With Our Employees

Employees are an invaluable resource for businesses. In order to respect employees and guarantee equality, we are making efforts to provide comfortable work environments for all our employees.

Realizing ideal working conditions

Considering that our employees, which number more than 70,000 throughout the SG Holdings Group, are our indispensable assets, we must realize ideal working conditions for all of them. We respect human rights, individuality, personality, and privacy at the workplace while making efforts in 6S activities, namely arrangement (Seiri), putting things straight (Seiton), purity (Seiketsu), cleaning (Seiso), discipline (Shitsuke) and manner (Saho) for the realization of safe and healthy working conditions.


Aiming for a workplace where female employees can continue to work long-term

Since the "Working Woman Guide" was released, the amount of female employees has increased more than twofold from the 3,000 employed five years ago. That number continues to grow, and in response to increasing calls for opportunities to continue working while pursuing other landmarks such as marriage, pregnancy, childbirth and child-raising, there is a need to disseminate further information among female workers and management staff concerning systems in place and available support. While preparing relevant rules and information, much time was spent on the subjects of unification disparate standards at companies around the country, and particularly on what kind of considerations should be taken for pregnant female drivers. After much debate, and with the generous support of various private and public organizations, we were able to establish unified rules for all companies while revising certain regulations. We strive to create a workplace in which both men and women feel motivated to work, where everyone can enjoy their job regardless of gender.
