Personnel Appraisal System That Emphasizes Process
The Kewpie Group has introduced an appraisal system that achieves both the execution of the Group’s management strategies and the further growth of the individual. While emphasizing the value of daily process, we will reinforce the following three points.
1.Encourage the individual to take on challenges and achieve results
2.Expand OJT to realize a heightened sense of growth
3.Gain a sense of the importance of the corporate philosophy of the Kewpie Group and put them into practice
Putting into practice actions that will lead to results that are true to the Kewpie Group through Group cooperation, with this appraisal system that emphasizes process as the pivotal axis, will lead to the growth of each individual employee.
At Kewpie, as a way to create a culture of active challenge and learning and to assist our employees in their career development, we have established a variety of award schemes, including the Qualifications Award. We periodically review the types of qualifications and accreditations that are eligible for the Qualifications Award.

Kewpie Start Up Program
In the Kewpie Group, in addition to encouraging individual growth by enhancing our specialist training and self-development programs, we support our employees in realizing their own careers with the Career Self-Declaration Scheme. In this scheme, employees share with the company and their supervisors their hopes and dreams for their work and the path they hope to follow. We have also extended our human resources development programs, such as the Corporate Philosophy Training, to all employees of the Group, including our part-time and temporary employees.

Parental Leave Taken
Figures are for Kewpie Corporation.
*For men, parental leave taken is counted not in the year it was taken but in the year the child was born.
*Rate of leave taken: Ratio of employees who took parental leave compared to the number of employees who had a child in the year in question.
*Employees whose spouse gave birth in 2015 or 2016 but who took parental leave in 2017 have been added to the year in which the child was born, so the figures differ from last year’s report.
