Graduate Evaluation Systems
We evaluate and remunerate employees so that those who worked hard are motivated to take on the next challenge.
Each employee’s field and grade are determined based on their mission and work style, rather than age, gender, and other personal attributes. A mission statement drawn up for each job category indicates the direction in which the employee should strive, by defining the mission and capabilities the company expects the employee to fulfill and demonstrate.
Employees are evaluated from two angles. One is to assess their contributions to the business results and organization. The other is to appraise their core capabilities and value relative to the capabilities needed to fulfill their missions and to the attitude and action required of SoftBank personnel. Evaluation indicators are designed to gauge the both factors.
The remuneration system is made up of the mission grade system and the assessment system that interlink. Each employee’s bonus varies depending on their contribution assessment results, as the system is designed to provide remuneration commensurate with their individual contributions to the organization.
Recognizing the performance of sections and teams, the smallest frontline sales units, this program reflects our belief that individual teams voluntarily taking the profit-improvement initiative amounts to enormous power to drive company-wide performance and growth. Based on the results tallied up on a quarterly basis, the top-ranking teams are awarded team bonuses.
