KYOCERA reflects on integral philosophy of Founder Dr. Kazuo Inamori to respect the divine and love people
For KYOCERA Document Solutions, one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, the philosophy of its founder, Dr. Kazuo Inamori, is an integral element of every aspect of the business. On World Philosophy Day, the organisation reflects on the importance of such a fundamental pillar in everyday life within the company.
KYOCERA’s founder, Dr. Kazuo Inamori, is convinced that the only way to a prosperous future for the human race and our planet is to follow the principle of coexistence. This indicates that all living things depend on each other for survival and inspired the corporate motto “Respect the Divine and Love People”.
Management within KYOCERA Document Solutions is therefore focused on collaboration and respect in all senses, including taking care of the environment. The latter is reflected in KYOCERA’s numerous environmental activities, and is also recognised by the market-leading ECOSYS range as well as the ISO 14001:2015 certification for environmental standards awarded earlier this year.
“We are proud to follow our corporate beliefs in everything we do here at KYOCERA Document Solutions, following on from the foundations first laid down by Dr. Inamori almost 60 years ago”, underscores company President, Takuya Marubayashi.
“From management to everyday tasks, we always ensure that we are following the concept of coexistence, contributing to a happy and prosperous future for humankind. In honour of World Philosophy Day, we would like to share our vision with everyone – a vision that all humans can grow together by helping and respecting each other”.
The KYOCERA philosophy is a life philosophy that derives from experience and overcoming challenges. Dr. Kazuo Inamori’s principles for life and work were influenced by his own struggles as a young entrepreneur. Now, the aim is to encourage employees to follow the KYOCERA ideology as “it will make them happy and help the business as a whole”.
World Philosophy Day, introduced by UNESCO in 2002, is celebrated through events and discussions around the globe to raise awareness of the importance of philosophy and renew people’s commitment to this field. The goal is to foster philosophical analysis and research on contemporary problems, making it possible to face challenges more effectively, as KYOCERA Document Solutions employees do on a daily basis.
