Diverse talent


The Ajinomoto Group believes that employee engagement, along with market capitalization and corporate brand value (customer value), is an important element in enhancing corporate value.
We intend to accelerate ASV as one's own initiative among employees, investing more in fostering human resources who feel highly engaged in their work and take an active role in contributing to the realization of our vision. In this way, we will transform into a highly productive, issue-solving organization with an ever-growing capacity to offer proposals, to execute our business, and to foster innovation. The Group will search for greater diversity and inclusion in human resources to accelerate innovation. We will also leverage digital technologies to create work styles that improve our ability to respond to environmental changes.
