Transformation to a Vibrant Company

To become “an excellent and vibrant company where employees thrive on challenges,” we aim to foster an organizational culture in which each individual plays a leading role and can take on a variety of challenges.

Our Vision of a Vibrant Company

We believe that a vibrant company is one in which each and every individual takes on a leading role and is able to take on a variety of challenges, achieving an energetic corporate culture which makes employees want to stretch and push themselves.

To become a vibrant company, we aim to create virtuous circle in which all employees have a shared vision, contribute to solving social issues through their work to create a successful track record, and this sense of accomplishment and growth further motivates them to take on the challenge of playing a leading role in realizing this vision.

Message to Employees from the President

Our president has released a message to all employees expressing his hope to achieve a vibrant company.

Based on this desire, we are implementing and expanding policies linked to the understanding and promotion of initiatives for achieving a vibrant company by employees of the Group.

Message from the president to employees on achieving a vibrant company

The vibrant company that I have in mind, is one in which employees are fully aware, take enormous pride, and are able to take on specific challenges.

In order to utilize the Group’s wide-ranging businesses to improve life for everyone around the world and the global environment, a diverse group of employees with different personalities, experiences, and characteristics must be allowed to demonstrate their individual capabilities, personalities, and characteristics to the greatest extent possible. In 2015, SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group drew up the “Diversity Management Policy.” In pushing forward diversity management across the entire Group, steps were then taken to promote female empowerment as a first step. Thanks largely to the dual efforts of promoting women’s empowerment while creating a positive organizational environment, SEKISUI CHEMICAL was selected as a Nadeshiko brand among a number of favorable results. Our goal moving forward is to build an organization in which all employees, including women, can actively participate in the business and take on challenges on a daily basis.

To this end, SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group will work to improve productivity, reform its systems and culture, and enhance Governance (Internal Control) through such wide-ranging measures as digital transformation, automation of the plant floor, work style reforms that allow diverse human resources to excel, health and productivity management, and efforts aimed at expanding opportunities and challenges.

SEKISUK CHEMICAL Group’s mission is to be acclaimed by stakeholders as a truly excellent company and a corporate group that increasingly contributes to the sustainability of society. It is our hope that all employees will continue to take up each challenge with a strong sense of pride.

Let’s refine our ESG management and harness the collective strengths of all Group employees to overcome every challenge and grow.
