Diversity & Inclusion

Development of Workplaces where Diverse Personnel can Flourish

In pursuit of sustainable business growth, we are committed to recruiting and promoting a diverse workforce. We are actively hiring mid-career workers, focusing on individuals with advanced skills and knowledge in launching new businesses, as well as those with experience in various industries.
For the promotion of women into management positions and their career development, we are regularly conducting training targeted at female employees in their 20s to 40s. Participants have commented, “It provided an opportunity to think about my future careers,” and “Listening to the opinions of female employees with various job histories and ages was helpful for considering my own work styles.” The ratio of female managers during the fiscal year under review reached 15.1%.

Second career system

In 2006, we started the Second Career System, in which employees can keep working like before re-employment thanks to the re-employment of all applicants, the change of duties during a contract period, performance-linked bonuses, etc. Two years prior to the retirement age, the HR and General Affairs Group gives explanations about this system and individual consultation services to employees.
