Global Employee Engagement Survey
In preparation for implementing our 2025 Long-term Business Plan, we consider Group employee engagement to be extremely important. We, therefore, conducted an online survey in June 2018 to measure individual engagement levels and investigate the underlying factors for all employees of the Mitsui Chemicals Group. This was the first survey to cover all Group employees, and 87% of the employees responded. Their opinions provided us with many suggestions that improved our understanding of the Group-wide HR challenges. The results of the survey have been shared with our management, and we are currently working on an action plan on a Group-wide basis. Characteristics of the Group revealed through this survey include an incredibly strong culture of safety and an emphasis on autonomy and delegation of authority. Two points also raised and expected to help contribute to higher engagement going forward are: dialogue with management and skill development and careers. The results of this survey can be analyzed by the unit of Head Office division, affiliate, or subsidiary. Therefore, leaders and HR division in each organization have worked together to formulate improvement action plans that are suitable for individual departments, and are working on the specific measures to improve the level of engagement. In order to further raise the engagement level in the entire Group, this survey will continue to be conducted every two to three years.
