March 4, 2021
TOKYO, March 4, 2021 – FUJIFILM Holdings Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) is pleased to announce that the company has been selected as a “Health & Productivity Stock” for the first time in a joint program run by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE).
The METI and TSE launched the Health & Productivity Stock Selection in 2015 to recognize TSE-listed enterprises that actively promote “Health & Productivity Management*1,” an initiative focusing on and strategically carrying out efforts regarding employees’ health from a management perspective.
In September 2019, FUJIFILM Holdings adopted the “Fujifilm Group Employee Wellness Declaration” to strongly promote Health & Productivity Management, recognizing that one of its management tasks is to maintain and promote employee wellness, which lays the foundation for realizing the Fujifilm Group’s corporate philosophy and vision. The company has worked on building a health-oriented corporate culture while also implementing employee wellness measures including setting Group-wide numerical targets in five categories, namely lifestyle diseases, cancer, smoking, mental health and working hours.
