Dialogue with Employees
We regularly conduct employee awareness surveys to ensure that our organizational operations reflect the voices of our employees, with the goal of creating a better working environment.
Twice a year, we hold a Business Status Briefing for all employees at each business site to explain our financial results and problems to be faced. Workers’ unions also promote mutual understanding of business operations and union activities through the Labor Council, top-level meetings, and workshop meetings.
As a place for direct communication with the President, we have been holding what we call Town Meetings roughly once per month, targeting Line Section Heads as well as those of the Department Manager class. With a system of groups with a small number of people, we have improved interactivity and are continually implementing this system as a place for dialogue with employees and sharing tasks.
In 2020, the global spread of COVID-19 forced domestic and overseas Group companies to restrict their business activities. For employees both in Japan and abroad, we distributed the President’s message by video over the Internet, to alleviate the uneasiness of employees, and called on all employees to work together to overcome this difficulty.
