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.
Zero Tolerance for Sexual and Power Harassment
The Shindengen Group has a zero-tolerance policy towards sexual harassment and/or power harassment. Group Action Guidelines are in place to effectively manage any instances of such harassment.
Human Rights Awareness Initiatives
In an effort to address the serious poverty and labor problems in the world, the Shindengen Group engages in raising awareness about social issues and increasing respect for human rights through CSR training courses and similar initiatives. In addition to promoting CSR activity-related concepts such as employment practices, taxation, and community service etc., enhancing employees’ appreciation of international standards (ILO core labor standards, etc.) and consideration for minorities, including LGBT individuals, is part of our commitment. Employees are advised of points regarding human rights as indicated in the UN’s SDGs, and we strive to continuously share details about human rights issues using information dissemination tools, such as our intranet and company newsletters.
