Fujitsu today announced the results of its 2024 annual negotiations on the improvement of labor conditions. As one main outcomes of its negotiations with the Fujitsu Worker’s Union, Fujitsu will raise monthly wages of leader class employees in research and development (1) (employees around the age of 30) from the current level of 400,700 Yen to 413,700 Yen, which corresponds to an increase of monthly income of 13,000 Yen (2), in addition to improved wage levels for other job groups.

This means that leader class employees in research and development can now potentially reach annual wages of around 10 million yen after the current review of compensation levels.

Maximising employee performance to improve sustainale corporate value

To realize its purpose, “to make the world more sustainable by building trust in society through innovation,” Fujitsu in 2022 introduced a job-based human resources management system for all employees in Japan.

To achieve sustainable improvement of corporate value, Fujitsu is further focusing on the importance of maximizing the performance of each employee, and is actively investing in its talent development to proactively address and support the growth of its people at all stages of their professional careers.

Fujitsu’s approach to compensation

Based on the concept of its job-based human resource management system, Fujitsu is setting compensation levels based on the wider human resource market, and determines individual compensation according to the level of employees’ responsibilities.
Based on benchmark results from global companies, Fujitsu in April 2023 revised the compensation system for employees at all job levels in Japan and raised monthly wages by an average of 10% and a maximum of 29%.

Considering fluctuations in the human resources market that have accompanied the growing momentum for wage increases in Japan, Fujitsu will raise wages to further invest in human capital from the perspective of maintaining competitiveness.
