Diversity and Inclusion

We established the Diversity Promotion Office in August 2019 to develop a corporate culture of respect for diverse individuality and further promote MGC’s management concept of striving to create a place where there is job satisfaction and a dynamic group in which motivations and abilities are respected.An inter-departmental committee and other organizations were established, proposals are being made to address various issues, and we are working to make improvements.

Diversity Promotion Policy

MGC  defines diversity as "the active participation of all employees through the optimal utilization of their diverse individualities."

MGC's basic policy for promoting diversity is stated below. The aim is to create an invigorated corporate culture in which all employees participate actively based on acceptance of each other and being inspired by each other, and which gives rise to a wide variety of ideas and ways of thinking.  

Basic Policy

  • Promoting awareness about respect for diverse values and ways of thinking
    We promote the development of employee awareness that ensures everyone accepts and respects the differences in each other's values, in the way they understand things, in the way they feel, and in their ways of thinking.
  • Creating an environment that ensures diverse work styles
    We are committed to promoting the development of a work environment that enables diverse and flexible work styles and to the realization of work-life balance, through "work style reform."
  • Diversification of human resources and the creation of an organization that optimizes the utilization of each and every human resource
    We promote organization development that makes optimal utilization of diversity by recruiting and appointing diverse personnel regardless of gender, age, nationality, disability, or educational background.
  • Development of human resources who can demonstrate individual strengths
    We promote human resource development that makes it possible for each employee to hone and demonstrate their capabilities and their individuality as professionals.
  • Promoting mental and physical health (promoting health management)
    Mental and physical health is more important than anything else. We are committed to promoting our employees' health maintenance and health enhancement.

Diversity Promotion System

We established the Diversity Promotion Office in August 2019 to develop a corporate culture of respect for diversity that values differences and further promote MGC's management concept of creating a place where there is job satisfaction and a dynamic group in which motivations and abilities are respected.
