Using Fully-Fledged Career Development Systems

KIOXIA Group supports the career development of each employee in an effort to maximize his or her current and future job performance. The Career Design System, for example, provides each employee with an annual opportunity to discuss and share their views on their own long-term career development as well as on mid-term skill acquisition goals, improvement of these, and ways to showcase such skills with their superiors. The Performance Management System gives each employee a semi-annual opportunity to review and discuss with their superiors their job performance over the previous six months as well as their job objectives for the following six months.

Employee Engagement Survey

KIOXIA Group regularly conducts an Employee Engagement Survey for the purpose of soliciting the opinions of employees. By means of this survey, we periodically monitor the level of employee awareness of various measures and how far these have propagated into the organization. Where issues are identified, we seek to resolve them, leveraging the results of the survey to improve the corporate culture.

In FY2018, we conducted an anonymous survey targeting about 10,000 employees, and received responses from approximately 93% of them.
