Respect for Human Rights and Diversity

We respect the human rights of individuals associated with the products and services of the group and strive to maintain a sound and sustainable business.

EIZO Group Human Rights Policy

Respect for human rights, as one of the EIZO Group Principles of Conduct to be observed by all workers, is a key corporate social responsibility for which we have established the EIZO Group Human Rights Policy. It is intended to establish a safe, secure, prosperous, and sustainable society by correctly understanding and recognizing the laws, culture, religion, and values of each country and region. We strive to deeply incorporate this policy into group business and advance efforts to respect human rights with the understanding and cooperation of all our business partners, suppliers, and other parties associated with the products and services of the group.

Developing Trust-Based Labor-Management Relations

Mutual understanding is the cornerstone of labormanagement relations. In keeping with this fundamental point, we encourage dialogue between labor and management. We have established a consultation conference and a labor committee in each group company under the laws and specific circumstances of each respective country. We take advantage of these opportunities to develop good labor-management relationships. One example is the ‘V-work Council’, which has been set up in Japan as a consultation forum for the company and employees. In addition to concluding a labor-management agreement, the council discusses topics such as reducing overtime, improving the work-life balance, and employee benefits.


Success of a Diverse Workforce

EIZO comprises 17 companies globally and we harness the talents of our diverse workforce. While respecting the human rights of each employee and promoting a mutual understanding of different cultures, the entire group strives to develop our business with a sense of unity.Overseas group companies are led by local managers, and we pay careful consideration to the circumstances, cultures and customs of each country to ensure the most suitable working environment.

providing training for selected management and mid-level employees, as well as active participation of female employees in recruitment activities.
