Rollout of the Message from the President and solicitation of compliance slogans are examples of measures we take for all employees to proactively participate in compliance activities. In this way, we improve employee awareness of compliance.

Compliance Awareness Survey

Conducting Compliance Questionnaires

We conduct a compliance questionnaire every year, which is an awareness survey of employees at the Company and its domestic group companies and is intended to create highly transparent companies.
The collected questionnaire results are used to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of each department’s compliance culture. Thus, we work on themed improvement activities led by the Compliance Committee.
Additionally, based on the questionnaire results, including the contents of open-end comments, we hold meetings for employees to exchange freewheeling opinions and strive to foster a compliance culture at each workplace.
