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.
Organizing SG Holdings Group Sports Festival
In order for our staff to work with vigor and enthusiasm, understanding and support by family members are highly valued. We understand that their families are also an essential part of SG Holdings Group and thus organize various events to cultivate mutual friendships between our employees together with their families, within each group company, branch, or region.
Among these, the SG Holdings Group Sports Festival (SSF), the largest such event for our group, is held in the beginning of May every year. The participating employees and their family members from all over the country get together at Moriyama Park, one of our resort facilities located in Moriyama City, Shiga Prefecture, and enjoy the sense of togetherness through sports and events.
We also support various sports club activities within the company for promoting sports and for the health of our employees. Sagawa Express cooperates with local communities in support of artistic and sports activities, as well as educational programs for the children who make up the next generation.

Company visits by families during summer break
On August 20, 2010, family work visits were held at Sagawa Express' Tokyo Head Office in Koto Ward.
In order to increase understanding of logistics operations among families of employees and teach them about the company's views on work ethics, and also to create opportunities for increased parent-child communication, this program was held for the first time with 14 families attending for a total of 45 participants.
Children who participated wore Sagawa Express uniforms, and through classes, observation tours and hands-on delivery experiences learned about Sagawa Express' courier delivery system and methods it adopts, as well as safety and environmental initiatives. These activities enabled them to experience how logistics works firsthand.
Many of the children were impressed, making comments such as "now I understand what dad does at work," "being able to do deliveries myself was really fun" and "I see how Sagawa Express cares about safety and the environment when making deliveries."
