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 across Group companies.

At the end of the 24 months, the expectation is that MAP participants are subject matter experts in their functional insurance discipline and also in Tokio Marine’s global business approach and the Good Company vision.

In preparation for the first functional rotations, participants engage in a two-week orientation focused on synthesizing the Good Company philosophy including Tokio Marine’s emphasis on corporate social responsibility and diversity. This orientation supports and prepares MAP participants for 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.

The program also includes 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.

A professional mentor/advisor supports participants through the experience by providing 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 full-time associates at one of our global companies.

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 from Tokio Marine Group companies worldwide. Four to five participants from one Tokio company make up a team. They are tasked with implementing a business process improvement or strategy project for their company. Besides adding value to their respective companies through their project, each person also has the opportunity to grow within the extensive Tokio Marine Group global network.

Participants selected for the program range in level from senior individual contributors to the assistant vice president level. The program focuses on enhancing organizational savvy, communication skills, strategic thinking, teamwork, and initiative. In addition, teams receive guidance from program alumni who serve as mentors, which provides further opportunities for individual development and organic business synergies. The program finale requires each team to present its project to Tokio Marine 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.
