Asics talent management
We want to ensure our strong, diverse and inclusive team of employees is supported in their day-to-day work and their long-term careers. We do this through career support, coaching and leadership training.
Training and development opportunities include ASICS Academy (our next-generation leader development program), the Sustainable Fashion Academy (which lets employees learn about sustainability in the fashion industry), and new employee training.
Diversity and inclusion
In order to help people achieve a ‘Sound Mind, Sound Body’, we need people who look at the world from every angle. That is why we are committed to inclusion across race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation, and gender identity, to build a diverse team who can drive our innovations and can truly improve people’s lives.
One Team, Stronger Together
Our Diversity and Inclusion Vision is called One Team, Stronger Together. This describes how we as an organization envision a future where people of all backgrounds can play a role in improving people’s lives to achieve a ‘Sound Mind, Sound Body’. We set targets across all regions to improve the diversity of our workforce.

Online STAYHOME initiative for employees working from
With the restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic, many people moved less – they worked from home, so they didn’t need to walk during their journey to work, sports facilities were often closed, and team sports were on hold. To help our employees to keep moving, we continued our online
fitness program. Since 2020, the staff at ASICS Sports Complex TOKYO BAY – an urban hypoxia (low-oxygen) environment training facility operated by ASICS – have been holding online
seminars for employees.
The 2020 results of our annual ASICS Health Care Check (AHCC) showed changes in physical fitness during COVID-19. The stay- at-home guidance issued throughout the pandemic unfortunately resulted in a decrease in physical fitness. However, participating
in online fitness at least three times a week for eight weeks did significantly improve leg strength and shoulder flexibility.
