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 2019, we focused on building a cohesive corporate group bonded by the shared DNA of Haseko and training independent individuals who can adapt to the changes in circumstances and face up to difficulties with a sense of ownership, towards the goal of becoming a lasting company that keeps on growing.

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 2020, we will start providing joint cross-industry training and training through secondment, to continue to nurture a diverse workforce that will shape the future of Haseko.

Haseko Corporation's education system

We implement a wide range of measures, mainly comprising executive development courses and programs for training independent individuals. In fiscal 2019, the total number of training hours for all employees was 116,460 hours.

Training independent individuals

We have introduced a program for training independent individuals targeted at employees ranging from new recruits to employees who have been working for up to 10 years. In the first year of joining the Company, employees acquire the awareness and skills as a member of society through induction training in April, interval training in July and follow-up training in January. Training sessions are conducted by dividing the period up to the ninth year of employment into three, three-year stages, based on the following themes: "sense of ownership," "ability to be the driving force by getting others involved" and "leadership and problem-solving ability." After the training sessions, each employee prepares a goal-setting sheet (OJT sheet) and his/her growth is facilitated through the plan-do-check-act (PDCA) cycle while he/she communicates with his/her boss throughout the year.

Career development

We implement "CAP-10" as an initiative for each and every employee to formulate his/her career plan and check individual progress. Targeted at employees who celebrated their 10th and 20th anniversaries of employment and employees who reached the age of 50 and 60, they share their career vision through boss-subordinate dialog held once at each 10-year milestone. Employees determine their career direction and develop the means to refine their capabilities to fulfill their career direction.

In fiscal 2020, we will start providing joint cross-industry training and training through secondment, to continue to nurture a diverse workforce that will shape the future of Haseko.

Technology succession: Next-generation development support

Award ceremony of 13th "Haseko Living Design Competition"

Haseko 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.

theme for fiscal 2019 was “Multi-generations and multi-nationalities breathe new life into apartment houses,” in view of the challenges posed by generational issues such as aging population and fewer children, as well as the changes in the concept of home resulting from the surge in inbound tourism and growing number of foreign residents under the amended Immigration Control Act. There were a total of 258 entries submitted (from 544 entrants), from among which a first prize winner and three excellence award winners were selected, and prizes were presented at the ceremony held on December 21. For the first time, we held an open judging session for the second round, which was an attempt to cultivate talented students through interactions between the students and the judges. We will continue this program as part of our social contribution efforts and a way to raise public interest in home and living.

RIKOCHALLENGE in summer of 2019

Haseko participates in RIKOCHALLENGE―an initiative co-hosted by KEIDANREN (Japan Business Federation) and the Cabinet Office―as a supporting organization. We hold workplace tours targeted at female middle and high school students interested in the field of science and engineering to help them envision their future and make course decisions.

The tours were held on four days in July and August 2019, with a construction course entitled “Go on a condominium worksite tour with Hasejo (Haseko’s female employees)--Let’s go to see a 1,000-resident house!” and a design course named “Design a condominium with Hasejo--Let’s design your dream home!”, each comprising workplace experience session or site visit and a discussion with female employees at Haseko. The number of participants totaled 55 including guardians (Tokyo and Kansai regions combined).

Accepting company visits by junior high school students/high school students for learning

Since fiscal 2009, Haseko Corporation has been accepting company visits by students to give them the opportunity to think about their future occupational choices. In fiscal 2019, we accepted students from three schools in the Tokyo and Kansai regions and taught them about the nature of Haseko’s businesses and the joy of the condominium business through discussions with employees and workshops.

Workshop in progress

Supporting the “Architectural Workshop Izumo 2019”

Fujikensetsu Co., Ltd. is a supporter of the Architectural Workshop Izumo 2019 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” in Izumo city, Shimane prefecture, under the guidance of instructors, mainly architects active in Japan and abroad. A young designer of Fujikensetsu took part in the event as an advisor. Students engaged in a series of preparatory work beginning in June 2019, from site survey to production camp, to create a small architectural space based on the historical context that goes back to ancient times. Eight pieces of work were shown at the open presentation on September 1.
