Launch of SOMPO Care University–an In-House University (July 2017)

Sompo Care Group launched the SOMPO Care University in July 2017. The institution will spearhead the company's human resources development strategy, which is based on the basic management policy of Respect for People and encompasses the theme of enabling all employees to sense their own personal growth. The SOMPO Care University goes beyond the scope of conventional training programs by collaborating with universities and vocational colleges. Sompo Care Group plans to develop the university as a comprehensive R&D center for nursing care.

Deploying Virtual Reality in Dementia Care Training (March 2017)

Sompo Care Group introduced virtual reality (VR) in March 2017 as a tool for training personnel in dementia care. The episode-type VR content enables staff to experience the core symptoms of dementia, giving them a sense of what daily life is like for people suffering from the affliction. The first-person simulated experience helps put staff in their customers’ shoes, giving them an idea of the anxiety and confusion associated with dementia. That enables them to better use their knowledge and skills in caring for people with dementia.
