Toyoda Precepts

Named after the founder of Toyota Industries Corporation—our parent company—the Toyoda Precepts are a set of values that have been passed down over generations and are at the heart of Raymond’s corporate culture.

Introduced in 1935, the Toyoda Precepts embody the spirit of Sakichi Toyoda and serve as our corporate creed, code of conduct and guiding principles for all Raymond employees. The underlying spirit of the Toyoda Precepts is “Respect for People”; which is in the same spirit as respect for human rights. The Precepts form the foundation of our workplace community, giving all members of the team a framework for making decisions, taking action, and working in harmony with each other.

Raymond's Values

Should you choose to join the Raymond family, you’ll be introduced to the Toyoda Precepts and encouraged to:

  1. Always be faithful to your duties, thereby contributing to the Company and to the overall good.

  2. Always be studious and creative, striving to stay ahead of the times.

  3. Always be practical and avoid frivolousness.

  4. Always strive to build a homelike atmosphere at work that is warm and friendly.

  5. Always have respect for spiritual matters, and remember to be grateful at all times.

Sakichi Toyoda was a lifelong inventor and innovator, and we’re proud to continue his legacy—and make Raymond a great place to work—by adhering to the set of Precepts that bear his name.
