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 addition, for March in the 2020, the formula of the calculation of e-learning has been clarified as only e-learning with video is counted. About 30% out of all e-learning contents is e-learning with video. The number of trainee is decreased in FY2020 since some group training has been shifted to e-learning and the number of people who had taken the course is not included.

Employees cover Sojitz (non-consolidated) employees, excludes directors, executive officers, Audit & Supervisory Board members and employees who retired as of March 31.
