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 variety of online training courses. In the FY2020, the formula of the calculation has been reviewed as only video contents are included for e-learning. In addition, the number of trainee is decreased since some group training has been shifted to e-learning and the number of people who had taken the course is not included.
※2
Excludes directors, executive officers, Audit & Supervisory Board members and employees who retired as of March 31
