The SCREEN Group has formulated basic policies in 7 fields of human resource management (see diagram below). These policies are in line with our corporate philosophy of “Sharing the Future,” “Human Resource Development,” and “The Pursuit of Technology,” and founded on the pillars of our “CSR Charter / Code of Conduct” and “SCREEN Group Code of Management”. Under these policies, we strive to create an environment where a diversity of employees can maximize their talents and enjoy rewarding work.

Personnel Development and Use of Human Resources

The SCREEN Group formulated its Basic Philosophy on developing human resources over the medium to long term. The Basic Philosophy states the concept and basic policies of personnel development and the definition of ideal personnel. By implementing the programs and measures that will bring the basic policies to fruition, we aim to promote the growth of all employees - the foundation for improving corporate value - and foster the next generation of management personnel.

Concept of Personnel Development

Concept of Personnel Development is to show objectives for personnel development and relationship between “Company” and “Employee” based on the code.

Ideal Personnel

Personnel Development Basic Policies

We have declared five basic policies, and are deploying systems and measures for their achievement.


The SCREEN BUSINESS SCHOOL offers a wide range of educational and training programs so that employees can take the initiative and better themselves in all stages of their career. In fiscal 2018, we launched new programs such as business fundamentals, female employee skill development, and a young business leader training course. A total of 970 employees took part in these and existing programs.

Labor-Management Relationship

Meetings are held twice a month for labor-management negotiations. Labor-management conferences are held when necessary to discuss a range of issues related to the labor environment. Under our Work-Style Reform Project, union members take part in studying and implementing systems and measures related to things like reducing total working hours and getting employees to take paid leave. As of March 2018, 61% of the employees at SCREEN Holdings and its business operating and functional support companies have the right to collective bargaining. 

Evaluation and Treatment

The SCREEN Group performs fair and acceptable evaluations based on each employee’s role and job performance. We also fairly reward employees for the contributions they have made based on corporate and sectional performance. We also hold periodic training for evaluators so that they can gain a deeper understanding of the goals-based management and evaluation methods that form the basis of their evaluations and treatment of employees.

Building a Friendly Work Environment

Work-Style Reform
In April 2017, SCREEN launched its Work-Style Reform Project. The systems, mechanisms, and IT related to work-style reform went into full effect in April 2018. Work-style reform is a crucial element to realizing our mission under Challenge 2019 “Growth and qualitative improvement of the Group itself” and to further boosting the competitiveness of the SCREEN Group. To maximize the productivity and creativity of its human resources, the SCREEN Group is building a pleasant workplace where employees can perform their jobs in a healthy, safe, and stress-free environment.
