Training refers to employee training, including self-development training, conducted by the Human Resources Department, and e-learning, ISO 14001 environmental standards and CSR training programs provided by other departments. Sections of the e-learning data apply only to October 2018 to March 2019 period due to our transition to a new system during the FY2018. The dramatic rise in the number training participants is a result of our new e-learning program, which offers a wider menu of online training courses.
