Chiyoda Group highly respects the diversity and individuality of employees and their personalities. We are making efforts to create a supportive environment, provide assistance and change the employees’ mentality to help them make the most of their potential in the workplace regardless of gender, nationality, age or religion.
As part of the efforts to promote diversity, Chiyoda is engaged in two major activities. One of them is a task team aimed at changing the employees’ mentality about female participation in the workplace. The task team, formed in 2014, gathers and exchanges information and organizes lectures by outside lecturers. The team is seeking to build a corporate culture and a system that enable women to fulfill their potential without depending much on their own efforts, supervisors’ decisions, the working environment or the atmosphere. The team provides not only female but also male employees with a chance to review their ways of working in the light of development and advancement of women in the workplace.
