Q&A

Q. Could you tell me what you value about your work?

See it from the other person’s point of view. Accounting is essential for a company to manage its cash flow and support correct management decisions. That said, many people have this image of accounting as being professional and difficult, and in fact, it is also difficult to get into. Therefore, when responding to inquiries from other departments and giving them accounting explanations, I try to be aware of providing easy-to-understand explanations. The accounting department supports the operations of other departments from specialized fields such as accounting and taxation. When I support someone, I always think that it is important to see it from their point of view.

Q. Could you tell me about any significant growth in your career so far?

After switching to a technical position, I was made responsible for a system renovation project. I joined Sysmex in an office administration position, and in the Fall of my first year, my senior manager suggested that I switch to a technical position. At that time, I was learning accounting, and I wasn’t sure whether or not I could fulfill the duties of a technical position employee because these jobs are so different. As I started working in an office administration position, my interests expanded and I began to think about changing jobs, and in the Fall of my fourth year, I changed to a technical position. Following this change, I became more involved with work reform efforts. As an example, I had the opportunity to lead members in an accounting system refurbishment project. In addition to system-related tasks such as system requirement definition and verification, I was still busy preparing for system operation, such as providing company-wide guidance and creating manuals. There were times when it was difficult to balance this with my other tasks, but thanks to the cooperation of my manager, seniors, and juniors, I was able to repair the system, which was one of the project issues. Being able to run the new system on schedule gave me a lot of confidence.

Q. Could you tell me about balancing your work and private life?

The accounting department has a certain type of monthly schedule. Since I can predict when I will be the busiest workwise, it is easy to schedule my private life around it. When my work allows, I sometimes go out drinking with friends or go shopping after work. Also, because I like traveling, I attended my cousin’s wedding in Hawaii last year and went on a trip with my friends to the resort town of Da Nang in Vietnam. In addition, Sysmex offers a very generous welfare program to promote health maintenance. I am very happy that the company supports medical expenses and gym membership fees. Currently, I go to the gym once a week to help with my lack of exercise. However, there are many times when I can’t achieve my goal (laughs).
