April 19, 2016,10:00 +0900(JST) Message to Our New Staff Members

On April 1, we held a ceremony to welcome our new staff members. We are truly pleased that we were able to welcome many fresh members to our group once again this year.

At the ceremony, I stood on the stage, and each of the new staff members was called by his or her name, and then responded to the call before standing up. From the stage, I was able to see each of their faces clearly. While some looked nervous, some appeared confident and some uneasy. When I was a new employee, I guess I looked spineless.

Afterwards, I delivered my message to the new staff members, which could be summarized in the following three points:
- Master the basics of your work and do your work conscientiously based on the Sumitomo Spirit
- Strive to become a professional through constant efforts to improve and develop yourself
- Take great care of your communication with others

Although they will experience many ups and downs in their careers in our group, I am sure that they will be able to overcome their difficulties, as long as they always remain strongly aware of the above points. I sincerely hope that while taking due care of their health and safety, they will enjoy working in our group and demonstrate their capabilities to the fullest extent possible.
