Creating pleasant working environments and developing diverse human resources

Creating Worker-friendly Workplaces

Progress in Initiatives Advanced by Diversity Promotion Office

We believe promoting work-life balance is an important issue. The Work-Life Balance Promotion Office(current Diversity Promotion Office), established in January 2014 as a unit that reports directly to the President, promotes diverse working styles.
To accompany our in-place system for requesting vacation in increments as small as half a day and an hour, we introduced the "refresh" vacation system in April 2015, and as a result, the usage rate for paid vacation days climbed to 74.1% in fiscal 2017, a sharp jump from a 33.0% rate in fiscal 2014.

Comparison of Total Working Hours

Introducing an at-home telework system for employees who are raising children or taking care of family members, we will work to build workplaces where each individual can fully harness their capabilities and potential.

Developing Diverse Human Resources

Cross-divisional Training

In addition to our human resource development system, a cross-divisional training program commenced in fiscal 2014 aimed at bolstering the entire organization as part of an initiative to improve our vertical organizational structure.
In fiscal 2015, a total of 280 employees--core representatives from each division and department--came together over three sessions to share information, exchange views, and propose new initiatives that extend beyond the boundaries of our organizational chart. The training sessions focused on renewing mutual understanding of tasks across divisions and departments, intra-company interaction, work-life balance, labormanagement problems, and the like.

Recognized as 2018 Outstanding Health and Productivity Management Organization

Continuing from 2017, Leopalace21 was named a "2018 outstanding health and productivity management organization" in the large enterprise category (White 500) in a February 2018 announcement, recognizing companies that excel in this field by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and Nippon Kenko Kaigi. The certification system in particular celebrates corporations such as large companies and small and mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) that put outstanding health management into practice based on initiatives linked to regional health issues and health promotion initiatives advanced by Nihon Kenko Kaigi.

Health Support Using Experts

With the establishment of a health management office at the head office, Leopalace21 disseminates recommendations from public health nurses for follow-ups after initial check-ups and, through public health guidance, encourages disease prevention and preventative measures to keep disorders from becoming serious. We also implement workplace improvement activities and line care training through stress checks.

Health Support Using Experts

Health Forums

Employees can check their health status using "smart health check" measurement instruments that estimate skin age and brain age at events we hold several times a year. Lectures on health matters, courses on yoga and breathing methods, and health consultations with public health nurses are among the features of forums we organize.

Established Healthcare Promotion Office Under the President

In May 2018, the Company established the Healthcare Promotion Office, a specialized body under the direct control of the President, in order to create a workplace environment where employees can stay healthy, both mentally and physically, by being highly conscious of their health and work dynamically. The Office is staffed with specialists including health nurses and clinical psychologists who offer health supports to employees. The main activities include implementing the Mental Health Promotion Project and Dietary Improvement Project, recommending club activities, and organizing non-smoking and smoking reduction campaigns. We will increase employees' health awareness by further reinforcing the linkages between health and business management, and thereby, deepen employee engagement.

Joined "Iku Boss" Corporate Alliance

In March 2017, Leopalace21 joined the "Iku Boss" Corporate Alliance established by NPO Fathering Japan.
The alliance is aimed at socializing managers (i.e., bosses) to deliver results for the organization and still find time to enjoy their work and private lives while keeping in mind the work-life balance of employees reporting to them. It is a company network that aims to transform the way managers and executives think about such matters.

Stakeholder's Voice

Employee Training System

The regular training system splits along two lines: training according to employee rank and training according to division. The former is designed to enable all employees to obtain the knowledge and capabilities they need in a series of stages. The latter is aimed at enabling employees to polish their expertise and thus improve customer satisfaction.

Fiscal 2014 results Fiscal 2015 results Fiscal 2016 results
Number of participants 2,739 3,220 6,510
Training costs per-person ¥77,087 ¥81,218 ¥51,397

Promoting Employment of Disabled People

With the aim of promoting the use of diverse human resources and creating a workplace that also motivates the disabled with a sense of larger purpose, we have taken steps to hire disabled employees.
In 2009, Leopalace Smile Co., Ltd. was established as a special subsidiary to employ more of the disabled, and we now have 25 disabled employees.
In fiscal 2015, the Elderly Care Business at the parent company achieved an annual average disabled employee ratio of 2.06%, and from fiscal 2016, we will continue to advance initiatives ahead of the scheduled 2018 revision to the statutory employment rate set by the law promoting employment of the disabled.
