Sony’s original Founding Prospectus set forth a management commitment to enable each individual to fully exercise his or her abilities and skills. Sony co-founder Akio Morita once said to the company’s newest recruits, “If you ever find yourself regretting that you joined Sony, quit right away. You only live once. Once you truly commit to working at Sony, there is a mutual responsibility. I hope you won’t arrive at the end of your life with regrets about having worked at Sony.”
Under these founding principles, Sony places great importance on employee engagement to realize continual growth for employees and as a corporation. Sony seeks to improve working conditions and keep employees motivated through diverse initiatives to realize work-life balance, foster good internal communication, and create energized and appealing workplaces.
