Strengthening Governance Through Integrated Group Management
The Cornerstone of Governance
The cornerstone of the Company’s governance lies in "promotion of diversity" and "spreading our core identity".
Promotion of Diversity
The Company takes its excellent, diverse talent acquired through overseas M&A and appoints them in Co-Heads, and leaders of global committees and specialized areas. In other words, it deploys its global expertise horizontally, or incorporates them into the strategies and policies of the entire Group, thus contributing to Group management. The Company believes that this enables the strategy or the policies of the Group to be stronger and more flexible to change.
Spreading Our Core Identity
As diversity increases, it becomes more important to have a core identity that unites diverse people as a team. We acquired companies whose cultures matched our own with our desire to make the world a better place through our business, but to further spread the Group’s common culture of "To Be a Good Company," we have been implementing a variety of initiatives around the world, such as the "Majikirakai," a group that talks about serious matters very casually.
Function-Based Chief Officer System, Committees, etc.
Through the function-based chief officer system and committees, etc., the Company utilizes its global expertise and knowledge to solve the Group management issues. In addition, the Company is also promoting initiatives to spread our Group culture, led by the Group CCO. These efforts have resulted in Group synergies that contribute approximately ¥35 billion in annual profits.
