7. Is it true that in a Japanese organization such as Panasonic, non-Japanese employees do not get promoted to senior management positions?
Contrary to this erroneous perception, in Panasonic we emphasize the importance and value of localising the positions held by Japanese expatriates. Localization is one of the pillars of Panasonic India and we are fully committed to honoring the same. Panasonic has a Global Executive Programme that identifies high potential employees and nurtures them to fill senior management positions when they are ready.

Any position in Panasonic India is filled based purely on merit. An existing employee whom the company has identified as High-Potential and has been trained & developed can fill the position. Please refer to our Career Development page for further details on High-Potential candidates.
If a suitable internal candidate is not available, local talents outside the company will be sourced to fill the position.

Contrary to this erroneous perception, the recruitment philosophy in Panasonic is to embrace diversity where recruitment is not limited to gender, race, nationality etc. Similarly in our career progression, there is no cause for concern due to gender. Panasonic fills all positions based purely on candidates' merit.
