Respect for the Individual
Education and Training
Alps Electric provides employees with education and training programs in order to assist in developing individuality and potential. In addition to training that is specific to task, position and echelon (new recruits, middle management, and executives), we also provide partial rebates for correspondence courses and other incentives for individuals to develop skills of their choice.
IAP Japanese Language Training
Alps Electric provides Japanese lessons of many sorts to foreign employees who are taking part in the International Associates Program (IAP). The company’s Headquarters leads a program where IAP participants receive Japanese language classes for the first five weeks after arriving in Japan and for another two weeks in May and September the year after arrival, totaling three standard group courses. IAP participants may also be provided with correspondence courses and additional language training while working within their respective departments. The program has proven to be a great success in the Japanese Language Proficiency Test.
Career Development Seminars
Each employee must remember the importance of building a lifelong career, as a focused employee is an enthusiastic employee. From fiscal 2004, biannual career development seminars geared towards employees in their early 30s have been held by Alps Electric.
The seminars encourage employees to re-examine at and plan the directions their careers are taking. Better grips on individual careers are made through lectures, drills, and discussions. We also provide career counseling for individuals, and draw upon past candidates of the program for career models.
The feedback from participants is very positive, and consecutive seminars are proving to be very popular. Alps is now arranging for seminars designed to serve a wider range of age groups.
