In order to create a corporate environment in which employees can enjoy their work, Mazda promotes personal development revolving around the principles of the Mazda Way.
Mazda recognizes that people are its most important resource and aims to be a company staffed by people who enjoy their work. To this end, the Company promotes human resource training based on the Mazda Way principles that are shared throughout the entire Mazda Group worldwide. Also, the Company has actively implemented a wide variety of measures and initiatives including the Tobiuo (Flying Fish) Human Resources System, which is established to act as a platform for individuals to realize their potential for growth and success.
In FY March 2009, Mazda summarized seven basic principles and values handed down within the Company over time and defined these as the Mazda Way.
In FY March 2012, the information sharing of approaches and past experiences that senior executives considered important through in-house newsletters, which began in FY March 2011, was continued, in order to raise awareness of the Mazda Way in each Mazda employee and promote related changes in behavior.
Mazda continues to promote measures to ensure that the Mazda Way can easily be put into practice by employees.
Mazda engages in regular communication with Group companies worldwide, and the each Group company is working together to create further opportunities for interaction among personnel and cultivate a climate based on a shared point of view.
