Environment and structure that enables diverse human resources to play active roles

Respect for human rights

We believe that respect for human rights is an indispensable foundation of corporate management in order to conduct corporate activities while building good relationships with all stakeholders. To this end, we raise awareness of human rights, and we prohibit all forms of irrational discrimination based on birth, nationality, race, ethnicity, creed, religion, gender, age, body, hobbies and academic background by stating respect for human rights in our "Risk Management and Compliance Action Guidelines," "Rules on the Prevention of Harassment" and "Employment Regulations". We prohibit all discrimination based on birth, nationality, race, ethnicity, creed, religion, sex, age, body, hobbies and academic background.

In addition, the "Risk Management and Compliance Action Guidelines" clearly state that we will never tolerate human rights violations through violence, abusive language, slander, slander, coercion, bullying or harassment. In addition, we have established "Regulations Concerning Prevention of Harassment" to inform all directors and employees of our policy and prevention management system that does not tolerate sexual harassment, maternity harassment and power harassment.

Promotion of women's activities and inclusion of diverse work styles

While the roads, rivers and other social infrastructure in which we are involved are used equally by all people regardless of gender or other factors, our business activities, belonging to the manufacturing and construction industry, have histocally been led by men. With the increasing importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace, as well as the importance of raising awareness of the need to provide products and services from the user's perspective, we are working to create a gender-neutral work environment.

KPI FY2030 target FY2022 actual
Ratio of female managers 3.5% 1.2%
Percentage of male employees taking childcare leave 100% 88.9%
Turnover rate within 1 year after leave 0% 11.1%

To build foundation for innovation

In order to respond to changes in the market environment and needs, and to promote future growth, we believe it is important to work on fostering a corporate culture that prevents organizational rigidity and creates an environment in which young employees can demonstrate their abilities.

In FY2022, we conducted a junior board development training program with the aim of developing human resources who can organically manage the organization from a manager's perspective with a bird's eye view of business activities. We will use this experience to enhance our human resource attraction and retention measures, create a more open workplace, and develop the future management personnel class. We will also provide a wide range of external training opportunities for young employees and managers to create an environment that facilitates access to outside knowledge and human networks, thereby creating a climate conducive to innovation creation.

Safe, secure and healthy workplace

Occupational Health and Environmental Management ISO45001

We obtained ISO 45001 certification in February 2022. ISO45001 is a global standardization certified by ISO (International Organization for Standardization) for management specializing in occupational health and safety, and its purpose is to prevent worker injuries and illnesses and provide a safe and healthy workplace. We expect to prevent and reduce accidents during maintenance and other operations of our products through the implementation of ISO 45001.

In addition, in order to contribute to the further development of society, it is important to improve job satisfaction by expanding the working environment and promoting work style reforms. We are committed to creating a safe and secure working environment and to contributing to the enhancement of everyone's vitality so that each and every one of us can work safely, healthily, and vigorously and lead fulfilling lives.

Case Study 1 - Risk assessment
Risk assessment is a method for identifying potential hazards and harmfulness in the workplace and eliminating or reducing them. Even in workplaces where no accidents have occurred to date, potential hazards and harmfulness exist, and if left unchecked, could one day result in an industrial accident. With the objective of maintaining and improving occupational health and safety in all of our workplaces, we have introduced and are practicing risk assessment.

Case Study 2 - Workshop
We conduct health and safety workshops for our employees on an irregular basis. The mental and physical health of all of our employees is of utmost importance to us, and through these study sessions we educate our employees on the importance of mental health care and health checkups.

Healthy Company Declaration

We recognize that improving the employees’ lifestyle and health is important to improve our productivity and realize our sustainable growth. Therefore, we create the working environment that supports the employees to work lively and actively from both physical and mental aspects.
