We’re also committed to bringing together dealers and suppliers to foster the kind of innovation and vitality that enables us to achieve our dream of creating products and technologies that make people’s lives better. In this spirit, every Honda associate and business partner is expected to embrace and actively support diversity and the cultural richness and advantages it provides.
We are committed to long-term, innovative, diverse relationships that positively impact our communities and our world. We believe these relationships make it possible for us to deliver excellence each year.
Honda is committed to recruiting candidates from diverse backgrounds to become part of the Honda team. As founder of Honda Motor Co., Soichiro Honda understood the importance of people working as a team. At the center of that philosophy is Respect for the Individual—a fundamental belief that each associate can explore and create his or her own dreams. The atmosphere that encourages associate involvement underlies Honda’s commitment to build the highest quality and most popular motorcycles, automobiles, engines and power products. Bringing together a team of associates with varied experiences and ideas is what defines the success of our team. Therefore, Honda hires qualified people who understand the importance of working as a team. This one-team philosophy allows Honda to accomplish its Company Principle: Maintaining a global viewpoint, we are dedicated to supplying products of the highest quality yet at a reasonable price for worldwide customer satisfaction.
Honda is an equal employment opportunity employer and does not tolerate any form of unlawful discrimination. All employment decisions at Honda are based on merit and pursuant to the principle of equal employment opportunity. Honda ensures that hiring and promotion decisions are made in a non-discriminatory manner by imposing only job-related requirements for hiring and promotion opportunities. In keeping with both the letter and spirit of this policy, Honda will continue to recruit, hire, train and promote into all job levels the most qualified persons without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, veteran’s status or any other protected characteristic in accordance with appropriate law.
Honda remains committed to developing business relationships with a diverse supplier base. Women and minority entrepreneurs can be an excellent source of new ideas and can help us shape products that exceed expectations. After all, our suppliers are a reflection of our customers and our communities.
Honda believes people—in all their diversity—strengthen the competitiveness of our companies and make it possible for us to deliver world-class products. We also believe encouraging diversity within and beyond our corporate boundaries is an important business practice and we urge our suppliers to embrace the same commitment.
We attribute our strong team to two principles that have served us well since the beginning. Respect for the Individual and The Three Joys.
Respect for The Individual enshrines the concept of fairness and equality in every Honda operation around the world. A diversity of ideas and talent is the backbone of what makes our team great. Everyone brings something unique to the table. And collectively they provide a product that fits our diverse customers.
The 3 Joys outline a trio of essential experiences that any individual can expect to enjoy as a member of the Honda family: Joy of Buying. Joy of Selling. Joy of Creating. Together they form our spiritual guide and moral compass. They inform our every decision, practice and objective, and ultimately make working here both professionally rewarding and personally fulfilling.
As a young man Soichiro Honda was gripped by a passion for racing. At age 22, and drawing on his skills as a mechanic, he adapted a V-8 Curtis Wright engine to race on a Ford chassis. He took the wheel himself and promptly broke the Japanese speed record, accelerating up to 75 miles per hour. Honda Racing was born!
But it would be his uncanny ability to adapt racing technology to the wants, needs and desires of the consumer market that would propel his enterprising company into a global giant.
His deep-rooted desire for relentless innovation remains at the very heart of all we do. It powers us to create today’s dreams, and forge them into tomorrow’s innovations. Honda Racing continues to win at all levels of motor racing – from Formula 1 and CART to Indy and Super Bike – and that’s a fitting legacy to a man who lived for victory.
By seeking out our competition, we are motivated to do our absolute best.
Be ready to do everything at the starting time.
Togetherness: the driver, staff and machine are all vitally important.
Be ready to solve unpredictable problems at all times.
The only goal is winning. Concentrate every power on that one goal.
We have highly skilled and passionate associates here at HMIN. They’re agile and engaged, and they work together in an inclusive environment to elevate our plant and our state. They’ve put Indiana on the auto manufacturing map. And they make us proud to call this place home.
Joy. That’s it, really. We aim to create both associate and customer joy. It’s how we sustain our company. And here’s the way we achieve it. We make our workplace safe. We engage our associates. We build quality into every process. We drive efficiency. And we solve problems. It sounds simple, but it takes hard work to achieve joy. Still, that’s our goal, every single day.
