In the corporate activities of KYOCERA Document Solutions, we share a common management rationale as a member of the Kyocera Group, and act in accord with the Kyocera Philosophy which is the foundation of our management.
The Kyocera Philosophy is a corporate philosophy that is rooted in the real-life experiences and empirical rules of the founder of the Kyocera Group, Kazuo Inamori, and emphasizes the significance of commitment to fair management and operation, while upholding "doing what is right as a human being" as the principal criterion for business decisions.
We distribute the Kyocera Philosophy Handbook and the Kyocera Employee Action Guidelines to all employees, to encourage them to learn the Kyocera Philosophy and act responsibly as members of the company. In this way, we strive to ensure that employees learn and practice the Kyocera Philosophy by utilizing these guidelines whenever they have an opportunity.
In the execution of business activities, we employ the two principal management tools:the Amoeba Management System (a small group-based management method) and Kyocera Accountancy (Kyocera Group's accounting principles), both of which have been developed to realize the Kyocera Philosophy.
The Management Rationale of the Kyocera Group is "To provide opportunities for the material and intellectual growth of all our employees, and through our joint efforts, contribute to the advancement of society and humankind." The "material and intellectual growth" that we aim for includes the pursuit of economic stability, and entails the pursuit of mental riches as a human being, in the shape of life with purpose and job satisfaction through self-fulfillment in the workplace.
Additionally, the steady refinement of our technology allows us to provide the world with wonderful products one after another, and thereby contribute to the advancement of science and technology. At the same time, by steadily raising profits as a company we aim to contribute to the improvement of common welfare, through increased tax payments and other means. The guidelines for action in pursuing the Management Rationale are set out in the Kyocera Philosophy. As a state of mind for leading wonderful lives, we are striving day by day to practice the Kyocera Philosophy.
