Diversity & Inclusion Promosion

Diversity & Inclusion Promosion

Basic Approach

Although we have taken continuing actions toward arranging better working conditions for women and promoting employee work-life balance since the 2005 fiscal year, we are also proceeding with a wide range of other measures to accelerate the creation of working environments which can allow our diverse human resources to be fully active. These measures include the establishment of a Diversity Promotion Office in April 2014, activities to enhance the awareness of diversity and inclusion, measures to promote the activity of women, and advancement of autonomous work-life management by employees.

Human Resource Management Policy

Continually developing human resources who are truly capable of embodying our group philosophy is the key principle behind how we manage human resources.
