Creating a Rewarding Workplace

Basic Approach Towards Creating a Rewarding Workplace
We are striving to create a workplace where employees with a diverse background can work in a healthy and rewarding way and can work to their full potential. We also seek to provide an environment in which employees can grow while working hard together with respect for all. To achieve this, we are working on a range of different initiatives.
Promoting Diverse Human Resources
To create a culture that promotes diversity, we educate all our employees through group-based and web-based seminars, and e-learning programs on the many different forms of harassment, such as sexual harassment and bullying.
Moreover, to give the older workforce more opportunity to play a greater role, we abolished the executive retirement age system in fiscal 2020.
Promoting Work-Life Balance
We are improving our benefit plans to enable employees to find the right balance for their own individual life needs balancing work and family, be it childcare, nursing care, or medical treatment.

  • ● System for taking annual paid leave in hourly increments (from April 2020)
  • ● System for accruing annual paid leave not used

  • ● Flextime system (abolition of core time from April 2021)
  • ● Shortened working hours system (for employees raising children up to the third grade of elementary school and caring for family members)
  • ● Telework working system

Human Resources Education & Training
To contribute to a sustainable society, we endeavor to find human resources who “enjoy change and continue to take on challenges”, and “have the mindset to compete on a global stage. To develop human resources such as these, we have in place an educational environment for every level of the organization from new recruits through to possible future executives. We have also established a self-development system that gives motivated employees the opportunity to develop their abilities through free e-learning programs and correspondence courses as well as TOEIC test support.
