Creating a Rewarding Workplace

Basic Policy

Our Basic Policy on Sustainability calls for creating a rewarding workplace where diverse employees can work with enthusiasm. The AMADA Group thinks that employees can be fulfilled at work in the environment where both the comfortable workplace and job satisfaction are comprehensively enhanced. To this end, we will strengthen the foundation on which each and every employee of the AMADA Group can work with peace of mind over the long term. Specifically, we will develop work styles that are appropriate to the environment and circumstances, and properly evaluate and treat work.

Initiatives for use of paid leave

Improving the paid leave acquisition rate has been an issue in the past for the AMADA Group. To address this issue in earnest, we conducted a survey on employee attitudes toward paid leave. This survey revealed that employees feel that use of paid leave is beneficial, but that it is still difficult to actually take leave. To help alleviate this difficulty, we established a paid leave promotion month within each department. We encourage employees to selectively prioritize their work to ensure that they take paid vacations during these promotion months.

Initiatives to Support Balancing Work and Childcare

In the support for the development of the next generation, we are implementing a range of initiatives to help both men and women balance work and childcare. To encourage male employees to take childcare leave, we have taken a number of measures to help facilitate smooth organizational operation. These include informing eligible employees individually about the childcare leave program, and using training sessions to encourage managers to become “Iku-Bosses,” or those who support employees’ childcare needs, and to provide specific examples on how to hand off employee work. In addition, we have increased the number of questions on male childcare leave in our employee awareness survey and shared the answers to these questions to foster a culture that is more inclusive of this kind of leave.
