Creating Workplace Environments that Facilitate Work
Takara Leben works to create workplaces where employees can demonstrate their enthusiasm and full capabilities.
Respect for Human Rights
The Takara Leben Group acts with respect for the fundamental human rights of all stakeholders including employees while observing laws and regulations, social ethical norms, and matters specified in ethical rules.
Introduction of a Telework System
From April 2019, Takara Leben introduced a telework system, supporting more diverse employee work styles. Employees who meet specific conditions, such as conditions related to the contents of their work, or employees who have given birth, are parenting, or who provide nursing care, can work remotely, without coming to the office, up to three times a week, after implementing information leakage countermeasures and other measures. We plan to further promote this telework system with the aims of becoming an even more alluring company with flexible work styles that are not fixated on specific locations or times and contributing to our business continuity planning (BCP).
We take measures to promote diversity with the aim of becoming a business group where diverse human resources can thrive regardless of gender, age, nationality, or disability. Leben Village, a farm located in Chiba City, Chiba Prefecture, employs three persons with disability and one manager and produces a variety of vegetables. In addition to creating an environment where persons with disabilities can gain long-term employment with reassurance, the vegetables that they produce at the garden are distributed to Takara Leben employees who request them.
Promotion of 5S Activities
Takara Leben has long had twice-monthly “cleaning times” for cleaning and organizing offices in an effort to create environments where employees can work comfortably.
In December 2020, in conjunction with periodic internal patrols to check for problem areas from the perspectives of safety, health, and the 5Ss,* we held 5S Promotion Week to raise employee awareness regarding the 5Ss at the Head Office. As a result of this initiative, we made improvements to conditions such as information about COVID-19 countermeasures being difficult to understand and placement of unnecessary items that obstruct pathways.
* The 5Ss refers to seiri (sort), seiton (set in order), seiso (shine), seiketsu (standardize), and shitsuke (sustain).
