One of the characteristics of our group is that we operate on roughly three essential principles. The reason for that is that we believe it is important to contribute to society by working with various stakeholders. We are therefore focusing on uncompromisingly ensuring transparency of our activities and being a group that respects the philosophy of openness in its day-to-day duties.
The three principles are “soundness of financial management,” “transparency in quality management,” and “contribution through environmental management.”
We have so far been managing our group by working on a grand theme every year, and in particular, we are sure that we have been able to create mutually beneficial value through, above all, interacting with our stakeholders by holding quarterly meetings, where we look at quarterly terms from short-term, medium-term, and long-term perspectives.
In a board meeting held in our first year in business, we declared that, for us to be able to make a successful IPO, we would need to develop human resources, display entrepreneurship, uncover our potential, and become a group of professionals. The group’s current focus is to research and study the issue of “work-life balance” from various perspectives.
Since our establishment, we have been spinning off our departments to set up subsidiaries. The biggest aim was to develop superior human resources. We offered our executives an opportunity to test their ability to withstand heavy responsibility for an extended period of time by experiencing the fulfilling aspects of running a business, which is part of the philosophy behind our establishment.
The most important aspect of running a business is to keep creating “uniqueness” as well as to contribute to society under a firm set of values.
