Diversity & Inclusion
We aim to create a workplace environment in which individuals with a variety of backgrounds, including gender and nationality, can work in their own ways and fully demonstrate their individual abilities and strengths.
Increasing the ratio of female and foreign managers
In order to promote the active participation of women and foreigners, we have set targets for increasing the ratio of management positions in each of these groups and we strive to create a workplace environment that supports their active recruitment, development, and participation.

We reviewed the reemployment system that had been applied to employees aged 60 to 65 after retirement. We have introduced a compensation system based on their abilities, motivation, and achievements, in addition to experience. Employees aged 60 to 65 after retirement are positioned as "Meisters" and we aim to increase their motivation to work.
Senior Meister system
We have raised the age limit of reemployment after retirement from 65 years old, and we employ all employees up to 70 years old, depending on their wishes. Employees aged 65 or older are designated as “Senior Meisters” and we strive to make the most of their experience and abilities and to stabilize the lives of our employees.
Commitment to local hiring
As of the end of the fiscal year ended September 2022, all overseas subsidiaries were operated by locally hired employees, with the exception of several employees seconded from Japan. Focusing on the contribution to local communities, we will continue to promote the creation of employment through local hiring.
