In recognition of the need for a diverse workplace and varied, distinct perspectives, Capcom is promoting executive positions of female employees, the company announced in their latest financial review.
“Capcom is fully recognizing the importance of diversity of human resources in recent years while actively utilizing female workers and making evaluations according to performance and not based on gender, age and such. As part of such efforts, we are promoting executive positions of female employees, and so far we have two female corporate officers and 20 female employees in management positions such as general managers and senior managers.”
The financial review also revealed that Monster Hunter 4 “displayed explosive popularity with long lines forming at major retailers across the nation [Japan],” going on to sell over four million units. Its success contributed to an operating income earnings increase of 1.5 percent from the company’s last fiscal year, as well as a 15.9 percent increase in net income from the previous year.
Monster Hunter 4 is expected to arrive in North America and Europe early 2015.
