Based on our corporate philosophy of "Forever vivid. Untether time," our Group has continued to focus on enriching everyday life and creating a new future where everyone can brighten at any time by providing “Unique value” never seen before to the world since our founding.
In order to continue to provide "Unique value" going forward, we believe that each employee's uniqueness, capability, and growth are essential above all. Furthermore, in an environment of intense change and competition, we position human resources as the source of value creation and competitive advantage.
The Group's basic philosophy is that employees’ attachment to their work and the company and their sense of fulfillment and satisfaction in their work leads to higher productivity, improved business performance and sustainable growth. Therefore, we position employee engagement as one of the important indicators in management and conduct regular engagement surveys for all employees. At each survey, management shares and discusses the situation and issues, reflects them in the action plan, and promotes specific initiatives.
We have introduced a training system and qualification support system with the aim of maximizing employee growth and organizational strength. We conduct group training programs in which employees learn the skills required according to their roles, as well as hand-up training programs that provide opportunities for employees who wish to grow on their own initiative.
The Group is committed to diversity and inclusion, aiming to create an organization where diverse people respect various values and play active roles.
The Group has 252 employees, of whom 59% are women. We have eight foreign nationals working for us and plan to hire more. We have also introduced a postretirement reemployment system to allow older employees to continue working as long as they are willing and able.
*Data is information as of the end of July 2023.
We received 3-Star Eruboshi certification for our initiatives promoting the active participation of women.
Eruboshi is a system that certifies companies for outstanding efforts to support women’s career development. It is administered by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare and based on the Act on Promotion of Women’s Participation and Advancement in the Workplace (the Women’s Advancement Promotion Law). In October 2021, we were first granted the three-star rating, the highest of the three levels of certification, as we had met all five criteria of (1) hiring, (2) continued employment, (3) work style including
working hours, (4) percentage of managerial positions held by women, and (5) diverse career paths.
The Company aims to be a leading company in anti-aging with the management philosophy "Untether time”. In order to realize this philosophy, it is essential that each employee leads a life in which they can feel physically and mentally healthy and happy. On August 17, 2022, we formulated our Health Management Declaration, based on the belief that an environment in which employees can work in good physical and mental health is important as a foundation that supports the creation of value for our employees. Based on the Health Management Declaration, we strive to promote well-being so that our employees and everyone involved with our company can lead healthy and prosperous lives. In the future, through the promotion of various measures based on the Health Management Declaration, we will create a social culture and a new common sense in which every individual can demonstrate their individuality and abilities.
