The Sumitomo Electric Group has diversified its business activities in every aspect, including technologies, markets and geographical locations, employing about 190,000 people in more than 30
countries around the world.
In view of the Group's global development, we established the Global Human Resource Management Policy ("Global HRM Policy") in September 2011 as the common basic policy regarding human resource
management. The Global HRM Policy is to be applied in the Group worldwide, thereby offering greater career opportunities, promoting diversity, and fostering future global leaders.
While continuing these efforts, we have launched "The Global HRM Policy Site" to inform readers in and outside of the Group about the Policy and deepen their understanding of our activities
on human resource management.
The site consists of several sections such as "Global HRM Policy," "Our Approaches of Human Resource Management" and "About the Sumitomo Electric Group." The "Our Approaches of Human Resource
Management" section, for example, introduces employees from around the world who have improved their skills through work experience and training programs to fulfill their potential. We are planning to enhance
this site by regularly posting new stories of Group employees who are playing an active role in their respective fields.
