Diversity Management

The Nisshinbo Group aims to create a working environment that enables employees with diverse values and capabilities to maximize their potential, leading to the realization of Innovation.

Act on the Promotion of Women’s Participation and Advancement in the Workplace General Employer Action Plan

The Act on the Promotion of Women’s Participation and Advancement in the Workplace went into effect in Japan in April 2016. This law prompted proactive activities to set specific targets for the number of female managers and the ratio of female graduate recruits, as well as achievement periods. Through these activities, two new female managers and one new senior manager were appointed at the Company in January 2017.

For fiscal 2017, we have introduced the additional topic of “working style reform: creating a working environment conducive to diverse human resources” and are pursuing a variety of related measures.
