Basic approach to diversity
Welcoming and making the most of diverse human resources
The Moriroku Group has been promoting diversity based on the belief that it will not be able to grow without the development of diverse employees. From that standpoint, the Group is working to offer leading-edge technological solutions and services not only in Japan but also to other countries, driven by its management principle of realizing forward-looking innovations and advanced technologies that create value for communities around the world.
Japan is currently undergoing major societal changes, including chronic labor shortages resulting from a shrinking labor force, the acceleration of globalization, greater participation of women in public life, and difficulties in providing nursing care amid an aging population. Against that backdrop, the Moriroku Group has been pushing ahead with its long-term management vision, Moriroku Innovation 400, in recognition of the need for the entire Moriroku Group to generate innovative solutions going forward. Accordingly, the Group is working to leverage its collective capabilities while welcoming the diversity of its members, which are comprised of men and women who differ in terms of age, nationality, physical ability, and value systems. Indeed, the Group understands that such diversity is essential for its management principle of realizing forward-looking innovations.
Starting from this approach, the Group has been actively promoting diversity as a means to foster workplace environments in which each employee can thrive and make the most of his or her capabilities and individuality. With senior management declaring its commitment to promoting diversity, the Group has been offering seminars on diversity to all employees, raising awareness of related issues, and cultivating a more open and accepting corporate culture. Moreover, a committee made up of diverse members has created a roadmap for advancing diversity and is leading efforts toward realizing it. As the Group aims to further globalize, all employees are working together to promote diversity in the years ahead.
