Improving Organizational Health Index

Organizational Health Index and Promotion structure

The Hitachi Construction Machinery Group is working to improve organizational health index with the aim of creating a comfortable and dynamic work environment.

Organizational health index is also referred to as corporate culture, employee awareness, and corporate style, and is an indispensable wheel for improving performance in order for a company to achieve innovation. Hitachi Construction Machinery launched the Organizational Health Workstream in 2017, centered on the Human Resources Department, as a cross-departmental function. We also plan, formulate, and implement measures to improve organizational health index, and disseminate information both inside and outside the company.

Conducting employee surveys

The Hitachi Construction Machinery Group conducts an employee survey every year to understand the actual state of organizational health and confirm the improvement effects of various measures. This survey is conducted by the entire Hitachi Group, and in FY2020, approximately 12,000 domestic and overseas employees participated in the Hitachi Construction Machinery Group. Approximately 2,300 of these are manufacturing personnel, and we have begun deployment in this year.

The results of the survey are disclosed to employees through posting on the company intranet, and are also used in efforts to improve each workplace.

Efforts to improve Organizational Health

Based on the results of employee surveys, Hitachi Construction Machinery is working to improve organizational health by steadily executing the PDCA cycle of identifying issues, planning and implementing measures, and confirming and reflecting on the effects.

In identifying issues and planning measures, we will work to materialize the measures through workshops involving not only executives but also young employees, appoint a person in charge for each measure, and manage milestones and continue to realize the measures. Through such follow-up, we are leading to the achievement of our goals.

Since the launch of the Organizational Health Workstream in 2017, we have mainly focused on enhancing internal communication, strengthening management and management skills, securing human resources in strengthening fields utilizing internal and external channels, and evaluating treatment, review of treatment evaluation system, execution of career development, cultivation and strengthening of customer interest first (CIF), and improvement of work environment.
