Life at Nissan

At Nissan, we are committed to becoming the most innovative, trusted, and environmentally responsible car company in the world. To do this Nissan relies on two things: world-class people and innovative vehicles - vehicles that lead the market for innovation and excitement.

The innovative thinking that has propelled Nissan and Infiniti vehicles to the forefront of the automotive industry is also propelling the development of our most valuable resource…our people.

Today’s business climate encourages a culture of life-long learning, and if individuals have the power to perform, Nissan will continue to grow and compete globally.

Successful business today is about ensuring that this environment of life-long learning is alive and growing.

Most Nissan locations provide exciting Targeted Leadership Training programmes that cover those subtle, yet critical skills, which truly effective leaders possess. Nissan partners with some of the field’s leading experts and many universities to facilitate workshops and training seminars to enhance your career progression. Some topics include Leadership Essentials, Building Trust, Change Leadership, Business Acumen, and many others.

Development for High Performers

Nissan provides unique Special Accelerated Development programmes for high-performing employees. These special opportunities are multi-day, intensive workshops, which provide the opportunity to stretch and grow their own leadership skills in preparation for a future leadership role. Many of these intensive workshops provide follow-up development opportunities including assessment, feedback, coaching, and mentoring opportunities.

Cross-functional Teams

Unique to Nissan, we offer the opportunity to work with others globally through Cross-Functional Teams known as CFTs. These special CFTs are focused on addressing special topics (i.e. Supply Chain Excellence, Monozukuri, and Quality of Management) and are composed with team members from a variety of different functions, multiple levels, and diverse experiences.

These teams challenge the organisation by creating a pipeline of transformative ideas with immediate impact on the organisation. Each CFT uses Nissan’s V-up (Six Sigma-type program) principles, processes and tools to identify bold, creative proposals, and solutions for decision and action.
