The Group has long employed and promoted people of multiple nationalities. As we promote the Group’s globalization, we will engage in the recruitment and development of diverse talents. In addition to promoting more women to the Board of Directors and to senior management positions such as executive officer and head of department, we will strive to implement various personnel and labor measures, including the creation of a working environment where diverse employees can be motivated and flourish in their jobs, workplace communication reforms, and human resources development.
Our indicators related to policies concerning human resources development and the working environment are as follows.
◆We will raise the ratio of female managers to 30% or higher.
We will conduct management training for women in leadership positions and career development training specifically for female employees rearing children.
◆We will raise the ratio of women recruited to 30% or higher.
While creating a comfortable working environment for women and making our programs for that purpose well known, we will encourage employees to take annual paid leave. As of April 2023, 100% of the female employees who took maternity and childcare leave have subsequently returned to work at the Company.
◆We will aim to have all eligible male employees take childcare leave.
We plan to endorse the “100% Childcare Leave Taken by Men Declaration” to strengthen our measures to encourage male employees to take childcare leave. We also aim to create a workplace environment that will allow male employees to be actively engaged in parenting, through such measures as holding “Bring Your Child to Work Days,” which will give family members the chance to see their fathers at work.
