Since December 2018, we have held harassment prevention seminars for directors and managers with the aim of eradicating any kind of harassment such as sexual harassment, abuse of authority, and pregnancy discrimination. A total of 1,022 directors and managers (as of October 31, 2019) from Head Office, complexes, and branches participated in the seminars. The seminars provided participants with an opportunity to deepen understanding of sexual harassment and abuse of authority in the workplace and to consider the role of managers to prevent such harassment. We will continue these seminars to create harassment-free workplaces.
To maintain healthy work environments free from harassment and ensure no employees at all engage in, encourage, or overlook harassment, we created specific prevention guides and raised awareness of them among all employees.
