Material Issue 4:Value Employees and Pursue Their Happiness and Job Satisfaction

Basic Approach and Policy

The employment and work environment is rapidly changing, including the falling birthrate and the aging population, which has resulted in a declining workforce, the increase in the number of double- income households and employees with family members requiring nursing care, and stricter labor laws. Additionally, we, as a global company, need to consider the differences in employment practices and labor laws of different countries and regions. We will strengthen efforts to address important issues in Japan, such as the promotion of the active participation of women, childcare support, and health and productivity management, and important issue overseas, cultivating and retaining next-generation leaders, and we will create an environment where all employees have job satisfaction and enjoy working.
