Fundamental Policy on Human Resources

Fundamental Policy on Human Resources

The Nichirei Group believes that its employees are a precious resource, and refers to them as human assets rather than human resources. Each Group company promotes efforts adapted for its individual businesses, but the Group has also established the Group-wide Group Human Assets Committee and Diversity Promotion Conference and shares information about and confirms the progress with each company’s measures to improve job satisfaction. Each Group company is working to create a workplace full of vitality, based on the Group’s fundamental policies.

Corporate Philosophy: Start by Focusing on Employees
(1) Provision of opportunities for the development and manifestation of skills.
(2) Implementation of a reward system based on ability, effort, and results.
(3) Creation of a workplace environment that is safe and well-ventilated.
(4) Prevention of discrimination based on gender, age, education, race, or religion, and the provision of equal opportunity.
Fundamental Policies for Workplace Improvement
Employee-focused Workplace Environment
Based on our fundamental principle that improvement in customer satisfaction (CS) and employee satisfaction (ES) are the two pillars that support the company, we maintain a workplace environment where all employees in the Nichirei Group can take pride in their work and workplace; work with ambition through a relationship with superiors based on trust; and fully exercise their abilities.
Promotion of Diversity
We promote diversity first, by acknowledging different attributes, such as gender, age, and nationality, as well as values. Second, we promote it by changing simple tolerance of new ideas and values that differ from conventional ones into a force driving the company's evolution to acquire a work force (human assets), improve the job and life goals of employees, and create new concepts and values.
The Nichirei Group Workplace Improvement Policy
In an effort to increase job satisfaction and create workplaces that reflect the Nichirei Corporate Philosophy and Nichirei, the Group has adopted a Nichirei Group Workplace Improvement Policy, and hopes to achieve the policy objectives by FY2022. By facilitating workplace improvements that suit the special characteristics of each of its businesses, the Nichirei Group aims to incorporate and draw on diverse values and ideas, make its organizations more dynamic, and raising productivity.
Enable Diverse Working Styles Provide working condition options Employees shall have a certain degree of freedom to choose their workplace and working hours, to suit personal circumstances. Systems to maintain these conditions are to be put in place.
Set up systems to prevent disruption of employee careers Systems are to be established to prevent employees’ careers from being disrupted or ended because of such circumstances as childbirth, childcare, nursing care, poor health, relocation of a spouse, or disease.
Prevent excessive working hours Through collaborative labor and management initiatives for workplace improvement, working hours shall be limited to levels that allow each employee to demonstrate their ability and perform satisfying work in good health.
Ensure Equal Opportunity Promote the advancement of female employees Female employees shall be given the same opportunities as their male peers, and offered necessary training in recognition of their value to the Nichirei Group.
Provide stimulating employment opportunities for people with disabilities Job positions and employment opportunities for people with disabilities shall be created to allow them to earn a living through stimulating work, with a vision to ultimately eliminate the distinction between people with or without disabilities in society.
Create employment opportunities for older people As people live longer, healthy lives, opportunities shall be created to allow older people to play an active role in the workplace by drawing on their particular skills bearing in mind individual working styles and values.
