Apr 13, 2022
TOKYO, Japan - April 13, 2022 - ORIX Bank Corporation (“ORIX Bank”) announced today that it has introduced a new human resources system (“this system”) with the aim of improving employee job satisfaction and making it easier to work.
This system has newly created expert positions in addition to traditional management positions in order to promote the "activity of diverse human resources." Employees can choose from four areas of expertise (Sales, Corporate, Customer Service, and IT/Digital) in line with their own preferences. They can then improve their expert skills through internal transfers and experiences related to their area of expertise. In addition, outstanding expert positions have also been newly established for human resources with specific and highly specialized skills.
By allowing employees to choose expert careers that align their preferences in addition to management positions that have been traditionally held by General Manager and Senior Manager, ORIX Bank will further enhance their expertise as well as realize the ideal work styles of each employee.
[Change in Career Structure]
In order to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society, ORIX Bank formulated the Sustainability Policy*1 in June 2021 that applies to all of its business activities and the employees who are involved in them. As part of this policy, ORIX Bank is creating a sustainable working environment for its employees through human resources systems such as work style reforms as well as workplace improvements such as the renovation*2 of its headquarters building.
Through the introduction of this system, ORIX Bank will promote the diverse work styles of its employees and aim to further improve job satisfaction and make it easier to work.
Four areas of expertise for expert positions
For expert positions, employees choose the area in which they wish to develop their expertise between four areas of expertise. In principle, they will develop their careers through transfers limited to their area of expertise.
*Selection of the four areas of expertise is planned to start from fiscal 2024.
