“I am incredibly proud that Konica Minolta has been awarded Top Employer accreditation for a seventh year. This is due to the dedication of all our employees to create an inspiring and inclusive place to work. Also, a huge thank you to the Konica Minolta people and culture team, who work continually to develop and enhance our employee-centric programmes.”

Chief People Officer at Konica Minolta

Konica Minolta’s career development programme continues to evolve, enabling the company to attract people from different walks and stages of life, as well as providing them with a clear career path and opportunities to flourish and progress. This includes Early Careers Business Professional apprenticeships that gives school and college leavers the opportunity to kickstart their careers, develop new skills and make a positive impact. Longer-serving members of the team are afforded time and support to hone their skill sets in a specific area, and transition into another part of the business to explore their full potential.
 
In 2023, the company announced that each of its approximately 600 employees working throughout the UK will be encouraged to spend one working day per year volunteering at local community projects and supporting charities’ initiatives. To aid in their efforts Konica Minolta has developed a Social Impact App that employees can use on their mobile devices to help keep track of their volunteering and fundraising activities and share them with colleagues.
 
Konica Minolta is also proud to have extended its Wellbeing strategy through the Breathe Employee Resource Group (ERG), a group of dedicated wellbeing enthusiasts that represent working across all areas of the business. In 2023, this strategy became a real focus for Konica Minolta, with all people leaders participating in Mental Health Awareness Training. The course gave leaders the tools to help identify the signs of struggle much earlier, as well as how to signpost to further support, whether that be through the Employee Assistance Programme, or external professionals.
 
The company also launched two Wellbeing Toolkits for employees and people leaders that provide numerous resources and signposting methods regarding mental health, as well as guidance to help leaders look after the wellbeing of their team.
 
In November 2023, Konica Minolta introduced a Monthly Pulse Survey, inviting employees to share their experience of working for the company, and their levels of engagement and satisfaction. These insights enable the company to tailor its Wellbeing Strategy and initiatives across its full employee experience offering.
