Recognizing the importance of mental health care, the HCM Group continues to carry out activities focused on four aspects of care based on the guidelines published by Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare. In FY 2019, we held a total of 60 line care trainings for managers related to harassment prevention. For this training, we tried to make it easier for the trainees to understand, such as using the World Cafe method, and consider communication between the participants. We have conducted stress checks annually from before they were required by law. These checks have enabled us to raise awareness among employees about stress, create a comfortable work environment, and promote the use of hotlines staffed by professional counselors. In FY 2019, stress checks were performed in November, with approximately 10,000 employees across the HCM Group in Japan receiving one. Stress checks represent an important initiative linked with our health maintenance and advancement measures and deeply correlated with measures to prevent overwork and provide appropriate solutions and guidance by physicians.
Additionally, we strive to carry out activities with an eye on both employees and their families, including self-care training targeting all employees, line-care training for managers including discussions on improving the workplace, support for employees returning from leave, and health counseling support, including for families, through the Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
Going forward, we aim to be a company in which human resources, which are irreplaceable for a company, can fully demonstrate their abilities and work in a healthier and more comfortable manner. To that end, we will work to improve the quality of occupational health in general, while being aware of work style reforms and improving employee satisfaction.
