At Toyota, we strive to give everyone encouragement and opportunities for personal and professional development. By fostering mutual trust, and providing learning and training opportunities, we put into practice our principle of continuous improvement. At Toyota, everyone can confidently speak out if they identify a problem, or they think of a way we can do something better. It’s how we ensure there’s a Toyota level of quality in everything we do.
We are proud of the rich diversity of our members, which reflects the different ages, genders, cultures, and nationalities of our customers around the world. We are also committed to enforcing the highest safety standards in all our operations, at all times.
We actively foster diversity in our global workforce, believing it right and fair to enable people of different ages, genders, ethnicities, and cultures to work together and realise their potential with a long-term career with Toyota. This also helps us better reflect the great diversity found among our customers worldwide and build a more sustainable and effective workforce.
Mutual trust between our members at all levels of the business is essential. By openly sharing the direction of the company and changes in the business environment with employees, we build an atmosphere of trust. We encourage open, honest dialogue between management and employees day-to-day and through regular forums and work council groups at local, national, and regional levels. Building trust also helps make people feel confident about identifying and responding to any problems, true to our principle of continuous improvement.
Safety is paramount in our operations worldwide. We enforce the highest levels of protection for the personal safety of our members and the communities around our production facilities. We comply with all international and local legislation requirements and enforce our rigorous standards through formal education and procedures that are constantly monitored, reviewed, and updated.
