Human Resource Development and Career Design


Long-term Goal to be achieved by FY2030

The Fujitsu Group aims to enrich and continuously improve our positive health culture where our employees can work to their full potential, both in mind and body. We value the importance of our people, and will strive to enable them to succeed in their own personal development and growth.


Fujitsu emphasizes the following four themes in the development of human resources. While collaborating with each business group and the Human Resources unit, the Human Resources Development Unit works to strengthen our Group from both perspectives of cultivating human resources and strengthening organizational capability.

  • Cultivate Business Leaders: Cultivation of core human resources and global human resources from a long-term perspective
  • Cultivate by Position/Role: From new employees to executives, enable each person to acquire the knowledge and skills required for their position and role
  • Cultivate Professionals: Cultivate professionals in each specialized field and enable them to acquire knowledge of advanced technology and the latest skills
  • Support the Growth of Diverse Individuals: Support the performance of diverse individuals through measures such as promoting diversity and inclusion, supporting career development, and providing education on human rights

Fujitsu’s Human Resource Cultivation Concept

Promotion Framework and Periodic Review

Fujitsu has established a Group-Wide Talent Strategy Committee comprised mainly of executives at the management level and above. The committee meets twice a year to discuss the Fujitsu vision and human resources strategy for achieving our business strategy. Under the policies of this Group-Wide Talent Strategy Committee, the Human Resources Development Planning Office reviews priority measures and frameworks for implementing measures, and designs education initiatives shared by the entire company. Furthermore, each unit has a Human Resources Development Division which oversees education for the unit, position-specific training, and specialized training. The division conducts human resource training across the entire division for each position, including for domestic group companies.

Education is mainly conducted by the group company Fujitsu Learning Media Limited, which specializes in education.

Human Resource Educational System

For all employees at Fujitsu and domestic Group companies , we provide shared education and specialized education. The latter improves the specialization of various departments and job types. We also provide various forms of self-development support to assist employees engaged in personal study.

Our rank-specific training programs are positioned as an important part of shared education. In addition to inputting necessary items across all ranks, the training includes shared items which require improvement across all ranks; for example, leadership, financial accounting, and facilitation.

Units implementing human resources development constantly work to improve training for individuals by utilizing various information such as training questionnaires and the latest educational methods.
