HGAP Culture Day: DE&I (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion)
Corporation culture is the soul of a group, laying the foundation and even leading to success.
On September 21st, the DE&I (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion) culture day event was successfully held at HGAP Suzhou. In this event, HGAP people achieved a profound and vivid understanding of these valuable ideas proposed by Hitachi.
The theme of this event was the diversity between generations, and it discussed how age differences can boost the development of a corporation. As the event kicked off, GM Kawabata San and Senior HR & Admin Manager Grace Gong took the stage to share their perspectives on DE&I.
Since its foundation, Hitachi has managed to achieve a perfect integration of DE&I in its corporation mission, value and vision, and has made it an important part of the Group's business strategy. Nowadays, HGAP also carries these ideas and continues to follow it in work.
For a corporation, the team with diversity could be more innovative and creative to handle complex issues. The competition system with equity could bring more opportunities and fulfillment to reduce the staff turnover and enhance the corporation sustainability. And the working environment with inclusion could ensure the staff treated so respectfully and equally that they could keep enough passion and working efficiency.
Afterwards representatives from pre-80s, post-80s and post-90s generations respectively expressed their viewpoints from the perspective of personal experience and corporation development, which greatly boosted the interaction of ideas. Then they were divided into several teams. All teams successfully overcame intergenerational contradictions and worked together to provide effective solutions, which showed enough possibility to create a more comfortable working environment.
In the future, HGAP shall adhere to the ideas of diversity, equity and inclusion in the path of sustainable development.
