Building a company worth working at
Active participation of women
Supporting the active participation of women
In recent years, we have continued to actively recruit women upon hiring new graduates in the Group and promoted an increase in the number of female employees. Approx. 31% of employees who joined Haseko Corporation and approx. 39% of employees who joined the Group in April 2019 were women. Going forward, we intend to continue recruiting women proactively.
Activities of "Project for Promotion of Active Participation of Women"
The Haseko Group is seeking to give all of its employees equal opportunities to play an active role regardless of gender.
We have been publishing concrete measures to promote the active participation of women in each Group company in the form of "General Employer Action Plan." In April 2017, we launched the "Project for Promotion of Active Participation of Women" for the purpose of developing a female-friendly working environment and improving understanding at the workplace as part of the "General Employer Action Plan." We plan to formulate concrete measures from a broad perspective—e.g., expansion of occupational fields, change in mindset/advancement in career, life event support and diverse work styles—while collecting and analyzing information including conducting employee questionnaire surveys and approaching other companies.
Launch of Project for Promotion of Active Participation of Women (for Executives)
In 2018, we launched the "Project for Promotion of Active Participation of Women (for Executives)" with the objective of reflecting women's voices directly in management, based on the view that the development of an environment in which women can play an active role will translate into higher corporate value. The "Project for Promotion of Active Participation of Women (for Executives)," which consists of 31 female employees who are general managers of departments or in a higher position at the Haseko Group, puts together plans and opinions on reforms by taking advantage of women's point of view through group work, and makes a report to the management.
Supporting the active participation of "Hasejo"
The Japan Federation of Construction Contractors (JFCC) has named women working in the construction industry "KENSETSU-KOMACHI" and is proactively executing initiatives in accordance with the basic policy and action plan that it has formulated for them.
At the Haseko Group, which has also decided to support the active participation of women following the "KENSETSU-KOMACHI" action plan, female employees who play an active role in the field of the development of condominium life (e.g., business planning, development promotion, designing, construction, sales, interior decorating, administration) have been named "Hasejo."At worksites where the Hasejo Construction Work Team plays an active role, not only consideration is given to such matters as installing female-only toilets, rest stations, changerooms and other such facilities, but also efforts are being made to create worker-friendly sites for both men and women.
Holding "Female Staff Training Workshops"
With the aim of realizing female-friendly construction sites, we conduct "Female Staff Training Workshops" multiple times a year, combining female staff in eastern and western regions of Japan. By listening to senior female staff's experiences regarding how to get the job done, new recruits can envision their own future. We take young employees to worksite inspection tours so as to deepen their interest in construction and familiarize them with execution supervision operations. We also strive to share concerns and develop a sense of unity through interaction among female staff, and make improvements by identifying issues and priorities related to the working environment.
JFCC "FY2018 Inspection Tour of KENSETSU-KOMACHI-blessed Sites"
Haseko Corporation held the "Inspection Tour of KENSETSU-KOMACHI-blessed Sites" hosted by JFCC targeted at female students of elementary schools and junior high schools at the "new building construction work for Plan A in Senrioka Shinmachi, Settsu City (tentative name)" on Wednesday, July 25, 2018, in which 18 persons including their guardians participated.
The event has been held by JFCC since 2015 for the purpose of helping participants learn broadly about the nature, appeal and joy of work in the construction business by coming into contact with construction sites and the female engineers who work there, the opportunities of which are limited in everyday life.
Launch of "OSEKKAI" project
Planning of products leveraging the ideas of women in charge
Jointly with Nomura Real Estate Development, Haseko Corporation has launched "OSEKKAI," a project for planning products that make daily life enjoyable from women’s perspective. The respective women in charge at the two companies play a central role in adopting ideas at condominiums that may be deemed slightly presumptuous but bring extra joy into the daily lives of residents, under the pretext of the mindfulness specific to women referred to as "osekkai" (meaning "busybody" in Japanese). Its products will first be introduced into "PROUD CITY SHINONOME CANAL MARKS," where residents will start moving in from March 2020 onwards, followed by other properties in the future.
