In Japan, Sony Corporation offers more than 300 employee training programs - including general training, e-learning, and on-site training - tailored to specific objectives. Mandatory multilevel job-specific training helps participants acquire crucial skills in a systematic effort to foster human resources with the skills to drive future business growth. Sony is also expanding its menu of elective training options, consisting of lectures, correspondence courses and courses provided by affiliated training agencies, which are aimed at enhancing job performance, as well as providing support for self-learning and personal development. For fiscal year 2014, we have been working on training program reviews as well as insourcing the instructors by employees, as to improve the efficiency and quality of each training. These efforts led to reduce the cost of human resource development, approximately 180,000 yen for each Sony employee.
