Living and Working Together For The Common Good... - Kyosei
Kyosei unites Canon and its employees in contributing to the prosperity of humanity and the protection of the world we share. As a leading provider of consumer, business-to-business, and industrial digital imaging solutions, our determination to live and work together for the common good permeates everything we do, from research and development, to product manufacturing, marketing, sales and distribution.
Canon's founding mission
was to build a company that created high-quality cameras. Canon realized this dream in 1936 when it released the Hansa Canon, Japan's first 35mm focal-plane shutter camera. Since that time, our technological strengths have helped us to also become a leading digital imaging and networking company and a dominant force in personal and office printers, copiers, controllers and fax machines. We also have applied our innovative skills in environmental technologies, as well as medical, semiconductor, and broadcasting equipment. We will continue to develop innovative technologies as a means of bettering the world we live in - redefining the workplace and enhancing lifestyles.
Life at Canon
We work together under the guiding principles of the San-Ji Spirit, our code of conduct:
- Ji-hatsu (Self-Motivation): Take the initiative & be proactive.
- Ji-Chi (Self-Management): Conduct yourself responsibly & be accountable.
- Ji-kaku (Self-Awareness): Understand the situation & your role in it.
Since the first New York office opened in 1955, we have been at the forefront of innovation with the goal of bettering the world we live in.
