Health and Productivity Management
Health and Productivity Management
We believe that it is important for each employee to be healthy and happy in order for Shinnihonseiyaku purpose “beyond innovation, for a beautiful smile!” We value the expression “a company is a human resource”, and declare that employees and the company work together to achieve health and productivity management.
- We bring to life a work environment where employees are comfortable and can work enthusiastically and happily.
- We bring to life a system in which employees can work at ease both physically and mentally.
- We bring to life a corporate culture where employees can try new things and feel a sense of purpose.
Here are some of our initiatives.
Birthdays and Thanksgiving
During an employee's month of birth, we hold birthday events to convey appreciation from the company for all their hard work on a daily basis. It is an event packed with gratitude for the special person, and a company executive plays the role of the host. At the end of the year, we also hold a Thanksgiving Day in which we thank everyone for their hard work over the year.
Thank You Cards
We launched this project with the aim of becoming “the company with the most thank yous in Japan”. When there is the feeling of gratitude of one employee wanting to say “thank you” to a fellow employee, a message is sent in a “thank you card” written by hand. The recipient is then presented with it in the post.
Interaction with Families
We hold "Shinnihonseiyaku Family Day" for the families of our employees to get to know and like our company. Children exchange business cards with employees, experience jobs, and solve quiz games related to our company, which brings beaming smiles.
Based on sports nutrition, our employee cafeteria offers a daily “Smart Lunch” meal that is supervised by a registered dietitian. It is about 600 kcal, which is 1/3 of the daily energy intake required for an adult woman.
Support for Employee Participation in Sports
We support employee participation in full marathons, relay marathons, beach tennis, and triathlons. As well as contributing to society as a tournament sponsor, we also contribute to the each employee getting into better shape.
Participation in Local Events
Each year, we form the Shinnihonseiyaku Dontaku Team with approximately 100 employees and appear in the Hakata Dontaku Port Festival, which is one of Japan's major festivals. We perform the traditional Yosakoi dance and excite the local community while delivering cheerful smiles.
In February 2018, the Kyushu-Fukuoka Health Management Promotion Council* was established to promote health and productivity management in Kyushu. We agree with the founding objective to contribute to the economic development of Kyushu by health and productivity management being recognized and practiced by many companies and organizations, and thus have been involved as one of the founding organizations. We will continue to promote health and productivity management, discuss and share information on what it entails, and spread its message far and wide.
*The Association for Preventive Medicine of Japan was established as a company that promotes health and productivity management in Kyushu.
