The KOMATSU Way and Human Resource Development

The development of global human resources is an ongoing theme for the Komatsu Group. In addition to disseminating education in the KOMATSU Way so that it can be shared by employees worldwide, the company has set up a system geared toward training professionals in various fields.

Revision of the KOMATSU Way

We distributed the second edition of the KOMATSU Way in November 2011 and held briefings for managers at our plants and subsidiaries in Japan to explain the revised content.

Our overseas subsidiaries have been translating the second edition of the KOMATSU Way into the languages of their locations, and the translations for major subsidiaries were completed before March 2013.

Human Resource Development and Training Structure

Komatsu strives for sustainable growth of both the company and employees through human resource development. Our policy is that "each employee should set high goals and be self-reliant and self-motivated in acquiring knowledge and skills" and that "the company should support employee career development through the implementation of necessary education for both the company and employees in a focused manner."

While fulfilling the education of professionals in a variety of fields, the company also supports the acquisition of knowledge and skills at every level at the company. Regular explanatory sessions and discussions are convened at Group companies to disseminate the KOMATSU Way and incorporate it into human resource development around the world at each level of the company hierarchy, as well as to allow this knowledge to be handed down to younger generations.
