Health and Productivity Management
We believe that the health of our employees underpins everything we do. For this reason, we promote health and productivity management, and our commitment to this practice is inscribed in our work rules.
Kenko Waku Waku Mileage Program for Improving employees’ health
We introduced the Kenko Waku Waku Mileage Program in April 2015 to help improve the health of employees in order to prevent illness and to better enable employees to work in a productive and creative manner. The program comprises a points system through which employees earn “mileage” points for the five good habits for maintaining or improving their health or based on the results of their annual health checkups. Based on the number of points accumulated over the course of one year, an employee may be awarded incentive payments.
Incentives are paid out for points earned on an individual basis and on an organizational basis. This encourages greater efforts through friendly competition among different organizations.
Measures and Facilities for Promoting Health and Productivity Management
We provide numerous opportunities for enhancing understanding about health improvement, including group health literacy trainings targeting general managers and other managers as well as health literacy e-learning programs for all employees.
Furthermore, we carry out health-related questionnaire surveys to track employee lifestyle habits and awareness levels. The results of these surveys are used in providing health-related guidance and are submitted to quantitative trend analyses so that this information can be utilized to formulate measures for improving employee lifestyles.
