At Renesas we continuously strive to drive innovation with a comprehensive portfolio of microcontrollers, analog and power devices. Our mission is to develop a safer, healthier, greener, and smarter world by providing intelligence to our four focus growth segments: Automotive, Industrial, Infrastructure, and IoT that are all vital to our daily lives, meaning our products and solutions are embedded everywhere.
We developed the Renesas Culture in 2020, a mindset or a guideline of conduct that should be shared across the Renesas Group and all our employees.
The guideline acts as the reference point for all our activities, behavior and decision-making, and consists of five elements:
"Transparent, Agile, Global, Innovative, Entrepreneurial." These elements build the foundation to becoming a company that responds flexibly to changes, solves issues, and continues to create value sustainably. Each Renesas Group employee can grab the initiative by embodying this Culture and incorporating it across various decision-making processes in all activities.
Based on our Renesas Culture guideline, we will continue to improve how we listen to the voices of our diverse stakeholders and respond to their trust and expectations. This will enable us to create long-term sustainable value as a responsible global company.
The leadership team's strategy and policy, the company’s current situation, as well as the issues and thoughts of each business organization should be well understood among employees. This is also tightly connected to the "Agile" and "Entrepreneurial" elements described below, and we believe it is fundamental for the success of every individual and organization.
In order to respond to changes in a timely manner, it is necessary to identify the likely outcomes and implications as quickly as possible, make decisions quickly, and rapidly take or correct actions. We must recognize situations, make decisions and act at a high velocity. When a follow-up regarding a task is made from inside and outside the company, employees should understand they are not being "Agile".
Not only the markets that we operate in, but also our customers and our competitors are global, and in order to thrive in this global environment, it is essential for us to have a global perspective. It is true we need better language skills, but there are many other simple steps we can take to facilitate communication, such as organizing discussion agenda, issues, alternative solutions in advance. In particular, numbers are useful as words. Whenever possible, use numbers and data to communicate, and try to share information more smoothly.
In order for Renesas to provide "Innovative" technologies and products and continue to create sustainable social value, it is essential to practice "Innovative" way of conducting business and of thinking. Each and every one of our employees should embody "Innovation" using their imagination and creativity to improve their work and contribute to the realization of a better society.
Individual employees should act professionally, voluntarily, and independently as if they are "running their own business” and are responsible for the results they deliver. Based on our strategies and policies as a company, we aim to develop employees who can think freely and create new value, without being constrained by existing concepts.
