The Honda Way – Supplier Orientation

Welcome to Honda!

Honda requires that you watch each of these orientation videos. These videos are meant to bring awareness to various requirements and expectations. Additionally, it is your responsibility to thoroughly read and understand all of our manuals and requirements.

If you have any questions, please ask your Honda representative and we will be happy to clarify. Please think about who in your organization would be most appropriate to watch the various videos. For example, you would want to have your quality manager and quality engineers watch the quality-focused videos.
