Sony Global Solutions, Inc., runs the "MUSHA" program as a one-year transfer assignment for young employees in the information systems field. Participants work at sales subsidiaries in emerging economies, which are positioned as particularly important within Sony's sales and marketing strategy. In fiscal year 2013, a total of three employees took part, undertaking assignments in Indonesia (Jakarta), Russia (Moscow) and India (Delhi), respectively. The participants worked as local staff, receiving supervision from local managers while contributing to sales and marketing business operations. Through this program, Sony aims to not only nurture IT solutions capabilities but also cultivate human resources capable of understanding the operations of sales subsidiaries, and thereby support the realization of Sony's business strategy.
