Mitsui Fudosan seeks to become a “real estate solutions partner” that creates new levels of value by embracing a multifaceted approach to changing customer needs and markets. To achieve this aim, it is imperative that employees having sophisticated expertise in business, as well as a broad perspective not limited to any specific field, constitute a community of diversified human resources able to demonstrate their individuality.
For this reason, Mitsui Fudosan is seeking to provide systematic programs that improve various abilities and hire people with diverse backgrounds.
Systematic Programs for Improving Various Skills
In view of skills development based on each employee's individual skills and needs, Mitsui Fudosan has set up systematic and diversified programs. In addition, many opportunities to meet and discuss career shaping and skills development with the Personnel Department and senior employees have been prepared as a system.
Training is divided into those programs organized by the Personnel Department that deal with the knowledge and skills all employees of Mitsui Fudosan should possess, and those programs organized by each department that involve the specialist skills and products specific to that department.
In fiscal 2011, overseas trainee, language and mindset instruction courses for fostering global talent and cross-industrial fellowship type organizational management instruction courses for administrators to foster a managerial perspective were expanded.
The training characteristic of Mitsui Fudosan is reflected in the following training programs involving the sharing of management awareness and corporate culture.
Training in which directors serve as professors to discuss management issues in seminar style with several employees from every age group for information sharing that transcends roles and age groups
Cross Expert Training
Training that helps employees find their own role model by listening to lectures that reflect upon the lives of those who head departments and groups
Furthermore, by establishing interviews for setting tasks or capacity building, individual hearings with employees and several other forums for dialogue, Mitsui Fudosan has designed programs to enable employees to develop their skills with a sense of satisfaction in line with their own preferences and vision.
Employing Human Resources of Various Backgrounds
Business experience seminars

In the recruitment of new graduates, Mitsui Fudosan devises ways to deepen their understanding of the developer business, such as holding “business experience seminars” for students who are considering applying for a position and having the students take part in games in which they plan urban developments.
For recruitment of mid-career professionals who are to engage in a variety of work with a view toward future positions in general management with possible transfers to other locations, rather than restrict applications to those who were in a certain industry in their previous position, Mitsui Fudosan seeks a broad range of human resources capable of thinking outside the box and possessing a wealth of experience. Furthermore, in the recruitment of mid-career professionals who are to engage in specific tasks with a view toward a future management position with no transfers to other locations, Mitsui Fudosan seeks a broad range of human resources capable of proactively engaging in a range of individual tasks required to accomplish goals while working together with relevant parties inside and outside the company.
