About the Client

Established in 1949 in Japan, our client is a global manufacturer of automotive components offering advanced automotive technologies, systems, and products. From humble beginnings as a small company, it has grown to become a global Fortune 500 company with around 170.000 employees. As of March 2021, the company has 200 subsidiaries around the world and consolidated reported revenue of $44 billion.

Business challanges


Akkodis Academy in Japan started this project in 2020 and currently has 80 engineers providing technical capabilities to this client. Our team is building an electronic software development platform called ‘Strengthen Client’s Software Development’ to improve the software for our ongoing education provision and set up a development system to support it.

In a world of ever-expanding digital transformation, the client has been trying to build a large-scale software development system. However, the client’s software development needs outstripped our human resources capacity.

Our solution

Akkodis’ team creates a career map to serve as a standard for employees' career plans. To increase the number of human resources by changing job classifications in the software system, we review the criteria for training and evaluation of the required talent.

We also offer consulting services to help build the infrastructure for the client’s educational system. We set up a curriculum spanning from the implementation of educational programs to the measurement of their effectiveness, and we provide support for visualizing educational outcomes.

Finally, we follow up on securing assignments after changing jobs. If the client’s department is unable to provide a sufficient number of employees for on-the-job training, we consider accepting them in our outsourced team after they have completed the required learning pathway.


Automotive & Transportation


By leveraging our client’s strengths in the three areas of mechanics, electronics, and software, we work to solve the social issues that the client needs to address.

In addition, we help the client to develop specific products and services, as well as design and build business models that are sustainable, profitable, and contribute to society’s welfare.

Akkodis’ team succeeded in attracting software engineers to support the client in improving the quality and speed of development of the control systems for electric vehicles, connected cars, and automated driving more quickly than competitors.
