Astellas provides employees with opportunities to succeed globally in a variety of ways. In Japan, we have established an internal recruitment system to revitalize our organization and support employees in developing their own abilities and growing, while encouraging our people to succeed in roles at various overseas bases by proactively appointing employees from each division to be assigned abroad. In addition, we accept long-term and short-term assignees from Group companies outside Japan. In these and other ways, we are working to promote global interaction among our people at the divisional level.
