As President & CEO, I have set out three goals geared toward realizing our Vision 2026 and our corporate philosophy. The first goal is to “Change & Go Beyond.” It goes without saying that if we only passively pursue the changes and advances required to do business today, we will fall behind the times, and our competitiveness in the market will deteriorate. Instead, we need to look beyond the present and focus on achieving net-zero carbon emissions, using renewable energy, aligning business policy with changes in local demographics such as aging populations, shifting to electric vehicles, implementing digital transformation, and effectively utilizing remote work and AI.
COVID-19 has changed the way we live and work, and I believe that everyone feels the necessity and importance of change more than ever before. By changing and going beyond the status quo, NSK will be able to propose solutions that offer new value to society and hone a competitive edge that will enable us to survive in this era of significant change.
The second goal is to be “No.1 in Quality and Trust.” In order to realize a company that will continue to keep society in motion 100 years or even 1,000 years from now, we must continue to be needed, trusted, and relied upon by society. For this reason, I believe that pursuing quality and trust is essential. I would like to maintain and enhance the brand power that our predecessors have built up over the past 100 years, and pass on that pride and confidence to the next generation.
The third goal is to be a “Fulfilling Company to Be a Part Of,” such that people can feel glad to have interacted with NSK in any capacity. Since I joined the company, I have been blessed with the opportunity to meet and work with so many amazing people, and this has contributed a lot to how much I enjoy my work. I want to make NSK a company where the experience of working here becomes an ongoing learning experience and is valuable to each employee.
