Approach to Human Resource Development

mixi Group believes that its employees are an important asset, and strengthening the organization by developing excellent human resources will lead to sustainable growth for the company. The Group has seen a rapid increase in the number of mid-career recruits in recent years due to the expansion of our business areas. We are strengthening our human resource development systems to help develop new recruits' skills in a timely manner by providing not only basic training for business operations, but also systematic training, including training by job level and training with external instructors.

One-on-Ones

Since around 2007, mixi has held one-on-one meetings with superiors and colleagues, and they have become a distinctive culture within the company. The one-on-one meetings with superiors are used as an opportunity to build a relationship of trust through discussing work progress, consultation, review and feedback, and discussion of anything the employee would like to try.

We also hold one-on-one study sessions with management-level employees to improve the quality and productivity of one-on-ones.
To gain new insights and ideas, we also conduct one-on-one sharing sessions to share successful experiences, challenges and initiatives.
