Resilience Program as an approach to top management

To develop people and organizations that are strong in the face of change in the lead-up to our third founding, we emphasized the ability to powerfully lead an organization in times of adversity (resilience), and implemented the Resilience Program for officers.By having officers set examples worth following, make habits of enhancing the four vital forces of physical , emotional, cognitive and spiritual strength and have them spread throughout the organization, we aim to have employees continue to work with vigor and happiness, and will continue to implement the program going forward.As of August 2023, all officers have attended the program.

Activities for ensuring appropriate working hours and having employees balance work and family life

  • To optimize working hours, we visualize working hours using the attendance management system.Employees and their supervisors monitor holidays and leave usage and the status of overtime work on a daily basis, while a Time Management Committee held between labor and management advances initiatives to improve working hours.
  • In 2018 and 2019, the SMART WORK CHALLENGE, a work-style reform campaign aimed at improving productivity was implemented companywide. By sharing the initiatives underway in each department across the company, we made improvements to workstyles companywide.
  • Each year we conduct "Life Questionnaires" through which employees report to the company matters that will need to be taken into account when working in the future (nursing care, etc.).The matters that will need to be taken into account when working in the future are shared between supervisors and employees, providing opportunities for them to consider future working styles together.

Activities to address women's health issues

  • Women constitute approx. 70% of all employees. We therefore take a range initiatives to resolve health issues that are specific to women, so that our female employees can continue to enjoy working with good health in response to life-stage changes.
  • We regularly hold a voluntary, interactive seminar, thus providing opportunities to think about maintaining and promoting good health independently.
  • [Seminar Results]

    • Seminars on diseases specific to women by a gynecologist held in 2021 and 2022 (total of two times)
    • Seminars on the use of midwife services held in FY2021 (total of three times)
    • Femtech seminars held between 2021 and 2023 (total of five times), with 296 attendees
  • We provide partial financial support for employees receiving fertilization treatment.

Cancer control

  • To have employees acquire accurate knowledge about cancer and encourage them to receive cancer screenings at an early stage, we provide them with information regularly via our intranet, internal social media, and other media.
  • We advocate the importance of cancer screening and early detection by taking measures, including talks given by employees who have survived cancer and the delivery of articles on interviews with such employees to the entire company. We also deliver a message that our employees do not give up but continue working even if they have cancer.
  • - In the consortium of companies in the corporate action for promoting cancer control, a project commissioned by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, from 2021, we have participated in the Kigyo Consortium 40 (Company Consortium 40) as a company working on cancer control enthusiastically and engaged in workplace cancer control through meetings and training sessions.

Measures against lifestyle-related diseases and smoking

  • We take thorough measures to ensure that all employees receive regular health checkups, aiming for employee health management and the early detection and prevention of diseases. The annual rate of employees who receive a health checkup has been 100%.We have also added test items for preventing lifestyle-related diseases to statutory items, thus enhancing the content of the health checkup.
  • We hold a walking campaign every year in cooperation with the health insurance union with the aim of maintaining and advancing people's health, reviewing exercise habits and improving lifestyle habits.
    (Number of participants: 320 in 2020, 720 in 2021, and 726 in 2022)
  • To reduce the risk of smoking, our health insurance union encourages employees who smoke to receive treatment to help them quit smoking, and subsidizes the costs of treatment.
  • To refresh and maintain the mind and body, we recommend that employees take wellness leave once every five years. We also encourage employees to take consecutive leave and receive a thorough physical examination. We subsidize the cost of a thorough physical examination.

Helping employees to continue working while receiving treatment

  • We have established the Self-Management Assistance Program to help employees who have taken a leave of absence due to physical or mental health issues to continue working independently after returning to work.The target and health condition of each such employee are checked in each phase, and their supervisor, industrial physician, public health nurse, and the Strategic Human Resources Dept. work together in supporting the employee during the leave of absence, when returning to work, and after they have returned to work.
  • We have established various systems that allow flexible work-styles to balance medical treatment with work, such as hourly paid leave, half-day paid leave, flex-time, staggered working hours, and telework.
