Efforts to Employ of People with DisabilitiesConducting brainstorming sessions on employment of people with disabilities

As part of its diversity management efforts to enable each and every employee to display his or her distinctive capabilities, the Company works to employ people with disabilities across the entire Group.
As a new initiative in fiscal 2016, we conducted brainstorming sessions for people with disabilities on a joint Group basis. Through case studies and other methods, we gained a better understanding of the knowledge required with regard to the employment of people with disabilities and drafted employment plans.

Initiatives for Every EmployeeCareer plan training

Building a foundation for each employee, the Company is conducting career plan training especially for employees entering their second year of employment as well as employees about to reach the ages of 30, 40, and 50. This aim is to provide these employees with the opportunity to consider balanced work and lifestyles, affirm their unique characteristics, and formulate future careers for themselves.

Promote Active Participation of SeniorsEnhance initiatives aimed at enabling active roles for employees aged 65

In fiscal 1993, Sekisui Chemical introduced a reemployment system for employees who had reached mandatory retirement age. Since fiscal 2006 this program has been expanded to Group companies as well. A new program of training for employees aged 57 was introduced as an opportunity to think about their careers after retirement. This was the start of a new effort to enable motivated employees to remain in active employment through age 65. In October 2015, Sekisui Chemical revised its Senior Expert System, a system for reemploying elderly retirees in order to foster greater employee motivation.

We have finished putting in place systems for employees to continue working through the age of 65 at all Group companies, ensuring that 100% of the employees that elect to do so can remain employed or be reemployed.
