As an energy company, Tokyo Gas Group is committed to doing business responsibly and respecting the human rights of everyone, including its employees. For us, promoting human rights starts with the establishment of fair human resource selection procedures and the creation of a vibrant workplace, and we are pursuing various measures as a group to achieve these goals. We are also continuing to tackle human rights issues by, for example, preventing harassment and promoting diversity in order to implement our main policies for fiscal 2015-2017.
Tokyo Gas provides various training for group employees with the aim of creating a vibrant workplace.
Through their training, employees are kept abreast of the latest trends in human rights faced by companies and develop a heightened sensitivity to human rights by learning about the importance of supply chain management to a socially responsible global business and human rights issues such as Dowa issues, harassment, and communication in the workplace.
Training makes extensive use of a participatory approach and a strong focus is placed on encouraging participants to make discoveries for themselves. In the case of level-specific training, for instance, examples of minor human rights concerns in the workplace are compiled for use as teaching materials. By discussing actual cases that concern them directly, training is made more relevant to participants’ own situations.
