Message from the leader - Yolanda Sun, General Manager of Human Resources, Asia Pacific

It is often said that 'Mitsui Is People'. Why so? Because we believe in the collective power of our diverse pool of talented people to interact, connect and create new values for our businesses and customers.

Through our long history, we have evolved continuously with an open mindset and spirit of 'Challenge and Innovation'. To stay in tune with the changing times and thrive in this VUCA world, we seek people with a strong sense of curiosity, ownership and integrity.

To shape the future, we prepare our people through our own in-house programs such as Talent Development Program, Grade-Based Training Program,Regional Training Program, Mitsui Case Study, etc. in Asia Pacific. This is on top of our HQ’s global programs, some of which are in collaboration with world-class business school. As accumulation of varied experiences is key to honing frontline business expertise, our people have the opportunity do so through international assignment, domestic secondment, internal job opportunity and cross-divisional transfer.

With our commitment to Level Playing Field where the right person is assigned to the right position, local talents have been groomed and promoted to department and even country head. This initiative will expedite as local talents will be central in creating businesses aligned with local needs for global development.

If ‘challenge and innovation’ is your cup of tea and you want to create a future for the next generation, join us!

Yolanda Sun,
General Manager of Human Resources
