Panasonic has established the Human Resources Development Company (HRDC) as an organization that specializes in human-resources-related education and training for employees of all levels.
In broad terms, Panasonic's training falls under one of three areas: job-rank-based talent fostering, including executive development and management enhancement; job-function-specific training (technical, manufacturing, etc.); and self-development, which includes programs for increasing skill levels. In job-rank-based talent fostering, for instance, the HRDC is engaged in nurturing leadership in order to put the Panasonic management philosophy into practice. As part of this area, the HRDC provides training aimed at enhancing management ability among those in charge of organizations as a requirement.
In other areas, as well, the HRDC conducts specialized training. (The following are examples.)
- Technology Training
Offers training in technology management, hardware, software, product safety, and information security
- Manufacturing Training
Offers training in skills for manufacturing, as well as skill training related to quality management, environment management, and manufacturing technologies
