With regard to the Key Sustainability Issues of becoming a company with a pleasant and rewarding workplace, we have established four underlying themes： work–life balance, diversity, health and productivity management, and human resource development. With a focus on spreading these themes into the overall IT industry, we are engaged in various initiatives.
To promote good work–life balance, SCSK is endeavoring to help employees balance their work life and their private life and is creating a workplace in which employees can work without any feelings of anxiety or concern. To this end, the Company provides flexible working systems and has introduced various leave and vacation systems.
As part of our efforts to promote diversity, we aim to develop a workplace environment in which all employees can fully exercise their skills and aptitudes. Specifically, we are focused on supporting women’s career advancement, employing people with disabilities and assisting their activities, and hiring non-Japanese employees.
In terms of health and productivity management, a member of senior management was appointed as the chief health officer. We have also established dedicated organizations and are putting other systems in place. At the same time, we are implementing Companywide measures to help employees better manage their physical and mental health and become healthier.
To facilitate human resource development, we establish the expected profiles of SCSK employees and formulate training and education programs to foster human resources that can embody such profiles. We also support employee growth by implementing systems that enable employees to take an active and autonomous approach toward developing their careers.
Furthermore, the directives for our approach with regard to each theme have been clarified by means of the establishment of Companywide policies, targets, and visions. Understanding regarding these initiatives is being entrenched throughout the Company via employee training and education programs. In addition, quantitative indicators have been defined for tracking the progress of particularly important measures so that we can pursue ongoing improvements.
