Training & Development

Our people development policy is simple - "Our people learn best by doing". We entrust the role and opportunities to each new hire, and we provide world-class training as well as on the job learning to do this.

Comprehensive new hire training

We have an in-house training program that develops our new hires into business professionals! It is aligned with both classroom-style and practical training followed by on-the-job training with experienced sales mentors. This training continues to improve and accumulate your skills!

On-the-job training

On-the-job training is a core element of the KEYENCE career development program. This again supports our policy, “Our people learn best by doing”.

The purpose of the on-the-job development period is to apply what you learned in classroom training to the actual job, identify areas for improvement and seek advice, and then improve and refine your skills as this cycle continues. There are many opportunities for you to have on-the-job learning at new hire training and after your territory assignment. All employees are here to support your growth - at your assigned office and at HQ.

CEO of your territory

As a KEYENCE sales professional, you will be assigned to your own territory after a few months of our comprehensive new hire training. In your protected territory, you will be responsible for:

  • Business Development
  • Consultative Customer Visits
  • Market Analysis
  • And Everything In-Between

This means you will have a chance to develop a vast array of skills.

Continuous development

The training doesn’t end after the new hire program and you will continue to improve your skills in many ways, such as sales skills, leadership development, management training, and so on. There will continuously be a chance to develop yourself at KEYENCE.

Promote from within

Our directors and managers have developed their career at KEYENCE under our promote-from-within development policy. This means they went through the same training and experiences as you will and are well-suited to provide advice and assist in your career development.

There are many options to advance your career at KEYENCE and the opportunity for management will develop your career even more.

Career Path

At KEYENCE, we are committed to adding value to your career. We believe that employees' continuous development is one of essential things that has strengthened our organisation to become the global leader we are today.

Whether you are pursuing a career in sales or a career in our sales support departments, there is a set career path for all positions at KEYENCE. As part of our career development philosophy, you will have a performance review with your manager every six months, to better understand your current skill set and areas for development to reach the next level.

At KEYENCE, we provide continuous training and development at each stage of your career. You will acquire new skills to grow as a professional and take on new challenges. We solely promote from within which offers countless opportunities for advancement.
