Basic policies on human resources
Hitachi Construction Machinery aims to optimize the capabilities of each employee and contribute the growth of the company overall by combining these capabilities. This is based on the company’s action guidelines—Set goals to challenge (foster affinity), combine ideas and gumption, and train and utilize human resources.
Employment and hiring focuses heavily on securing human resources that will implement the 3C’s of the Kenkijin spirit*. Based on these action guidelines and the Kenkijin spirit, we are looking for people who have a strong spirit, are independent, enthusiastic, positive, and considerate, and will continue to move forward in the frontlines, staying ahead of changes in society and the world.
We are working to create a comfortable workplace to stably secure human resources and long-term employment. This includes initiatives to achieve work-life balance, which seeks to create harmony between work and private life, and an extensive human resources compensation system.
Employee regulations specifically outline rules including adequate work hours, time off, overtime, legal holidays and vacations. We operate a system to manage working hours to remain in compliance with these regulations. There are also comprehensive initiatives in place to manage the health of our employees. Efforts are being made to prevent overwork (in general working late-night hours are prohibited) and alleviate overtime.
In addition, we are actively engaging in diversity management to diversify our personnel and gain access to various capabilities and competencies. Going forward, in line with our medium and long-term business plan, we plan to secure essential personnel and implement training that will quickly equip personnel with necessary expertise. In addition, we are promoting work style reforms to more efficiently create added value. We aim to create a work environment where all of our employees have purpose and can optimally leverage their skills.
