Employee health and safety

Basic concept

We want to be a company where employees are able to work with pride and enthusiasm. Based on this premise, we believe that when employees and their families are able to maintain and improve their physical and mental health and well-being, and employees can continue working with a sense of enjoyment, new ideas and inspiration will be born. What’s more, everyone’s individual aptitudes and capabilities will be fully unleashed, leading to company development and contributions to society. This philosophy is expressed in the GOLDWIN Group Health Management Declaration and shared with employees and their families, health insurance associations and the wider society so that we create good health and well-being together.

GOLDWIN Group Health Management Declaration

Our corporate mission is to “realize a fulfilling and healthy lifestyle through sports.” Employees’ physical and mental health and safety is absolutely essential for both the company and employees to achieve growth. We pledge to proactively work together with employees, their families and health insurance associations to create conditions so that all employees are able to work safely and maintain and improve their health.

Message from the President on health management

At GOLDWIN, we want to be a company where employees are able to work with pride and enthusiasm. Based on this premise, we believe that when employees and their families are able to maintain and improve their physical and mental health and well-being, and employees can continue working with a sense of enjoyment, new ideas and inspiration will be born. What’s more, everyone’s individual aptitudes and capabilities will be fully unleashed, leading to company development and contributions to society. We will promote health creation as a company in concert with the health insurance associations, employees and their families so that we are able to prioritize sports and the environment as well as live life without a boundary between work and play.

Selected for the 2021 Certified Health and Productivity Management Organization
Recognition Program (large enterprise category)

We were selected for the 2021 Certified Health and Productivity Management Organization Recognition Program (large enterprise category) by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan. Based on initiatives for overcoming health-related challenges in communities and initiatives to improve health led by the Japan Health Council, the Certified Health and Productivity Management Organization Recognition Program recognizes outstanding large enterprises and small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that are engaging in efforts for health management. We position ensuring the physical and mental health and safety of employees as a priority management issue, and promote health improvements through a range of initiatives under the leadership of top management. We strive to create work environments that allow employees to work in physical and mental safety and security. For example, all employees receive regular medical checkups, smoking is banned on company property, employees are given stress checks, we strive to improve work–life balance, and we hold trainings on improving health and on mental health.

Occupational health and safety

We have pledged to uphold management that places first priority on employee health and safety, and comply with laws and ordinances related to occupational health and safety accordingly. In addition, we have established the Health and Safety Committee under the General Manager of Human Resources and General Affairs Division as an organization for promoting occupational health and safety. The committee meets 12 times a year in the Tokyo, Toyama and Osaka regions. In FY 2020, the committee mainly discussed basic infection control measures for individuals to implement to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The committee also held consultations on points to consider in maintaining employee health while employees work from home, including daily routines, exercise, nutrition, rest and communication (emotional well-being).
