Housing Company InitiativesContributions to Local Communities by Factories, Including Tours for Social Studies Classes
Kyushu Sekisui Heim Industry Co., Ltd., located in Saga Prefecture, aims to help bring joy to its customers and regularly conducts activities rooted in the local community to that end.
In recent years, the numbers of people choosing to find employment within Saga Prefecture have been low, and companies in the prefecture face an ever-worsening situation in terms of labor shortages and difficulties securing talent. This has become an issue to resolve if the region is to be revitalized. In response to these issues in the region, the Company has partnered with government and has been accepting students, primarily in elementary and middle school, for programs in which they tour factories as part of a series social studies field trips with the aim of conveying to the local community what manufacturing companies there are locally and the joys of manufacturing. The company had conducted factory tours previously, with around 200 factory visitors in fiscal year 2015. With the subsequent considerable expansion of the number of visitors allowed to tour the factory, this number rose to around 1,750 in fiscal year 2017.
The company will continue to increase its collaboration with the local community so as to make its contribution to it.
