Contribution toward Solving Various Types of Labor-related Issues through Our Main Business
As the foundation of our corporate activity DIP will continue to support recruiting and maximize the utilization of human resources through our job information platforms and job agency site. We also aim to make a contribution toward solving various types of labor-related issues in Japan and create opportunities for job seekers to work actively.
Development of the Foundations of Our Employees
In 2008 the Lehman Shock triggered a global financial crisis forcing many companies to undertake restrictive measures. Notwithstanding this situation, DIP resisted the trend to cut back its labor force and instead explored a range of alternative solutions. This corporate approach is based on the conviction of Hideki Tomita, President and CEO, (It has long been his stance) that “above all, it is employees that count the most. Employees are the most important asset for DIP.” Based on the principle that manpower is the strongest driving force for changing our future, DIP remains committed to improving its employee satisfaction and promoting work style reform initiatives by seeking to develop the foundations of its employees while encouraging each of them to conduct their duties with the aim of creating a better society.
Promotion of Work Style Reforms and Diversity at Work
Given the decrease in the working-age population associated with an aging population and a declining birth rate, as well as increasing diversity in terms of the need for workers to balance their childcare/nursing care responsibilities with their work, it has become important in recent years for corporations to create working environments that are able to accommodate diverse working styles. In view of these trends in society, efforts are underway at DIP to promote work style reforms, including the achievement of work-life balance and diversity at work, with the aim of establishing a work environment in which every employee can demonstrate their job performance to the fullest.
DIP provides all of its employees with various opportunities to deepen their understanding of the relationships between its business activities and global, regional, and country-specific human rights issues. The company is also committed to a wide range of initiatives that raise awareness among our employees of human rights concerns.
Initiatives for Regional Revitalization
While SMEs in regional areas are facing labor shortages, in urban areas, there are a large number of part-timers and dispatch workers who wish to work as regular employees, especially among younger people. By providing services that match local governments with job seekers who are highly motivated to work in regional areas, DIP promotes migration to local governments and the creation of job opportunities. These activities contribute to the sustainable development of local governments.
Relationships with local communities and society
DIP is committed to addressing issues faced by local communities, including regional revitalization, as well as other social issues. To accomplish this, we work with diverse stakeholders including local communities, governments, universities, NGOs, and NPOs toward the ultimate goal of building a society in which everyone enjoys prosperity. We have also developed a system that permits employees to proactively participate in community and social activities, including a volunteer leave program. Through these and other initiatives, both corporate and social, we will contribute to making a better society for everyone.
