Stable employment

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 in accordance with the policies of the Hitachi Group to stably secure human resources and long-term employment. This includes initiatives to achieve work-life management, 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.

Labor-management dialogue

Hitachi Construction Machinery places importance on dialogue between labor and management. Various labor-management committees, including the Executive Council, meet regularly, and when necessary, opinions are exchanged with the labor union.

In FY2017, we once again held various labor-management committee meetings to discuss numerous issues, including the smooth implementation of management and business development, and measures to improve labor conditions for union members.

Going forward, Hitachi Construction Machinery aims to achieve its management goals and undertake solutions to its issues by developing mutual understanding through dialogue between labor and management.
