For Shinkong Insurance Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "Shinkong Insurance"), "human" is the most import issue of management. Hence, Shinkong Insurance has built and introduced an "organizational memory management system" that innovatively integrates "knowledge management", "customer relationship management" and "organizational memory" to ensure customer satisfaction and improvement of the sense of achievement and work satisfaction of the employees.
Since entering the property insurance industry, I have been thinking of how to help new employees understand the company within the shortest period of time. For this, Shinkong Insurance uses computers and software as aids in helping employees understand the company and the range of their duties in a short time. Especially, employees may not know what their colleagues are doing and the handover of the work is not carried out systematically when they are transferred or moved to another department, so they waste much time in engagement or learning from the very beginning and, nevertheless, they cannot achieve the goal of their work. I discussed my idea with the colleagues of the IT department and planned to create a basic and dynamic information source for the customer, product information and active customer care for customer satisfaction using a complete "organizational memory system" and software like Heart-Run (Note 1). The Vitals/KM system was taken into account to contain educational training courses; FAQs, experiential knowledge and so on, perform knowledge feedback and sharing, and help employees in their learning and growth. The functions, announcements, relevant regulations and operating guidelines must be established to ensure passing on the experience and controlling the business processes with organizational memory as the basis.
