Conducting a global employee survey (Engagement Survey)

In 2016, the OMRON Group initiated global employee engagement survey named VOICE, or VG OMRON Interactive Communication with Employees, to provide management with direct employee feedback and lead to actions for solving issues identified by management. Through improvement activities based on the results of these surveys, we aim to create an environment in which employees who provide the support for sustainable business growth, learn and embrace the direction of the Company, while maximizing motivation and opportunities to exercise their talents in contributing to the achievement of Company goals.

During fiscal 2020, we pursued more than 300 actions globally, focusing on the desire to improve operational efficiencies raised by many employees in the previous survey. Based on feedback from employees in our fourth survey (January 2021), we plan to continue actions throughout fiscal 2021 to improve operational efficiencies and pursue the following initiatives to address the performance management issues that have emerged.

1. IT infrastructure
Redesign core IT systems
2. Rules and business processes
Pursue front-line solutions to issues related to operational efficiencies, optimize compensation levels in each country, and review the qualification grading system used in Japan
3. Management capacity
Improve manager feedback skills to improve individual and organizational leadership
