EXEDY Group's CSR Activities


Global Human Resources Development

Human Resources Development Program

At the EXEDY Group, we put effort in the development of new graduates. Since FY2016, we set up individual "ten-year training plans" for each new graduate, and carry out training based this plan. Once every four months, Human Resources representatives hold one-on-one interviews and discuss work and the workplace environment. Each department prepares detailed yearly plans on which we base the education so employees acquire technologies and know-how in a timely way. We also carry out strategic rotation including overseas training. This system allows our employees to gain valuable experience at a young age.

Stratisfied Education and Training Programs

Aiming to develop human resources who will contribute to the sustainable growth and evolution of the EXEDY Group, we have many educational programs in palce that seamlessly draw and execute the future image and growth of employees according to each level, age group, and purpose, as shown in the figure below.

Stratisfied Education and Training Programs

In addition to our in-house courses, we provide 141 correspondence courses as well. The company covers 50% of the tuition fee for employees who complete a course.
In addition to courses related to manufacturing, we offer a wide variety of courses such as management and business skills, languages and OA skills.

GETS Lectures

GETS (Global EXEDY Technical School) was established in 2012 to support the employees trying to learn on their own initiative. Here we mainly carry out stratified education and specialized manufacturing training. In this specialized manufacturing training, in addition to practical basic skills and knowledge, we teach skills that can be used in the workplace, in levels ranging from basic to expert. Rather than learning while seated at a desk, we incorporate a lot of education where employees get to master skills by practicing. We hand down technology taking advantage of the experience of in-house and OB lecturers. Some courses are attended by people outside our company to learn the basics of manufacturing.

Global Management Training

The EXEDY Group, with bases all over the world, carries out management training to strengthen the management of overseas production bases and sales companies. The EXEDY WAY, which is the core of our company, embodies our values and way of thinking and leads the way to evolution globally. As managers at the various locations share this way of thinking, we are able to achieve further development.

Top Seminars

Top SeminarsSince 2012 we have been inviting well-known individuals and people from our top management to EXEDY Headquarters to hold lectures. Until 2019, we held a total of 25 lectures. Through these lectures our employees learn about different ideas and perspectives. We hope this encourages them to grow, while keeping a broad perspective, and that they will incorporate this in their daily work.

QC Circle Activities

There are 300 active QC circles at EXEDY Corporation and worldwide there are around 1,100 circles. While employees grow through these activities solving work-related problems, we revitalize communication at the workplace. In the course of these activities, employees learn the problem-solving procedure that is the basis of quality, as well as nurture leadership and membership skills and improve field capabilities. In addition, we organize domestic and global QC Circle competitions to stimulate QC activities throughout the company while increasing the sense of unity and raising awareness towards improvement activities in the EXEDY Group.

Elite circles that won domestic and international qualifications get to participate in the yearly Global QC Tournament.
