Based on the management philosophy “Employee well-being,” Taiyo Yuden thinks of employee health management as an issue directly related to business, and we conduct health management activities to promote employee health and improvement of work engagement. In order to encourage these activities forward strategically and systematically, we set health indicators and targets to implement specific measures for health.
The anomaly observation rate in regular health checkups is increasing in recent years as the average age of employees increases. For this reason, we are making efforts emphasizing prevention of lifestyle diseases, which increase with age.
For example, we promoted exercises such as the radio gymnastic exercise and bicycle commuting after placing bicycle parking spaces on factory premises. Thus, we made efforts to induce employees to exercise daily. In addition, as health promotion programs, we made various efforts such as holding walking events in cooperation with the Society-Managed Health Insurance, providing exercise seminars by industrial physicians, conducting physical ability measurement events, and promoting club activities hosted by employees.
As a result, we were certified as the Sports Yell Company 2021*3 by the Japan Sports Agency and as the Health & Productivity Management Outstanding Organization 2021 (White 500)*4 by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. We will continue to pursue environment to work healthy both mentally and physically for our employees.
