Promoting Compliance Education

Compliance Training for Employees

Compliance training and awareness among corporate officers and employees is driven primarily by the Group Compliance Department and the Legal Department. In addition to career training and training for employees to be posted overseas, we provide Laws and Compliance Seminars to explain laws and regulations and to introduce case studies.
In fiscal 2018, we added quality compliance and contract observance to our career education courses.
