Introduction of SELVAS
SELVAS is a rain forest where plants grow most quickly in the whole world.
SELVAS exists for the purpose of developing customers, shareholders, and members rather
than simply selling products and making profits.
『SELVAS』 is a rain forest where plants grow most quickly in the whole world.
It is the management philosophy of SELVAS to pursue the growth through continuous challenge.
The last 20 years have been the driving force to lead SELVAS for the next 80 years and
SELVAS has been united into SELVAS Group in order to create corporate culture that can continue to grow for 100 years.
SELVAS anticipates new challenge and growth that are to come.

Autonomous corporate culture for horizontal communication and self-initiated immersion
Abolition of job grading system and English name
SELVAS breaks down the barrier of job ranking and aims for horizontal communication, using English name. SELVAS creates culture where roles are more important than work position.
A change in environment leads to a change in thought. SELVAS has built ‘SELVAS Hub Lounge’ where office and rest area are combined and use of partitions for desks has been minimized so as to encourage the smooth communication between employees. All conference rooms and CEO’s office have the transparency enhanced with glass walls.
Town Hall Meeting / Fun Fun Event
SELVAS hosts Town Hall Meeting on a regular basis to offer a chance to any employees to join a meeting and have liberal communication. Fun Fun Event is also held for all employees to gather and congratulate on even small achievements in each business area.
There is Refresh Day for employees to leave work at 4PM once a month to spend time with their family or do self-improvement activities.
Flexible working system
There is the flexible working system that allows employees that cannot perform full-time work due to child rearing or learning related to their work to adjust their working hours.
Flexible use of annual leave
All employees can use annual leave flexibly. SELVAS has created corporate culture where any employees can use their annual leave given without studying the atmosphere at work.
Dual Career Path for growth (Management goal)
SELVAS runs the Dual Career Path System. It is for offering customized chances that satisfy both general managers and specialists through Y-shape career management
No one needs to be a leader (Higher position) just because they are older and have more experiences. SELVAS believes that technical skills of a company can been deepened when genuine technical specialists are respected.
Not everyone that are older and have worked longer can perform a role of a general manager well. The faster we give persons with potential to become a general manager a chance even though they are not enough at present, the more good quality leaders we can have.
