Positioning and Thoughts of HR Activities for Sustainability

In the rapidly changing business environment, globalization, the declining working population due to the declining birthrate and aging population, the progress of DX, and the transformation of new work systems, values, and business models due to the impact of the novel corona virus pandemic, we are promoting the construction of a human resources environment that contributes to building a sustainable society.

In addition to aiming to be a company that is an easy and rewarding place for employees to work, we are emphasizing respect for diversity, staffing with the right people in the right places, human resource development over the medium to long term, promotion of health and productivity management, and improvement of engagement through fair evaluation and comprehensive compensation policies.

Through these various personnel measures, we will maximize the performance of people and organizations and continue to provide a foundation for each individual to take on challenges with passion and pride, all of which aims at creating a society in which everyone's safety and security are ensured.

Human resources are our most important asset, and we believe that employee growth is the driving force behind the company's development. Based on the human resources issues broken down into 11 categories in the figure below, we respect diverse individuality that is rich in ideas and that will contribute to building a sustainable future.

Respect for Human Rights

Nowadays, as society's demand for human rights issues has increased, the enaction of rules and laws related to human rights continues to progress both inside and outside of Japan,We believe that protecting the human rights of all people affected by our business activities is one of the most important factors in strengthening our sustainable business foundation. We support and respect the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and are committed to respecting and working for the human rights of our employees and all stakeholders.

Diversity & Inclusion

Social Contribution Activities

Social Contribution Policy

We value contact and communication with people in each country and region.
As each employee voluntarily engages in social contribution activities as a member of the local community, this can lead not only to the development of the local community, but also to contribution to social issues. We hope that the awareness and fulfillment gained there will lead to improved motivation of the employees themselves in their life and work.

  • 1.Through our business, we will create a society where our company can coexist with the local region.
  • 2.We will cooperate with the local community and promote continuous activities that grasp their requests, expectations, and needs.
  • 3.We will raise employee awareness of volunteering and encourage and support community programs.
