Learning & Development
The Tokio Marine Management Associates Program (MAP)
The Tokio Marine Management Associates Program (MAP) is a 24-month development program in which associates are moved through a customized, rigorous, and performance-focused rotation schedule in one of four functional tracks:
At the end of the of the 24 months, the expectation is that MAP participants are subject matter experts, not only in their functional insurance discipline, but also in Tokio Marine’s global business approach and the Good Company vision.
In preparation for the first functional rotations, participants engage in volunteer events that are focused on synthesizing the Good Company philosophy and Tokio Marine’s corporate social responsibility. Hunger relief and child welfare are some of the areas in which MAP participants have focused their volunteer efforts.
Early in the program, participants partake in a formal two-week orientation that focuses on teambuilding and professional development. The orientation is designed to support and prepare MAP participants for their upcoming rotations, challenging projects, and global work through learning and exploration in emotional intelligence, Tokio Marine’s global business model, and business and insurance acumen.
Team building activities including a four-day camping trip in Pennsylvania, U.S., with white water rafting and rock climbing provides participants the opportunity to form a strong peer group.
Other program highlights include three full functional-area rotations designed to build skills and increase awareness of the Tokio Marine global brand. Tokio Marine Asia, First Insurance Company of Hawaii, and Tokio Marine Mexico are some of the locations participants are currently placed in rotation.
Program participants are provided a professional mentor who walks through the experience with them and supports them in performance feedback, professional development, and development planning.
The outcome of MAP and its experiential learning approach is that successful participants may be offered placement as a full time associate at any one of our global locations upon completion.

Middle Global Leadership Development Program (MGL)
On a yearly basis Tokio Marine Holdings, Global Talent Management Group welcomes around 25 participants from group companies from around the world to participate in the Middle Global Leadership Development Program (MGL).
In order to help participants understand the Good Company concept in practice the training begins with a trip to Tohoku in the north of Japan to see the ongoing reconstruction efforts still in progress since the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami (March 11th, 2011), and also to meet with insurance agents and staff who were there for support following the disaster.
Participants then return to Tokyo to meet with Group CEO Mr. Tsuyoshi “Nick” Nagano and discuss the Good Company vision, in a lively question and answer session. Participants are then challenged to work together in functional teams and to create a presentation regarding increasing synergy across the Group with a functional focus. Participants conclude their week by making presentations to a number of senior executives and if accepted, their proposals are implemented for the benefit of the Group.
Emerging Leaders Program
Tokio Marine Group continues to increase sustainable growth potential by establishing a solid business platform. As a growing global insurance leader, part of this business platform is to acquire the best talent to serve as the driving force of our value creation. One way this is accomplished is through a mid-level leadership program: The Emerging Leaders Program.
On an annual basis, the Emerging Leaders Program involves three off-site events in the United States with more than 50 participants who represent an average of eleven Tokio Marine Group companies from around the world. There are four to five individuals in each group. The program challenges each Tokio Marine company team with the task of implementing a business process improvement or strategy project to add value to their Group Company.
Participants have the opportunity to grow along with the Tokio Marine Group in an extensive worldwide network.
Participants selected for the program generally range in level from senior individual contributor to the assistant vice president level. The program focuses on enhancing the following competencies: organizational savvy, communication skills, strategic thinking, teamwork, and initiative. As part of the Emerging Leaders Program, current participants have the opportunity to receive guidance from program alumni who serve as mentors, which provides further opportunities for individual development as well as organic business synergies.
The finale for the program requires each team to present their project to not only their own CEO, but also other CEOs and C-level executives across the Americas.
The Emerging Leaders program serves to benefit Tokio Marine’s talent network and global business strategy while upholding the tenets of our Good Company philosophy: Empower Our People, Look Beyond Profit, and Deliver on Commitments.
