Sony’s original Founding Prospectus set forth a management commitment to enable each individual to fully exercise his or her abilities and skills. Sony co-founder Akio Morita once said to the company’s newest recruits, “If you ever find yourself regretting that you joined Sony, quit right away. You only live once. Once you truly commit to working at Sony, there is a mutual responsibility. I hope you won’t arrive at the end of your life with regrets about having worked at Sony.”
To fulfill these founding principles, Sony is constantly working to enhance working conditions and keep employees motivated by offering a mutually stimulating environment in which diverse individuals can enjoy work-life balance, have confidence in the company and management team, and share a commitment to creating value in Sony’s businesses. Sony implements diverse structural, environmental, and cultural initiatives, so that ambitious and self-motivated employees can grow with Sony and continue to create value.
