Mandom Group's CSR KohDoh Practices
Diversity and Inclusion
In Mandom Group, Active Employee Participation constitutes part of Our Value and "KohDoh" for Self-actualization is defined as one of Our Principles. Based on these concepts, Mandom considers our employees corporate assets regardless of gender that are vital to our business, and strive continuously to create safe, clean workplaces that give employees the freedom to express themselves.
In April 2015 Mandom established Diversity Promotion Office and we are trying to build an organizational system that embodies diversity and inclusion in order to retain workers of diverse attributes and value systems, and enable them to reach their full potential.
Action plan for promoting women's participation and work-life balance
In April 2016, a Japanese law took effect, which obliges large companies and local and central governments to set numerical targets for hiring and promoting women. Mandom understands that promotion of women is an important theme that draws expectations and demands from a broad range of players in the society. Accordingly, this theme has been reflected in one of the CSR Material Issues for the Mandom Group - "Achieving employee satisfaction (ES) and diversity." In line with the objectives and purposes of the law, Mandom will develop and execute a phased action plan to help realize a society where women are promoted and encouraged to exercise their individuality and unleash their full potential. We will also disclose our actions and keep the information up to date through the official website of Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare below.
Mandom's efforts also include establishing an employment environment allowing employees to balance work and child-rearing based on the Act on Advancement of Measures to Support Raising Next-Generation Children, and establishing diverse working conditions inclusive of employees who are not raising children. For details, see the page on our Decent Work and Work-Life Balance initiatives.
Please check the following sites operated by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare for information on general employer action plans based on the Act on Promotion of Women's Participation and Advancement in the Workplace, and general employer action plans based on the Act on Advancement of Measures to Support Raising Next-Generation Children.
Creating an environment enabling participation by diverse human resources, including people with disabilities
We aim to build an organization that encourages diversity and inclusion. As part of this, we are creating workplace environments that allow us to hire more people with disabilities and facilitate their participation. Please see below for the details.
Regarding our Special Subsidiary, Mandom Will Corp.
In August 2018, we established the Mandom Will Corp. (referred to below as "Mandom Will") with the aim of utilizing diverse human resources and expanding employment, and on December 17, 2018, the company acquired certification as a Special Subsidiary, as set forth in the Act on Employment Promotion etc. of Persons with Disabilities.
At Mandom Will, we have put in place an environment and programs tailored to suit diversity, so that people with disabilities and those returning to employment can work with high motivation over the long term without undue stress. Steps taken in this area include allocating work to match diverse capabilities and characteristics, and enabling the taking of annual paid holiday in hourly units to deal with issues such as going to the hospital. We are also working to develop human resources capable of self-growth through work.
The Mandom Group is promoting diversity and inclusion to ensure acceptance of diversity, enable individuals to perform at their peak ability, and achieve growth of both the company and our employees. Going forward, we will continue efforts to cultivate human resources and develop an environment/programs to realize a company where all employees are valued assets who can derive satisfaction from their work.
