The Taiyo Yuden Group is conducting health management activities to promote employee health, improve corporate performance, and enhance corporate social value. In FY2019, we carried out the following three activities in order to maintain the rate of diagnosis and boost health awareness of each employee.
① Activities aiming at enforcing a total smoking ban on company premises by April 2021 are being carried out in stages, targeting domestic sites.
- For the improvement of non-smoking/smoking environments, we reviewed the smoking areas, layouts, and rules for the enforcement of a total smoking ban during working hours.
- As part of a no-smoking information campaign, we selected a “non-smoking day” for each month and informed smokers of it.
- To help employees stop smoking, we started providing in-house counseling, online support for smoking cessation using smartphones, and support for the utilization of a smoking cessation clinic.
② We held a “Seminar on women’s health by an obstetrician-gynecologist” for female employees, with the aim of supporting working women to continue working with enthusiasm. From the seminar, the employees learned how to cope with health problems by knowing the condition of their own bodies.
③ We have started providing articles summarizing health information that is easy-to-understand, with the aim of helping each employee improve their awareness and practice health management by gaining a correct understanding of health.
As a result, the rate of employees who were diagnosed with an illness in FY 2019 was 54.3%, while the national average was 56.6%. We will continue to promote healthcare activities so that our employees can work comfortably and in good health.
