Trainings New employees will take about one week of orientation training after joining the company to gain an understanding of responsibilities and obligations as an adult and a corporate citizen, and learn about the YKK Group principles.
After that, they will receive additional instruction where they are assigned.
This is the approach the YKK Group takes to ensure that employees learn their jobs effectively “without fearing failure.”
Furthermore, employees take job-specific or elective training programs within the group or through outside seminars and professional educational institutes to learn basic technologies and knowledge required for their jobs.
