We aim to develop human resources who will contribute to the realization of our management philosophy and the further development of our business by providing appropriate education. In particular, we are focusing on "Philosophy Education" to properly understand the essence, content, and values of Kyocera Philosophy, which is the foundation of our management, and to encourage its implementation.
In order for the Kyocera Philosophy to spread to each employee, gain insight, and embody the philosophy, we believe it is important to provide opportunities to repeatedly learn the Kyocera Philosophy. We have continued our Philosophy education every year. In FY2021, we conducted company-wide Philosophy education for 559 employees in charge. At each workplace, Philosophy is promoted through reading the Philosophy Handbook and learning through the Inamori Digital Library *. Many employees submit their own Philosophy papers for the annual Philosophy papers. In addition, GM(General Manager) seminars and seminars for managers of management departments are held regularly as management education based on Philosophy with the aim of achieving sound and profitable management for senior management employees of affiliated companies. In addition, as part of our efforts across the Kyocera Group, we have sent selected senior employees yearly to a global philosophy seminars held in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Oceania, and China. These seminars provide an opportunity to deepen the understanding of the Kyocera Philosophy by receiving direct training from Kyocera's top management and by raising mutual awareness with many employees of affiliated companies within the Group.

As management education, we provide training by level for those promoted based on the functional qualification system and training by role for new managers of the organization. The training programs are designed to enhance the interpersonal skills, influence, organizational vitality, and performance management skills required of mid-level employees and middle management. The role-specific training consists of two stages: one is to learn practical knowledge based on examples of personnel evaluation and labor management along with leadership knowledge, and the other is to further improve management skills by improving communication skills based on coaching skills.
Technology and skills education
In cooperation with distance learning institutions, we have provided approximately 230 opportunities for our employees to take courses in order to cultivate their professional abilities, on-the-job capabilities, and operational performance. Many of our employees have participated in these courses each year.
In our company, where overseas sales account for about 90% of our sales, the development of global human resources is an essential task, and we are focusing on English education as the basis for this. In addition to raising the level of distance learning through e-learning and smartphone applications, we are also offering online English conversation training, organized into classes by TOEIC score, especially for employees who need English for work. In addition, for employees who have decided to be assigned overseas, we provide pre-assignment training so that they can live and work smoothly at their new location.
