Development of Global Talent
Advancing global measures to develop human resources
Aiming to recruit and develop personnel who can lead global business operations, the Sumitomo Corporation Group is focusing on promoting and developing locally hired employees at its overseas offices and Group companies.
As part of these efforts, we conduct training programs for locally hired employees at different career levels, including staff engaged in practical operations, managers and executives. Through these training programs, nearly 300 participants each year come from all over the world to the Head Office in Tokyo.
The programs establish a shared sense of the Sumitomo Corporation Group’s corporate DNA and strengthen the sense of unity among employees as members of the Group by reaffirming participants’ understanding of Sumitomo’s business philosophy and the Group’s Management Policies. In addition, participants share information on the Group’s management policies and strategies and improve their skills by attending various lectures.For details of the level-specific training programs, please refer to the “Development Program for Locally Hired Employees.”

Global utilization of human resources
The Sumitomo Corporation Group globally fosters the appropriate assignment of human resources on a consolidated basis, regardless of their nationality and affiliation within the Group. Based on this policy, locally hired employees and members of Group companies are transferred within the Group across countries and Group companies. Moreover, the Group proactively promotes locally hired employees to the heads of bases outside Japan for the appropriate assignment of human resources on a globally consolidated basis.
