The IDEC Group strives to realize a workplace environment in which employees with disabilities can work vigorously. We strive to build workplaces that are easy to work in and where employees can voice their opinions and seek counsel from their colleagues.
As of the end of March 2017, the IDEC Group overall has 33 employees with disabilities, and its ratio of employees with disabilities is 2.90%.
We are striving to provide an environment for promoting female advancement: for example, we appointed a female director in 2016 and doubled the year-on-year number of female managerial personnel in 2017. Also, through actively selecting females as candidates for next generation executive positions and introducing a training program for them, we aim to increase the ratio of female managerial personnel to 10% by fiscal 2020.
In recruitment of new graduates, we strive to realize a male/female recruitment balance of 50:50. Also, we are working to raise the recruitment ratio of foreign nationals to 20% overall. Moreover, in addition to increasing the ratio of female regular employees, we are striving to expand the fields in which women can be active.
We have compiled an action plan aimed at building a workplace environment in which women can fully demonstrate their abilities and work according to their own wishes. (※Action Plan for Promotion of Activities for Female Advancement)

The IDEC Group promotes various initiatives aimed at creating workplaces in which all women can actively and positively participate.
The IDEC Group aims to be a company where employees who have reached mandatory retirement can continue to work regardless of age as long as they remain healthy, willing and capable.
Based on the Retired Re-employment Program, all employees who wish to continue working until 65 years of age are to be reemployed (we implemented this before it was compulsory by law). Accordingly, middle-aged and elderly employees can actively engage in long-term career development and maintenance of health and stamina with an eye to life after retirement at ease.
The IDEC Group promotes diversity through conducting recruitment of new graduates and mid-career human resources regardless of nationality and receiving foreign technical interns and so on.
Also, through establishing language training and overseas trainee systems for Japanese employees, we conduct initiatives aimed at enhancing international communication ability and understanding for foreign cultures. Interchanges between global human resources contribute towards vitalizing the company and securing a stable supply of human resources.
