Promotion of Global HR Management
Sumitomo Electric Group‘s business activities are continuously becoming more diverse - in technologies, markets, geographical locations and more - involving over 180,000 employees in more than 30 countries around the world. We believe that for Sumitomo Electric Group to develop further globally and continue making significant contributions to society, it is essential that we fully mobilize the Group's technologies, products, business models and all other resources and acknowledge that it is employees that make all our endeavors possible.
In September 2011, we decided to adopt the “Global Human Resource Management Policy” as the Group's common basic worldwide policy, thereby clearly stating the Group's commitment to truly global human resource management. With this policy, Sumitomo Electric Group aims to accelerate globalization from the aspect of human resources and organization, provide various career opportunities regardless of nationality, race, gender or age, and pursue globally “the right person in the right position" along with diversity in order to fulfill our Policy.
