Support Systems

System Introduction

CDA (Career Design Advisory) System

At TechnoPro Group Holdings, through the introduction of our CDA system, we aim to merge our ‘Engineer & Researcher Career Plan’ and ‘Business Expansion’ at a high level. Through this we aim to foster a culture where each and every technical employee has a deep understanding of the company’s business plan and conducts business with a clear sense of purpose.

What is “CDA System” ?

The CDA system involves full-time employees with rich engineering experience, as well as senior engineers, supporting employee career advancement. TechnoPro aims to promote each engineer’s growth by conducting interviews and other interactions to clarify future goals, developing plans to acquire the necessary skills and experience, and deliver education, training and advice on daily work.

Personnel supporting Group technical employees under the CDA system assume the significant responsibility of providing milestones for employees career plans. Accordingly, such personnel receive introductory training by a professional instructor prior to assignment, and are approved for assignment based on determination of aptitude related to ethical conduct, fair and objective decision-making, an understanding of their own limitations, protection of personal information, etc.

After appointment, these individuals carry out the work in accordance a code of conduct consisting of eight articles. These individuals also undergo follow-up training to ensure their knowledge and skills are up-to-date.

Support systems

  • Distance learning support system
  • Technical book purchase support system
  • Qualification acquisition testing support system

Suggestion Box

The Company’s suggestion box stems from the idea that employee ideas are a valuable corporate resource. This system is in place to solicit opinions and ideas on any topic from employees at any time.

Consultation Systems

Employees receive support from qualified consultants to ensure maximum individual performance

The TechnoPro Group has established a consultation desk for issues confronting employees, allowing employees to devote themselves to their work and maximize their performance.

This consultation is provided by qualified personnel who have a wealth of specialized knowledge and experience. We also have a support system in place to resolve problems and reduce stress before they become major issues.

Having a full lineup of consultants familiar with technical industries and issues faced by engineers.

Dispatching counselors familiar with technical industries and the business of our group (dispatching/contracting/outsourcing, etc.) means we are able to respond smoothly to issues unique to our business. These can include being unable to communicate clearly with staff in charge at the assigned destination, personal relationships within the project team, and differences in policies between dispatcher and dispatched staff.

  • Mental Health Counselling

    TechnoPro provides professional counselling via a subcontracted EAP (Employee Assistance Program) company. In addition to mental health, counselling on the following is also available:

    • Work related matters: Human relations at work, future career path, etc.
    • Family life: Childcare, nursing care, marital relationships, parent-child relationships, child problems, etc.
    • Social life: Living environment, cross-cultural support, etc.
    • Life events: Sickness, marriage, divorce, etc.
  • Harassment Counselling

    We have access to qualified consultants including harassment prevention consultants, senior industry counselors, & psychological counselors. We accept consultations about various forms of harassment including:

    • Power harassment
    • Sexual harassment
    • Harassment related to pregnancy, childbirth, childcare leave, nursing care leave, etc.

Fostering an approachable organizational culture

It takes courage for a troubled employee to seek counselling and, in some cases, they may not be aware of needing help. Techno-Pro Group conducts mental health self-care awareness (for employees) and training in line care (for supervisors) to promote the importance of ‘recognizing symptoms early’. The company strives to create an atmosphere in which people feel comfortable to accept counselling.

Internal club / society & support system

For the purpose of stimulating communication and interaction among employees, as well as addressing a lack of exercise and promoting mental refreshment, we assist by contributing a portion of activity expenses for internal clubs or societies which have become a company-certified organization and attracted a certain number of employees to attend.

Unions

The TechnoPro Group has shop-based labor union, ‘UA Zensen (The Japanese Federation of Textile, Chemical, Food, Commercial, Service and General Workers’ Unions) Human Resource Service General Union (JSGU)’. Throughout the year, labor and management share information on business performance and hold discussions based primarily on solving HR related issues. Going forward, as well as continuing to maintain cooperation for sound labor management through close communication, we strive to create an appropriate business management environment and a rewarding workplace.
