  3. Unique Management System Although Bosch is one of the world's

    largest automotive parts suppliers, it remains privately held. Bosch's special management structure separates "management (voting rights)" and "shareholders (profit dividends)”, which is uncommon in the world. Robert Bosch Stiftung GmbH (Robert Bosch Foundation), an independent organization, owns 94% of the shares, but has no voting rights (management rights). The majority of voting rights are held by Robert Bosch Industrietreuhand KG, an industrial trust that does not have profit benefits. By adhering to the management style of "giving money, but not giving orders", it is possible to focus on stable management and R&D from a long-term perspective, rather than short-term profits.

  12. Management Message Bosch Corporation Head of Driver Experience Business Unit

    Daisuke Abe Joined Bosch in 1999. After gaining experience in the Viecle Motion Division, currently Head of the Driver Experience (DX) Business Unit in the Cross-Domain Computing Solutions (XC) Division. Until now, Bosch has placed manufacturing at the center of its business and focused on hardware. However, as the automotive industry is said to be facing a once-in-a-century transformation, Bosch is also facing a period of change. That is, as automotive systems rapidly replace hardware with software, there will be an even greater need for software-savvy associates. That is why we would like to ask people who can add new value to cars through software to join us and lend a hand. You do not need prior knowledge of cars, because you can learn about them after joining Bosch. Rather than knowledge of cars, we are looking for software skills and one's mindset or way of thinking in software development. We sincerely look forward to those who will make use of their experience in other industries and take on the challenge of transforming Bosch together.
  13. FUSION Project In 2024, a new research and development center

    will be opened in Tsuzuki Ward, Yokohama City. In order to strengthen development capabilities in the software field in Japan, Bosch is constructing a new research and development facility that will consolidate approximately 2,000 associates, with an investment of approximately 39 billion yen . This is the largest capital investment since Bosch's entry into the Japanese market in 1911.
  14. Grow Opportunities for Growth A wide range of programs to

    enhance your career . Career Design Program This program gives associates the opportunity to easily think about their careers. Associates can design their own careers while working on various tasks with several colleagues and combining the viewpoints of others. JADP (Junior Associate Development Program) This is a selective training program for associates in their 20s. In addition to clarifying career goals through carefully selected programs, associates will also undertake project work on business challenges provided by executives. XC Dojo (Divisional Voluntary Study Sessions) Associates in each business division actively hold study sessions with each other to provide opportunities for sharing trends in the mobility market and to learn about technologies that will be indispensable for future cars, such as AI, IoT, and DevOps. Career Workshops & Follow-up Measures This is a career development program for associates in their 40s and above. Bosch provides opportunities for associates of this generation, who are starting to become stable, to think anew about their own careers. Combined with a one-year follow-up measure, this program encourages career development activities to become a habit. Support for Qualifications Subsidy for TOEIC test expenses Support for the acquisition of qualifications for skill improvement, such as subsidies for the IPA (Information Technology Engineers Examination) fee Topics Expenditure of 280 billion yen over 10 years to reskill associates Bosch Training Centers, specialized organizations that provide training and learning tools, have been established in seven locations around the world, including Japan, to promote a company-wide learning culture.

  16. Enjoy Work-Life Balance Bosch's working style helps associates to enjoy

    a balance of both work and private time . Rate of taking paid leave Maintain rate around 100% Remote work rate 80% *Survey results excluding manufacturing sites Average overtime 12 hours Turnover rate 2.5% Percentage of associates taking childcare leave Male 25% Female 100% *2020 data
  17. Enjoy Childcare Leave for Male Associates An environment where both

    genders can balance childcare and work. At Bosch, where it is natural for both men and women to participate in child- rearing, in recent years the number of male employees taking childcare leave has exceeded that of women. Social gatherings for employees on childcare leave provide opportunities to share concerns about childcare. In addition, the Family@bosch community of associates is also active.

Joined Bosch in 2017 Cross-Domain Computing Solutions Division Advanced Network Solutions System Architect I took two months of childcare leave when my first son was born, and four months when my second son was born. I returned to work following childcare leave for my first son, but my child often cried at night and I had a lack of sleep for about a month. Based on that experience, I extended the childcare leave when my second son was born. For me, childcare leave also had a lot to do with caring for my wife's physical and mental wellbeing after giving birth. In addition, before and after childcare leave, my boss who has a child consulted with me, and together we thought about how to build a career while valuing family time. (Fiscal year)
  18. Inspire Leadership & Culture At Bosch we believe that we

    all have a leadership role. In other words: "We all lead Bosch". We have established three principles for achieving leadership and are implementing various measures. INITIATIVE RESPECT SPARK Positioning leadership as a required competency for all associates, regardless of their position, and evaluating and providing feedback Developing a framework that provides a large number of leadership information sessions, events, and tools, and establishing an environment in which everyone can learn and put it into practice Establishing an environment in which associates can participate on their own initiative in company-wide activities to communicate about leadership (associates can form teams with senior associates from different divisions, occupations, and positions, and work together as colleagues)
  19. Inspire Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Diversity is our advantage. Bosch

    strives to create an environment where associates can work in their own way , regardless of race, gender, age, nationality, etc. Ex. Diversity Initiatives: LGBTQ Ally Activities Many associates, including the president, declare themselves allies and implement initiatives to promote mutual understanding Established a personnel system to certify the partners of associates who are not legally married as "registered partners" within the company Promote dialogue by holding networking events with associates and allies (LGBTQ+AllyTalk Sessions) * An ally is a person who understands LGBTQ issues, accepts and supports their activities, and acts together.
  20. Work #LikeABosch Member J.H. Vehicle Motion Division Engineering Brake Systems

    Engineering Software Department Software Engineer Profile I worked for a Japanese automotive parts manufacturer for about 5 years, and was in charge of designing resin parts for fuel tanks. I joined Bosch in 2022 and changed careers to software engineering even though I was inexperienced in it. Currently, I am involved in the development of software to control brakes and I am working hard to improve my skills. Reason for joining Bosch The parts development for fuel tanks that I was in charge of was downsized due to the global trend of reducing carbon emissions, so I thought about changing jobs. Actually, I had applied for a job at Bosch when I was a new graduate. At that time, unfortunately I was not recruited. However, the reason I joined Bosch in 2022 was that I received a proposal from a recruitment agency and I thought that I would try again. Merits of working at Bosch Although I started without experience as a software engineer, I was able to acquire basic knowledge through OJT and study sessions. It is a great merit that Bosch has a good training environment. Also, I think it is attractive that there is a lot of diversity in careers, just like I myself made a career change from another area.
