VISION / VALUE
Making triggers for change available to all kinds of people, discovering abilities that the individuals themselves have not noticed, and providing opportunities for growth.
We regard the various people who work in the Group to be the source of our value creation, and we believe that their growth as individuals will lead to the growth of the Group.
For that reason we provide extensive educational opportunities that are tailored to the abilities and roles of the individual.Through these educational opportunities, individuals raise their skill level and enhance their potential for personal transformation, which provides them with a trigger for moving to a new stage of participation, as well as opportunities for further growth.
We aim to achieve a society in which everybody can participate, irrespective of gender.
We believe that in order for us to achieve sustainable growth, it is essential that we leverage the participation of diverse human resources, rather than allowing our thinking to be dominated by a homogeneous perspective.
In addition to designating the proportion of female employees and females in management positions and other important metrics, we promote the building of LGBT-friendly environments and systems, and seek to achieve a society in which opportunities for participation are not dependent on gender. We are also incorporating diverse perspectives into our decision-making bodies, broadening the areas in which people with diverse characteristics can participate, and creating new services.
By believing in the potential of all our people, increasing opportunities for work and diverse working styles, we facilitate job satisfaction.
We seek to transform the world into one in which people who were previously restricted by their working hours and work location can choose from a variety of working styles to work the way they want.
Not only will we create employment opportunities by increasing the diversity of working styles but we will also facilitate job satisfaction by enabling people to choose a working style that fits their lifestyle and life stage.
We will provide support and opportunities for equal participation by all, irrespective of age, nationality, disabilities or other characteristics.
In order to create new opportunities without allowing ourselves to be restricted by our current area of business, we believe it is important to accept a variety of viewpoints and values.
For that reason, by supporting participation irrespective of age, nationality, disabilities, or other characteristics in order to eliminate inequality, we facilitate the personal development of all kinds of people.
Working with all kinds of partners,
we will bring positive change to the world.
It would not be feasible for us to tackle all of our goals on our own, and so cooperation with partners is essential.In order to explore resolutions not only of our own “materiality” issues but also of various social issues, we will cooperate with partners to bring positive change to the world.
Based on the SDG Compass developed by the GRI, United Nations Global Compact and World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), we identified the materiality issues related to the Group.
Using matrices to organize SDGs and businesses
An inventory of the business activities of the Group was taken, identifying approximately 500 initiatives related to SDGs.These were organized into the 17 goals and 169 targets of the SDGs.
Value chain mapping
While consulting various guidelines, we extracted risks and opportunities in the value chain for the business activities of the Group, created a mapping using the metrics of “likelihood of occurrence × severity” and “societal benefits × economic benefits,” and identified the initiatives that the Group should prioritize.
Interviews with stakeholders
For the priority issues identified during the value chain mapping of Step 2, interviews with stakeholders such as employees, temporary staff, clients and shareholders were held using survey questionnaires.
Identifying value to society
Referring to the Group’s “Mission, Vision and Value” and the outcomes of the interviews with stakeholders, we clarified the value provided to stakeholders and identified the value provided to society by the Group.
Identifying “materiality” issues
Based on Steps 1 to 4, “materiality” issues for the Group were identified from among the 17 goals of the SDGs.
For the identified “materiality” issues, we also expressed the worldview that we wish to achieve for each goal in relation to the value to society and the Group’s “Mission, Vision and Value.”
