Learning & Development

Our Approach

The Suntory Group takes a medium-to-long-term approach to human resource development and strive to present opportunities for growth to all of our employees, regardless of nationality, age, etc.

・Providing new challenges through growth fields (by business, region and function)

The Suntory Group started out as a merchant in foreign liquors and expanded into beer, soft drinks, health foods, dining, flowers, and many other areas of business. We also grew internationally out of Japan, and today we do business as a manufacturer in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Oceania, extending across functions and the value chain. As the corporate group develops further in global foods and liquors, we aim to provide ongoing opportunities for career challenges and growth for all employees through our company-wide talent development system.

・Suntory University—a place for Suntory employees worldwide to learn, develop skills, and absorb the corporate philosophy

The Suntory Group opened Suntory University in April 2015 for employees to strengthen our framework for day-to-day learning and build a culture of learning—for developing talent within the group. Suntory University develops a variety of programs for all employees in the group based on four aspects—cultivating a culture of self-development and continued personal growth, sharing and implementing the founding spirit, leadership development, and skills development for the future.
