Labor Union Relations
Shindengen and the Group (domestic) actively ensure there is a forum available for discussion between Labor Unions, Shindengen employees and Management. We strive to provide our employees with a positive, safe workplace, through regularly holding meetings with labor management councils, in efforts to achieve mutually beneficial results. Shindengen has signed a collective agreement with the Labor Union to guarantee the rights of all members.
The Shindengen Group (domestic) has established a consultation window where employees and their families can receive specialist counselor advice for daily anxiety, stress and other troubles.
Mental health education workshops are also provided to all employees. Since FY2016, annual stress checks (under the Occupational Health and Safety Act) have been performed and reported to the Labor Standards Inspection Office to identify, manage and ultimately reduce the risk of mental health problems of our employees.
