October 19, 2016,16:00 +0900(JST) Autumn Ceremony to Welcome and Encourage New Staff Members
On October 3, we held an autumn ceremony to welcome and encourage our new staff members. The event was attended by those who had just entered the company that day and mid-career workers who had joined us in the first half of this fiscal year.
Compared with the ceremony held this spring, the number of participants, 55, was smaller, but it must have been a special day for each of them.
When each person's name was called in a solemn atmosphere, he or she replied "Yes!" From the serious look on their faces, we felt their expectations and enthusiasm for the future.
In my welcome address, I made the following three requests to the new members, by expressing my warm welcome and encouragement to them:
- Ensure that your work is based on the Sumitomo Spirit, understand it well, and implement it conscientiously;
- Strive to become professionals through constant efforts to improve and develop yourselves; and
- Take great care with your communication with others.
I hope that as members of the Sumitomo Electric Group they will pay close attention to their physical conditions and safety, and develop fulfilling and wonderful careers.
