* Introduce some companies
Case study｜Ms. Taeko Hatsushika, Group company of Matsuki Yoko Coco Kara & Co., Ltd. (MCC Management Co., Ltd.)
– Ms. Taeko Hatsushika, MCC Management Co., Ltd. –
Matsumotokiyoshi Holdings Co., Ltd. and Cocokara Fine Co., Ltd. merged in October 2021 to form Matsuki Yoko Cocokara & Company. With the integration of the two companies, it was necessary to implement philosophy penetration training for all of the more than 40,000 employees. Eight months after the introduction of UMU, he shared a case study of UMU being promoted based on the human resource development policy.
-Background of introduction of UMU-
Considering the introduction of a new learning management system on the occasion of the integration. The points of consideration were as follows.
The system must be easy to understand and easy to use, and can be used by all employees in various forms of employment, exceeding 40,000. Easy centralized management of learning, including OJT and OFF-JT Experience the group slogan “Find your “!”
In addition to the above points, the decisive factor for the introduction of UMU was that it was highly compatible with human resource education policies in terms of “not only being given, but also stimulating each other and leading to the creation of a culture of self-learning.”
On April 1, when 42,000 employees were given IDs and started using UMU, the number of active accounts reached 3,600 on the first day. -Case Study-
1.Utilization of UMU at entrance ceremony
In 2022, we will welcome 600 new employees, and due to the influence of Corona, we will hold a joining ceremony and joining experience event online at two venues in Tokyo and Osaka, and will be held three times. Using the limited 2 hours that I could stay at the venue, I used UMU to create bonds with my classmates.
Search for the same group members from the name tags distributed at the venue, and create an introduction board for each group. Post a commemorative photo with the board to UMU and go to fieldwork. Identify the shops and tourist spots to visit based on the photos and hints, clear the mission, and aim for the goal point. By uploading photos taken at tourist spots to UMU, administrators can see how far G has progressed, and new employees say, “Even if you can’t actually meet, there are many sync I could feel it,” was heard.
2. Point program for philosophy penetration
Utilize a point program to have all employees, including part-time workers, understand the “Matsuki Yoko Kokara WAY” (philosophy) in a fun and playful way. By linking the continuous penetration training with the WAY quiz distributed every day, the number of active accounts exceeds 4,000 every day during the training period.
3. Participatory Program Recipe Contest
Until now, judges have only sampled and scored the recipe contests at the venue. Established a special employee award determined by employee votes.
Despite being a voluntary participant, more than 2,000 votes were received, with comments such as “This idea is amazing” and “It looks delicious. I want to try it.”
