Panasonic has established the Human Resources Development Company (HRDC) as an organization that specializes in human-resources-related development and training for employees of all levels worldwide.
The HRDC provides training to new hires (in Japan) so that new employees can quickly become active at Panasonic. It also offers business skills training that teaches IT, communications, languages, and other skills required to facilitate employee tasks. Job-function-specific training is provided as well so that employees can learn the specialized knowledge and skills needed to accomplish their tasks, whether they be technical, manufacturing, or sales and marketing. In addition, HRDC offers elective management development training for employees who meet certain conditions, management skill training meant to give managers greater management capabilities and the ability to practically implement Panasonic’s management philosophy, and other forms of job rank-based training.
Starting in April 2020, we began releasing free training content on our corporate intranet with a view to stimulating self-driven study, making study a daily habit, boosting personal growth, and better achieving organizational targets. This is part of Panasonic's efforts to further accelerate employees' independent professional development. We will keep working to further enhance and expand training in many dimensions, including by offering online training options.
