January 2007: Post-Flattening Personnel Organization Reforms

Strengthening of Human Resources Development and Communication

In light of the major changes taking place in the management environment starting in 2000 including rapid global business expansion, diversification of human resources, and changes in working styles, TMC set 2001 as 'year one for personnel training' and conducted a companywide review of training. In 2006, post-flattening personnel organizations were reorganized, basic workplace systems were reviewed, the direction of personal training was investigated, and personnel systems were changed.

One workplace system was the formation of small groups centered on group managers to create strong ties between veteran and less experienced employees in an effort to reestablish a workplace environment where everyone can both teach and be taught.
