At BANDAI, the theme for human resources development is “autonomy and independence”. For new employees, we implement programs designed to develop new employees become individuals who can think, learn and take action on their own. Meanwhile, for mid-career employees, we implement programs that encourage them to look back on themselves and create awareness, and help guide employees to solving issues they face. We implement a broad range of education and training programs to accommodate diverse needs. For example, we provide the “BANDAI NAMCO Adventure Program” for employees hired after graduation to recognize the importance of team-building.
