Ajinomoto to groom management candidates globally

TOKYO -- Ajinomoto will introduce a program to select and train the most promising next-generation management candidates from affiliates both in Japan and abroad, creating a system that promotes the best employee talent worldwide.

     Starting next year, a committee of managers will select 200 promising employees annually from lists prepared by regional headquarters in North America, South America and elsewhere, in addition to Japan.

     The individuals will be groomed as candidates for around 120 important posts, including executives or business division managers at Ajinomoto itself or at subsidiaries and foreign affiliates.

     Up to now, the global food products and pharmaceuticals company has sometimes failed to recognize talented individuals overseas. By making personnel information more visible on a worldwide scale, Ajinomoto aims to quickly promote excellent performers and get them assigned to the right place.
