PHC Corporation is promoting women’s participation and advancement in the workplace from three points: reforming corporate culture, transforming managers’ mindsets, and enhancing female employee morale. We encourage employees to utilize teleworking and flexible working hours for coping with different lifestyles including parenting and nursing. A mentoring system for selected employees and round-table talks with the top management are held to support female employees’ longterm career development and increase their motivation. Training and seminars on diversity are also programmed for refreshing the managers’ ways of thinking.
PHC Holdings Corporation established a special subsidiary company in 2015 to raise the employment rate of persons with disabilities. The parent company and the special subsidiary company work hand in hand to promote the employment of the disabled, and select works within the PHC Group that are suitable for persons with disabilities, aiming for a happy workplace for all Group employees.
TOPIC: Employing the Disabled
By establishing PHC Associates as a special subsidiary company, PHC Holdings Corporation improved the PHC Group’s employment rate of persons with disabilities which had dropped to 1%, to the employment quota of 2% after one year. PHC Associates provides various services including cleaning of the PHC Group premises, cleanroom garment laundering, carrying and separating recyclable wastes in offices/factories, PC setup for PHC Group employees, production process preparation, and distributing postal and internal mail. The range of services will be further expanded in the future, with additional new tasks. While other PHC Group employees concentrate on the core businesses, PHC Associates employees can work alongside together, and the relationship of mutual appreciation is being built. Going forward, we seek to achieve 3% employment rate for the disabled, and together with the parent company, aim to provide a workplace where local disabled people can work in comfort.
