Support for the Development of the Next Generation and Promoting Active Participation of Women in the Workplace

In order for individuality and talents of each individual to be fully demonstrated toward the achievement of the Diversity Vision, we believe that a corporate culture that respects and accepts all kinds of diversity and the realization of work-life balance are indispensable.

With regard to the promotion of women, by setting the target of 30% or more for the ratio of females among new graduates in the regular position and by working to expand the job categories in each department within the company, the ratio of females in the regular position increased to 11% in April 2022.

At present, we aim the penetration of diverse work styles according to individuality and life stage of each individual, with the new targets of increasing the ratio of females in the regular position to 13% or more, doubling the number of female managers, and encouraging male employees to take childcare leave.

Activities for Recruiting Foreign Nationalities

As one of the measures to develop globally competitive human resources and to promote the activities of diverse human resources, we are strengthening recruitment activities for foreign nationalities. We have been proactively working on this issue since 2017, and since then, foreign nationalities have joined the Company continuously. Moving forward, we will continue to promote diversification of our human resources through the continuous dispatch of information for foreign nationalities and create an organization that will allow diverse human resources to demonstrate their capabilities.

Employment of People with Disabilities

For more than ten years, we have kept the ratio of employees with disabilities at a level above the statutory minimum rate. We will continue to observe the legal requirements and remain proactive in providing workplaces that enable the active participation of people with disabilities.

TOPICS : Creating Employment Opportunities of People with Disabilities on the Farm

In 2020, we opened a company-owned "Yume Farm" near the Sodegaura Plant using a rental farm. We also started the similar initiative near the Nagoya Plant in 2021.

Through employing people with disabilities as staff on this farm, we will contribute to the financial independence of people with disabilities and deepen our employees' understanding of people with disabilities. We also aim to contribute to the local community by cultivating vegetables and fruits in cooperation with farm staff with disabilities and donating harvests to nearby welfare facilities.
