Brother has been actively working to develop personnel who can utilize their talents and abilities to the fullest, while respecting their diversity in respective regions. Various efforts that have been made in respective regions include Japanese education programs and global personnel development programs by exchanging personnel between Brother Industries, Ltd. and group companies.
Since 2010, the Leadership Academy has been co-organized by Brother sales facilities in the ASEAN region to develop personnel in this region. Lectures and workshops are held for managers who serve as leaders at respective sales facilities to help them develop coaching and other skills. In 2013, sixty managers participated in the annual Leaders' Summit from across the ASEAN region. The Leaders' Summit provides an ideal opportunity to learn from each other through cross-cultural communication by sharing knowledge and expertise required of leaders responsible for advancing their businesses. These ongoing activities have helped managers clarify their objectives, making a difference in daily operations such as increased commitment to work and motivation to take up challenges.
Brother will continue to promote activities for training managers based on the Brother Group Global Charter, in the hope that improvement in personal talents and abilities will lead to better corporate management.
