Health Management Strategy for Target Achievement (strategy map)

Promotion System

We have organized a Health Promotion Office consisting of representatives from the General Affairs and Human Resources Departments at each business site to implement health management in an appropriate manner. This office will coordinate with executives, department managers, insurers (Tokyo Kiki Health Insurance Society), and industrial physicians.
This office will also coordinate with the labor union to ensure that management and labor are unified in tackling a variety of health-related issues.

Specific Measures

In order to achieve our goals, we will categorize and implement each measure under ten categories.

Exercise

Hold walking challenge events (twice a year)

This measure is intended to instill a habit of regular exercise and prevent lifestyle-related diseases through moderate exercise.

Meals

Provide green salads and display calories for menu items at employee cafeterias

This measure is intended to improve employee dietary habits by offering health-conscious menu items and by displaying calories.

Smoking cessation

Provide financial assistance for smoking cessation outpatient treatment

This measure is intended to further improve employee health by fully supporting employees who are working to quit smoking.

Maintaining productivity levels

Promote naps during break times

This measure is intended to reduce employee stress levels and improve sleep indicators by encouraging employees to take short naps during break times.

Infectious diseases

Encourage and provide financial assistance for vaccinations to combat infectious diseases (seasonal influenza)

This effort is intended to increase vaccination rates and create environments in which employees can work with peace of mind by having the company cover the full cost of vaccinations.

Physical

Provide active follow-up on additional health exams for those found to have irregularities during regular health exams

This measure is intended to reduce employee presenteeism and absenteeism, and to encourage early detection and treatment of disease.
We will provide ongoing follow-up on the health of employees by having worksite line managers, in addition to industrial physicians and nurses, actively instruct those employees found to have irregularities during regular health exams to undergo additional exams.

Mental

Establish mental health consultation services led by industrial physicians

We have established mental health consultation services led by industrial physicians within the company.
These services will help prevent and treat mental illness among employees by offering them the opportunity to casually discuss work-related stress, family problems, and personal relationships, for example.

Long working hours

Invigorate 5S and small group activities

This measure is intended to further accelerate efforts to reduce unnecessary work and improve work efficiency, as well as to shorten working hours, by further invigorating in-house 5S activities and small group activities.
This measure also aims to create more leisure time for employees in order to help further improve work-life balance.

Female employees

Encourage women to undergo gynecologic exams and create workplace environments that accommodate female employees

This measure will encourage female employees to undergo regular gynecological exams, and will prepare break rooms within the company that are designed with use by women in mind so that female employees can rest at the company without worry when they are not feeling well.

Older employees

Re-inspect working environments to ensure they are age-friendly

This measure will regularly conduct workplace inspections in accordance with the Age-Friendly Guidelines as a means of maintaining workplace environments that enable older employees to work with peace of mind and satisfaction.

Communication

Periodically hold events within the company

This measure will periodically hold recreation events to increase the amount of communication between departments and between employees, as well as to improve employee satisfaction.
