Creating Accommodating Workplaces
We have a system to enable motivated employees to play an active role over the long term and combine work with childbirth, childrearing, and caring for elderly relatives. We are working to encourage employees to make use of this system.
We are creating a framework within which each employee’s individuality can be respected and a diverse range of personnel can flourish. This framework will reinforce our financial products and services developed from the customer’s perspective. We are creating an environment that is accommodating for employees regardless of gender, age or nationality.
Promoting Work-Life Balance
We conduct an annual morale survey of employees in Japan and overseas in order to create more accommodating workplaces, and revise the system using feedback from employees. In addition, we have a system for employees to take consecutive holidays and encourage employees to use their paid leave. We also promote the creation of an environment that enables employees to easily take leave for childcare and leave for caring for elderly relatives, regardless of their gender.
Our subsidiaries in Japan are proactively undertaking initiatives to obtain “Eruboshi” (L Star) marks*, which are certified by the Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare.
We believe that a workplace environment where each employee can work with high aspirations and realize self-development is important. We promote self-development and offer open-ended training so that all employees can plot their own careers.
We have established an in-house university and offer various courses to help managers and specialists excel. We also offer overseas visit seminars and joint training sessions among senior executives from Japan and overseas. In addition, we provide knowledge of our operations through workplace education. Managers and senior employees actively impart knowledge at all workplaces to nurture professionals with wide-ranging knowledge of the Group’s operations. This leads to professionals who can propose financial services that meet customer needs. The core of our personnel development is self-motivated learning. All employees are treated equally in matters including hiring, promotion and pay increases regardless of gender, nationality or disabilities.
