In October 2021, the NTT Group unveiled its "New Management Style." In addition to promoting the appointment of female managers (newly appointed managers in FY2021: 29% (target 30%)), introducing new work styles (from July 2022) based on remote work and expanding satellite offices (551 locations at the end of September 2022) for promoting work-in-life (health management) through the workplace-residence proximity, we began a trial at the holding company from October 2022 for decentralizing the organization in order to enhance resilience.
We believe that promoting diverse work styles and increasing opportunities to harness the capabilities of people from diverse backgrounds will help achieve a more open, global and innovative business. We are promoting the participation of women, foreign employees and outside personnel as part of these efforts to increase the choices for working time, place, and residence. The NTT Group has reviewed its personnel system to assign the right person to the right job at the right time regardless of their gender, years employed, or age. We are focusing on specialization, encouraging self-guided career formation, and also raising the starting salary of new recruits as part of efforts to revise the personnel system for general employees.
The NTT Group focuses on assigning the best-suited person to the work and post, regardless of age, and is moving ahead with self-guided career development that will result in better earnings for the company by boosting the motivation of employees to take on challenges and encouraging them to enhance their skills by acquiring specialized knowledge. To achieve this, we are implementing a system for posts with clearly defined roles that assigns the right person to the right job, while taking into account employees' career plans, in line with the jobbased personnel system introduced in October 2021 for all management positions. We will also be rolling out a system for general employees from April 2023, built on a revised personnel compensation system with a greater focus on specialization so that employees can work on enhancing their professional areas of specialization and forge their own path forward.
Providing customers with a new sense of excitement only comes about due to having the motivation or taking action to create something new. In fact, each and every idea or product is created by a "person." We believe that employees creating added value helps to increase convenience throughout our customers' lifestyles and can even lead to the development of new social trends. All of these revisions have helped to inspire each and every employee to further increase their specializations and acquire or maximize their skills and have resulted in the creation of a working environment that allows them to create added value in a broad range of fields. Creating new value by reforming business and expanding into new business areas will provide the impetus for continued growth and development through the entire NTT Group.
In fiscal 2021, NTT Group revamped its existing Employee Satisfaction Survey, which focused on questions relating to ease of working, and added questions relating to job satisfaction as an indicator for defining culture. It also conducted a Group-wide Engagement Survey to quantify employees' attachment to and trust in the company to which they belong as an "engagement score." By understanding the issues that need to be improved for establishing corporate culture, and by taking action to make improvements, we hope to establish a corporate culture where employees identify with the company's and organization's policies and strategies, as well as feeling pride in their work.

In September 2021, we declared our policy aimed at eliminating the pressures of job transfers or working away from their family, as part of efforts to create work styles throughout the entire NTT Group that are no longer constrained by location or time. In July 2022, we introduced a work system that generally allows employees to work anywhere as long as they reside in Japan, and successfully rolled out Remote Standard for 30,000 employees, around half of all of those working at the Group's main companies. We believe that flexible work styles encourage individual diversity, dialog and innovation, which will lead to a work environment that delivers positive business outcomes.
The NTT Group began initiatives for decentralizing the organization from metropolitan areas to regional areas (core cities)
