level employees, who will lead the Haseko Group in the future, as a top priority. We implement an ongoing Be3 system (a system where employees within three years of joining the Company receive support and coaching from older employees).
    • We have established opportunities for employees to consider their future careers through the 4th and 7th year training sessions to encourage “career autonomy,” where employees design their own career vision.
  2. Executive Leader Development Program
    • As a company targeting sustainable growth, we implement the Executive Leader Development Program, a selective program, while ensuring diversity. The program develops the consciousness and skills of participants at each level of the Company based on their roles and responsibilities.
      *In addition to the Executive Leader Development Program, we also develop head office officers and executives by rotating them as officers of each Group company in close coordination with each business of the Haseko Group. We have particularly focused on developing female officers in recent years, and approximately 70 female executives (of which 14 are officers) across the Group have worked actively at present.
  3. Personnel development to achieve new strategies (DX, innovative, global human resources)
    • We are implementing a range of DX education and innovation education to develop human resources capable of enhancing productivity through operational reforms and creating new businesses, as well as fostering an organizational culture that accepts and develops such human resources, all while continuing to refine Haseko’s DNA of “thinking while running.”
      *To develop human resources capable of enhancing productivity through operational reforms and creating new businesses, we have started the DX Academy with effect from fiscal 2022 in collaboration with Dean and Professor Ken Sakamura of Toyo University’s Faculty of Information Networking for Innovation And Design (INIAD) under the leadership of the Company’s President. In the first installment of the course, Professor Sakamura delivered DX training through e-learning to all Group employees (8,000 participants took the course), and in the second installment, 80 DX promotion leaders were selected from all Group companies to receive education for programming and presenting new ideas to top management.
    • We offer English training as an initiative to systematically generate global human resources in line with our aim to expand our businesses overseas.
      *100 or more employees across the Group companies to date have applied for the training and received it.
  4. Practical education by job type
    • We have strengthened the curriculum set by each company and division to enable young employees, who are key to achieving our business plans, to play an active role as soon as possible and enhance their education.
    • In particular, we have prepared a range of measures to help employees to obtain major qualifications as soon as possible.

Award ceremony of 16th “Haseko Residential Design Competition”

Haseko Corporation has been holding the “Haseko Living Design Competition” targeting students across Japan, with the aim of fostering young people who wish to work in the world of architecture. The competition, held since 2007, invites submission of apartment building designs derived from freewheeling thinking unique to students, under a theme that reflects the social challenges and trends of the times.
The theme for fiscal 2022 was “circulating collective housing,” which considers proposals for housing complexes that may explore new possible ways of responding to the environment. There was a total of 184 entries submitted (from 368 entrants). At the open judging session for the second round, we selected one first prize winner and three excellence award winners through presentations made by the four finalists who had passed the first round, and interviews and screening processes by the judges.
We will continue this program as a way to raise public interest in home and living, and cultivate talented students. (In fiscal 2023, the 17th year, we have begun accepting applications under the theme of “mixed collective housing.”)

The “Haseko Residential Design Competition” is certified as a Mecenat (a concept of promoting creation of a society through support of the arts and culture) Activity under This Is MECENAT 2023 organized by the Association for Corporate Support of the Arts.

Supporting the “Architectural Workshop MIYAJIMA”

Fujikensetsu Co., Ltd. is a supporter of the Architectural Workshop organized by Art & Architect Festa (AAF), an incorporated NPO. The purpose of this workshop is for the students majoring in architecture, environmental design and other disciplines “to build tangible pieces of work rooted in the unique features of the venue” under the guidance of instructors, mainly architects active in Japan and abroad. In fiscal 2022, the workshop was held at Itsukushima Shrine, and two design employees from Fujikensetsu Co., Ltd. participated as advisors. To create a small architectural space based on the historical context of Itsukushima Shrine, the 53 students from universities across Japan had prepared since June 2022 through site surveys and production camps. Their eight works were presented on August 28, 2022, with approximately 300 people attending.
