Promoting Diversity


Stance on Promoting Diversity

Diversity as a Management Strategy

One of Fuji Electric’s management policies is “Maximize our strengths as a team, respecting employees’ diverse ambition.
In addition, our Code of Conduct declares our intention to “Respect and value all people.” Based on this commitment by senior management, Fuji Electric is working to development human resource and compensation systems that enable diverse human resources to work and succeed.

We are also promoting hiring irrespective of gender or nationality, employing those who can be effective immediately and are career-focused, and actively advancing women and people who have been hired overseas (local hires).

Diversity Promotion System

Since 2006, Fuji Electric has been actively developing frameworks, a corporate culture, and a workplace environment that ensures the diversity of all employees is respected and that employees are able to exercise their talents to the fullest.

Based on the system outlined below, we are currently pursuing inter-division coordination while initiatives are shared among divisions to propel our initiatives forward.

  • Approval of diversity measures (including training and other) by Executive Officer in charge of Human resources and General Affairs

  • Assignment of a dedicated person to assume responsibility for promoting diversity (within Human Resources and General Affairs Office)

  • Construction of a cross-Group diversity promotion system (that incorporates business units and operating sites)
