I would like to express my deepest sympathies to all those afflicted by the novel coronavirus and to those in difficult circumstances. I pray all make a swift recovery and that these difficulties can be overcome quickly.
While the spread of COVID-19 has demonstrated the power of technology to connect us, it has also provided us with an opportunity to reexamine the importance of human interaction and face-to-face communication. As people’s values shift and the state of business undergoes drastic change, Sojitz will utilize its diverse functions, know-how, and human networks in order to continue to provide a multiplicity of value to society.
Representative Director, President and CEO
Under the emergency conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Human Resources Dept. and General Affairs & IT Operation Dept. have played a central role in creating a safe and smoothly-functioning work environment. An in-depth conversation was held with members of both departments to hear about new working styles and how each department responded and collaborated under the state of emergency.
