Supporting employees in improving their skills
The goal of SMK’s training system is to develop human resources who are self-starters, independent, and capable of helping themselves and taking responsibility for their actions, with strong levels of motivation to assume new challenges. To achieve this goal, SMK is developing a training system that provides training for each grade and each job group from new employees through managers, to help each and every employee nurture his or her abilities on a continual basis.
Training for new employees
Training for new employees includes training provided upon joining the company, three-month interviews, training provided six months after joining the company, and training provided in the third year after joining the company. In addition to this grade-based training, introductory and beginning-level training is provided for each job group, such as sales, engineering, and production management, as well as on-the-job training in the sections to which employees are assigned, distance learning (with tuition assistance available), and other training. In this way, employees are provided with the knowledge and skills they need to become human resources who can promote transnational management, through combination of a diverse range of training programs.
In addition to on-the-job training, new employees are assigned mentors with whom they may discuss a wide range of concerns, not limited to work and career development.
Also, e-learning and distance-learning programs are available for prospective employees who have received job offers.
