Human Resource Development

At HEPCO, we have defined the type of person that we consider our "ideal employee," and we are working toward developing our personnel so that they are able to attain that ideal.
Through our Young Employee Development Program, we seek to have our younger employees acquired the basic attitude, knowledge and skills essential during the initial five years of their career as a HEPCO employee. To that end, we energetically support our younger employees through a system in which they formulate their own training and education plans and seek to implement them with the aim of developing basic work skills, ability to think, as well as the ability to dialogue with others and communicate.
