Global Talent Development

Human Resource Development Program

In our Mabuchi Global Management System, which emphasizes the robust interconnections between the bases and leverages diverse human resources, it is crucial to have an education system in place that promotes the development of local talent and facilitates the departments and bases mutual understanding of their respective responsibilities. We implement a job rotation system and conduct a global executive candidate training program to continuously cultivate management talent capable of playing an active role globally, including employees at our overseas bases. In particular, we promote a trainee system to help young employees acquire on-the-job skills. As trainees, they spend six months to one year gaining overseas experience and firsthand insight into the practical operations of our international sites. We also have a system in place enabling employees from our overseas bases to be transferred to the Headquarters as trainees. In addition, we are remodeling our education system with the establishment of the Mabuchi Learning Institute (MLI), which aims to develop an extensive and deep knowledge base across the Mabuchi Group worldwide by allowing employees anywhere in the world to attend classes, including online classes.

From Mexico Mabuchi to the Headquarters

She has been working at the Headquarters as a trainee since March 2023. After being in charge of recruitment tasks in the Human Resources Department, she has been working in the Corporate Planning Department since July 2023.

At Mexico Mabuchi, I am a team leader in the president’s office. As a member of the president’s office, I have to handle a wide range of tasks. To enhance my skills and knowledge, I have been working as a trainee in multiple departments at the Headquarters for one year. During my first few months, I learned about the new graduate recruitment system and gained hands-on experience in its operation in the Human Resources Department. Subsequently, I also took on responsibilities in the Corporate Planning Department. Working alongside my colleagues at the Headquarters, with whom my previous interactions were mainly limited to online communication, I have learned that everyone within the Mabuchi Group is a part of a team. Through this opportunity, I have realized the importance of fostering the bonds within this team. Here in Japan, I would like to work as an ambassador from Mexico to help my colleagues who have business interactions with Mexico Mabuchi to develop familiarity and a positive feeling toward Mexico. I do not think there are many companies in the world that offer opportunities like our trainee program to promote human resources and cultural exchange.
Mabuchi Motor began with the ambitious dream of its founder, which has led to the company’s overseas expansion and the establishment of numerous bases. This environment has provided its employees with opportunities to work all over the world. The essence of the founder’s dream has been maintained over the years, leading to this current trainee program. Through my participation in this program, I am delighted and grateful to be a part of the founder’s dream.

From the Headquarters to Mexico Mabuchi

From February 2022 to March 2023, he worked as a trainee at Mexico Mabuchi, where he was in charge of improving the production process for power window lifter motors.

At Mexico Mabuchi, I was assigned to the task of improving the production process for power window lifter motors as a trainee. At the beginning of my training, I faced many challenges in solving production issues. I asked my senior colleagues, who were also on loan from the Headquarters, to share their knowledge, and I also worked together with local staff members, which allowed me to leverage their expertise to find solutions. As I gained more experience, I deepened my understanding of the production flow, system and equipment structure. This enabled me to independently come up with improvement ideas and suggestions. I then started receiving questions and being asked for advice from junior engineers about specific roles of the equipment as I was in charge of the process that involved complex equipment structures. This gave me a sense of fulfillment as I was able to contribute and provide guidance in their learning process. After the end of my trainee period and since my return to the Headquarters, I have continued to be involved in process design, and I have had more opportunities to travel to overseas bases. The knowledge and insights I gained on-site at Mexico Mabuchi have helped me in my current responsibilities.
