SMC SDGs TARGET 02

Human resource development and dissemination of automatic control technology knowledge to create a foundation for innovative product development

Encourage the growth of every individual

in support of a sustainable future.

We will convey the joy of learning through educational activities,

incorporating the value of automatic control technology

with low environmental impacts, in order to motivate children

around the world to take the future into their hands.

Furthermore, we will meet face-to-face with each individual employee

and thoroughly implement human resource development,

incorporate fair and impartial employee appraisal standards,

and introduce a commendation system in order to further

develop professionals.

We will also support the growth of those assisting in the development

of automatic control technologies to support a sustainable future.
