Human Resource Development and Improvement of Skills


Our basic approach to human resource management is to treat each employee as an individual and create a stage on which they can hone their professional knowledge and abilities, increase their ability to create added-value, and transform team performance through the integration of diverse values and skills.

The Company aims to be a business and lifestyle solutions partner. To do so, Mitsui Fudosan is targeting the development of a diverse group of employees, who are able to make full use of their individual attributes, with both specialized and advanced business knowledge, and a broader perspective. To achieve this goal, we have adopted a basic policy on personnel development that broadens the capabilities of each individual by combining four opportunities for personnel development in accordance with the person's career.

Management System

(1) OJT

We provide On the Job Training through work on-site as the basis for personnel development Through specific jobs in the workplace and communication between employees, we develop the capabilities necessary for job performance in a planned, continuous fashion.

(2) Yearly interviews between employees and the Personnel Department

As part of our system, we provide employees with numerous opportunities to consult/discuss their career and capability development with the Personnel Department or their department manager so we can offer support that suits each employee's vision for their future. That includes an interview once a year with the Personnel Department that not only aims to ascertain information on their problems, development environment, and worries, but by grasping the individual's work situation and that of those around the individual, the interviews also act as a fair means of evaluation.

(3) Job rotation

We develop professionals with a wide range of specialties. We conduct job rotation every few years. Our aim is to develop employees and an organization which can adapt to an ever-changing environment, and this is achieved by further deepening the experience and knowledge of each employee through work experience in multiple areas, while bolstering expertise through focus on work the employee is in charge of.

(4) Training programs

Between level-based training and training that can be selected to cater to individual employees' personal roles, skills, or capabilities, and other measures, we have more than 100 diverse programs underway. So that everyone can voluntarily work to improve their own abilities, we are preparing application-based training that incorporates interaction between employees from different industries.

Examples of Training Programs

The Company has put in place specific training programs designed to improve a diverse range of employee capabilities. These include mandatory training programs aimed at all employee levels, from new employees to members of management; systematic and diverse elective training programs that encourage individual employees to learn autonomously; studying abroad; and global training.

Examples of Training Programs

In addition to the above, to support career visions based on employees' diverse values, we are putting in place a number of systems, including a personal statement system related to changing official duties or wishes to change department, and a system to allow contract employees to become regular employees.

Going further, to deepen understanding of our businesses, one of our initiatives aimed at expanding experience in business domains separate from our existing businesses, we are looking to establish systems that include a business proposal system, a side-job system to help create innovation and make a social contribution, a leave system whereby employees can take time to study at graduate school, and a graduate school tuition fee subsidy system. In these ways, we will promote the fostering of issue-resolution capabilities and the ability to create added-value in this very changeable business environment.


The Company puts on career events and provides internships for students as an opportunity to improve the quality of their career options. We make a public appeal to undergraduate and graduate students, and accept more than 400 students annually.

Development of Global Personnel

Rapid growth in our overseas business is a key element of our management strategy, and the market in Japan is becoming more and more globalized We are therefore working to enhance overseas assignment training and language programs to develop human resources who can act on the global stage.

Training programs


  • Assignment for International Language Training (Global Training for Young and Mid-Level Employees): To build language skills, the ability to cope with different cultures, and international connections, we assign young employees (as a rule, all employees) and mid-level employees to overseas training for periods of 2-4 weeks.
  • Overseas Trainee System: We have an international trainee system for internships and language training in Europe, the USA, and Asia, for periods of 6 months to one year. Different employees are assigned to this program every year.
  • Overseas MBA System: We have put in place an MBA system, provided by overseas graduate schools, to develop the overseas management personnel of the future and help them make personal connections.
  • Compliance Training: Compliance training covering issues such as preventing corruption is held regularly at international locations for employees of local subsidiaries and local staff.
