Strengthening Communication with Employees
We take measures to address the opinions of employees with the aim of creating even better work environments.
Personnel Interviews for All Employees
In order to improve labor and workplace environments and create a company where employees want to work for their entire careers, Takara Leben conducts personnel interviews of all employees. The aims are to gather information on how to reduce overtime work, investigate improvement measures by gaining an understanding of employee career plans, and build relationships that encourage employees to discuss issues.
Expansion of Takara Note
Takara Leben operates Takara Note, an in-house website, shares information, and works to invigorate communications to maximize Takara Leben Group synergies. The Group Plaza section of Takara Note uses a bulletin board function, photo album function, and question and answer function to obtain the latest information from each company and support higher work efficiency. In fiscal 2020, we added a function to provide notice of important and recent news via email with the aim of creating a website that contributes to Group management.
Exciting Family Day
Takara Leben holds various events for the families of employees to express our gratitude for the support they offer our employees every day and to provide them with a better understanding of the company. The “Exciting Family Day” event held in our head office in August 2019 was attended by 84 people from 24 families. At this fun summer event, they enjoyed a program including festival stalls, a picture frame-building workshop, business card exchanges, and more.
Shimanto River Swimming Marathon and Matsuyama Ojoka Relay Marathon 2019
The Takara Leben Group collaborates in regional revitalization and creates opportunities for interaction between employees by participating in regional sports events. Employees of Takara Leben West Japan took part in the Shimanto River Swimming Marathon, held on July 28, 2019. In this marathon, competitors swim down the Shimanto River, Japan’s last clear stream, immersing themselves in nature and considering the importance of nature conservation. In the Matsuyama Ojoka Relay Marathon 2019, held on October 12 and 13, 2019, competitors ran a relay race with colleagues through a circuit in the central part of Ehime Prefecture’s Matsuyama City. The team of executives and employees ran 42.195 km, the length of a full marathon.
The Takara Leben Group has held a Sports Festival at the Saitama Super Arena since 2018. The event encourages interaction among employees from different workplaces and Group companies through competitions such as an obstacle course, relay race, and tug of war.
The second Sports Festival, held on October 24, 2019, included new competitions, such as group rope jump and dodge ball, as well as non-competitive events including physical fitness tests, a science experiment show for children, and various other new programs. Many employees and their families enjoyed a fun-filled day.
