At OMRON, we aim to create a better society by solving social issues through our business centered on the OMRON Principles. Thus we introduce our efforts that aim for improvements in sustainable corporate value by means of implementing the OMRON Principles.

TOGA(The OMRON Global Awards)

“The OMRON Global Awards (TOGA)” is an initiative that encourages the circles of empathy and resonance to expand while permeating the OMRON Principles, which is the source of OMRON's strength, to every employee by sharing the story of how the OMRON Principles are implemented across the entire company on a global basis.

Workplace dialogues on the OMRON Principles

To deepen employee awareness of the importance of practicing the OMRON Principles in day-to-day work, a dialogue has been set up at each workplace. On May 10, the OMRON Group Founder’s Day, employees at each worksite worldwide present their implementation of the Principles and have discussions with their colleagues. These dialogues are more than stereotyped meetings—the original ideas of each department or manager are incorporated to allow employees to share their personal experiences putting the OMRON Principles into practice, and the thoughts they have incorporated into their actions. Discussions also address each employee’s plan for implementing these principles in the future. One participant in the dialogue remarked, "Through this dialogue, I learned that my colleagues are practicing the principles in various ways through their respective work. This further encouraged my implementation of the principles."

Dialogues with top executives regarding the OMRON Principles (OMRON Principles Missionary Dialogues)

At OMRON, Chairman Fumio Tateishi visits OMRON Group sites in each region throughout the world to engage in discussions with local managers. Called the "OMRON Principles Missionary Dialogue," this initiative is aimed at strengthening the practice of the OMRON Principles.

In fiscal 2016, missionary dialogues were held at a total of ten sites in Malaysia, India (Gurgaon and Mumbai), China (Shanghai and Shenzhen), the U.S. (San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Chicago), the Netherlands, and Germany. Under the theme of "Relating the OMRON Principles to Everyday Work," the Chairman talked on the importance of keeping the OMRON Principles in mind when conducting daily work. He also shared his own experience of practicing the principles as a business manager. During the dialogues, all participants shared individual cases of implementing the principles, which resonated throughout the group. Based on the discoveries they gained through the dialogues, enthusiastic discussions followed regarding action plans for practicing the OMRON principles in the future. The missionary dialogues serve as an important opportunity to encourage local managers to accelerate the implementation of the OMRON Principles. OMRON plans to continue missionary dialogues in fiscal 2017 and beyond.
