Our Efforts Toward Employees

Diversity and Developing Human Resources

Create Opportunities for Diverse Human Resources in Our Workforce

Mitsubishi Estate Group believes that human resources are a very important management asset and recognizes that employee growth is essential to the Group's own continued growth. We believe that securing diverse personnel is an essential element in achieving high-level management of real estate funds, and creating new company values, We are recruiting a wide range of talented personnel by employing skills as well as potential. In addition, in order to maximize the capabilities of each employee, we have created opportunities to communicate with each employee regarding job satisfaction and confirm career plans so that employees enable them to thrive.

Appropriate evaluation

MJIA has introduced a ”Management by Objective (MBO)” for all employees in order to encourage individuals skills/career development. At the beginning of the year, employees set a specific goal through interviews with the personnel evaluator. Interviews are then conducted to provide employeesʼ their feedbacks on progress and evaluation during and at the end of the period.
