Providing Supportive Workplace Environments and Promoting Diversity & Inclusion
Approach and Policy
People are the most important of all the management resources involved in corporate activities. To survive intense corporate competition and keep growing, Casio recognizes that it must constantly maximize the value of the management resource that its people represent. Casio is committed to addressing issues like the aging population and declining birthrate, decrease in the working population, and growing diversity of work-styles, and recognizes that this will require building a workplace environment that empowers each and every employee to perform at an even higher level.
│Importance for the Casio Group
The Casio Group has approximately 10,000 employees, including human resources with diverse individuality and skills. For Casio to expand further, it is essential to continue providing environments that allow these human resources to reach the full potential of their abilities.
If personnel systems and workplace environments do not respond to new demands with the changing times, vitality as a corporate organization is lost and competitiveness could decline. Therefore, as a corporation, Casio remains constantly aware of changes in society and employees and believes that it is vital to establish a workplace environment that responds to change appropriately.
In order to continually realize its corporate creed, Casio has put in place the Charter of Creativity, which sets out the basic principles around the awareness and actions expected of Casio people. However, the Charter would have no meaning if not practiced and embodied; simply stating principles is not enough. It can be said that what all employees actually do on the job constitutes the true practice and embodiment of these values.
In order to fulfill the Charter of Creativity, the Casio Business Conduct Guidelines include the following commitments.
Respecting employee diversity and fostering supportive work environments
- We welcome the participation of diverse employees and work together in harmony to create a better working environment.
- We conduct fair and impartial personnel evaluations and develop human resources who actively take on challenges with a positive spirit.
- We promote initiatives to maintain and improve individuals’ health and promote healthy workplaces.
Casio strives to build environments that allow employees to perform to their full potential based on this policy.
