Furthermore, space is limited with the printed company newsletter and the amount of informa-tion we can communicate must be narrowed down.To address this, we installed digital signage in the factories and employee dining areas to transmit information on Group compa-nies around the world and new products, videos related to man-agement policies, and other content. This created an environment that allows manufacturing floor employees to naturally come across company information in the course of their daily work. This measure received a strong reception from over 90% of factory floor employees, and in response to requests from other work-places, we are currently moving forward with digital signage installations Companywide.We are also working to bolster internal communication for employees overseas. Headed by topics contributed by correspondents at our major bases abroad, we regularly update the president’s blog and upload a variety of videos to an intranet site in English. In 2019, we held a global meeting gathering together these correspondents and exchanged information on the state of internal communication in their respective countries and shared model examples.Online version of Revs, Revs+Revs+TV video portalMessage from ManagementFor this project, we wanted to raise the motivation of employees working on the frontlines of manufacturing. So we decided to focus on the feelings and pride these employees hold toward their respective jobs as well as depict-ing them in their daily endeavors, thereby expressing what makes us unique as a company. This approach was not only well received by the employees themselves but also resonated with their families, people seeking employment, and others. The high marks this special edition received in an objective review is very encouraging, and I would like to continue to play a role in connecting employees, departments, and others with little cross-division interaction due to their work through communication.Yuko KurabeInternal Communication Group Manager,Corporate Communication Division, Corporate Planning & Finance Center49Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd.
