Basic Policy on Human Resources

Basic Policy

Mitsubishi Electric actively recruits employees to maintain a proper personnel structure over the medium to long term, and to achieve further global expansion of its growth areas, which are centered on power systems, transportation systems, building systems, FA systems, automotive equipment, space systems, power devices, and air-conditioning systems.

Affiliated companies in Japan also implement plans for continuous recruitment of employees from the standpoint of strengthening business, technological capabilities, marketing capacities, and manufacturing power.

All recruitment activities are implemented in compliance with the guidelines on recruitment and selection of undergraduate and postgraduate students who are scheduled to graduate or complete their master's courses, outlined by the Japan Business Federation (Keidanren).
