■ Toppan University
The Human Resource Development Center in the head office Personnel & Labor Relations Division coordinates with persons in charge of human asset development at departments throughout the Company to institute training programs. These programs to develop and nurture human assets are organized systematically around Toppan University, a simple platform that strives to foster leaders while supporting the skill improvement and career enhancement of employees through basic and special programs, a leadership program, and a personal empowerment program.
Toppan has established training centers in Kawaguchi, Saitama Prefecture and Yugawara, Kanagawa Prefecture to nurture human assets. These centers are venues for various training sessions and interaction between Toppan personnel.
In April of 2017 Toppan launched the Human Resource Development Laboratory as a research base to develop innovative personnel training programs that apply brain research, neuroscience, analysis of physical condition, and various technologies. This laboratory will be used as a platform to design and implement programs that foster human assets with excellent communication skills and heightened sensibilities. The Company plans to improve individual productivity and facilitate the individual development of the Toppan workforce via this platform.
The Company also operates a training management system that offers training tools and information on various learning courses. Employees can review records of their own training online via the e-learning programs. Toppan has also surveyed every employee with a questionnaire on the Company’s human asset development programs to reflect the results in future development plans.
