The FPCO Group will create a safe, worker-friendly working environment that respects human rights and personality in accordance with the policy set out below.
Basic Human Resources Policy
We believe that fulfilling the role of fully harnessing the individual skills and qualities of each and every Group employee and developing an environment in which employees can work with satisfaction, fulfillment and vigor is one of the management challenges linked with improved corporate value.
We will respect the fundamental human rights of everyone in all aspects of our corporate activities, including recruitment, and we will not discriminate against anyone or harm anyone’s personal dignity on the basis of nationality, race, faith, gender, disabilities, social status or other aspects.
Helping Employees Achieve a Healthy Work-life Balance
FP Corporation has proactively considered the distribution of working hours through initiatives such as curbing long overtime hours by having employees concentrate on working during busy times of day to improve work productivity, introducing a flex-time system, allowing employees to utilize sliding start and finish times, requiring employees to take paid leave of five consecutive days (Smile Leave), and instituting no-overtime days. These policies are part of workstyle reform efforts designed to optimize employees’ working hours.
Operation of a Re-hiring Scheme for Senior Human Resources
Since April 2006, FP Corporation has operated a re-hiring scheme for employees subject to mandatory retirement at age 60 who wish to be re-employed. In FY2017, 100% (FP Corporation results) of mandatory retirees took advantage of the scheme.
Measures to Harassment Prevention
We carry out harassment prevention training by giving lectures based on examples and precedents and watching DVDs for all managers of the FPCO Group, and we are promoting the creation of a pleasant working environment.
Promoting Female Empowerment
On the Positive Action Information Portal Site operated by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, FP Corporation has posted a “Declaration on the Promotion of Female Empowerment” outlining initiatives designed to expand the working fields of female employees, support their continued employment and increase the number of female managers.
Aiming for a female career track hiring rate of at least 20%, we are working towards the goal of 50 female managers by the year 2022.
Certified as a parenting-friendly company by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare.
Support for balancing work and family
Most of FP Corporation’s female employees stay employed after marriage, and almost all those entitled to childcare leave take it.
With regard to working hours, 8 patterns of staggered working hours are available, and all applicants are allowed to work for a short time before their children enter elementary school.
We are committed to creating a workplace in which women can flourish as a company offering a pleasant workplace for female employees even if they are married or have children.
We offer financial support for recreational activities conducted by employees for enjoyment, such as baseball, yachting, tennis and floor hockey.
Non-sporting activities and welcome parties are also entitled to our financial support. We also provide a welfare program that allows employees to enjoy lodging facilities and amusement facilities nationwide at reduced rates in a bid to help them enjoy spending time with friends and family members.
