    • Team Work
    Classmethod Leadership Principle (CLP) The Classmethod Leadership Principles (CLP) are the guidelines and values of our employees. Leadership Based on the idea that all employees are leaders, we make initiatives without waiting for instructions or expecting others to take responsibility. We strive to achieve the best result possible without any compromise, while involving and cooperating with our colleagues. Partnership We treat each other equally as partners and respect each other regardless of employment status (employee, part-time worker, outsourcer), company (parent company, subsidiary company), role (supervisor, subordinate), or job (engineer, back office). Diversity We learn about diverse values such as age, gender, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, and disability. We also support each other at different life stages such as childbirth, childcare, and nursing care, and we use this experience to our strength. Professionalism With expertise, we will continue to learn with dignity and humility, and strive to demonstrate our outstanding abilities. Furthermore, we act as a catalyst to help others grow and change. Appreciation We speak and act with respect, trust, and gratitude. All work is based on trust. We do not prioritize on what returns we get, but rather voluntarily strive to have a positive impact on those around us. Customer Perspective We create products by thinking deeply from the customer's point of view, considering what they really need, how to make their experience pleasent, and what we can do to develop and continually provide to them. Feedback We value all feedback from our customers as well as our team. We proactively seek feedback, see it in a positive point of view, and make improvements quickly and continuously. Likewise, while giving feedback to others, we communicate it clearly so that they can take concrete action. Output of information The output of knowledge leads to the greatest input, which leads to the person's growth. In order to continue contributing to the creative activities of all people, we will continue to provide concrete and easy-to-understand information to society. We believe that our experience and knowledge will be useful to others, and we will continue our activities to connect them to the next generation. Try it. Taking too much time to consider, looking for reasons not to do something, or doing nothing at all, is a major loss of opportunity. We try small and immediate projects first with curiosity, but not basing our decisions solely on past experience and knowledge at the same time. Starting earlier, facing faileures and improving faster is our greatest survival strategy. Have fun We enjoy tackling difficult work and work that many people don't like to do. We like major changes and enjoy them as opportunities for growth. We keep ourselves physically and mentally healthy so that we can enjoy these things. We speak up and act accordingly, so that everyone can enjoy their work.
