Employee Development

Capable and motivated employees are essential to the success of our business. Our human resources policy is designed to help us identify promising employees, facilitate their professional growth, and earn their long-term loyalty.

With employee performance assessments, leadership development measures, and systematic succession planning, we aim to:

  • fill key positions internally with top-class candidates worldwide,
  • develop top talent in a targeted way, and
  • secure the long-term loyalty of employees through individual development planning.
