Initiative to Promote Employee Wellness
The Fujifilm Group’s Corporate Philosophy includes our pledge to help improve health in society and enhance quality of life of people worldwide. To realize this philosophy, the Sustainable Value Plan 2030 (the foundations of the Group’s business management strategies for sustainable growth) emphasizes “health” as one of the top priority issues, and we are working to create a healthy society through the healthcare business.
We also believe that the health and wellness of our employees is essential in achieving our Corporate Philosophy and Vision (Fujifilm Group’s Ideals), so we have adopted the Fujifilm Group Employee Wellness Declaration in 2019. We are quickly implementing measures to improve the health and wellness of employees throughout the Group. Our goal is to grow our business, company and community, and we are committed to helping create a society where people can live long, healthy lives.
We will set quantifiable goals to be addressed up to 2025, and continue to improve the level of employee wellness through the PDCA cycle of action and assessment and plan to share our results with the public. We also plan to expand these employee wellness promotion activities not only in Japan but also worldwide to raise the bottom line of awareness across the Group by rolling out good practices.
Fujifilm Group Strategy Map for Management of a Healthy Workplace
Review of FY2019 - 2021
- In addition to setting shared KPIs for the common group, the Employee Wellness Managers, Employee Wellness Promotion Managers, and persons in charge at each group company were appointed. We launched group-wide initiatives to achieve shared numerical targets for the group in five priority areas.
- We set up an employee wellness portal site on the company’s intranet and started a series of special features on employee wellness in the in-house magazine*1. We also hung posters in the workplace to educate employees.
- In February 2020, every executive of Fujifilm and Fuji Xerox（currently FUJIFILM Business Innovation） and all Presidents of affiliated companies published their own Health Declarations on the intranet. This is how we showed that health is a priority for all of Fujifilm group and we were able to accelerate the implementation of the employee wellness-focused management.
- All domestic group employees (about 42,000 people) took the health e-learning course supervised by occupational health physicians. Also being expanded to subcontractors and business partners.
- FY2019: Employee Wellness Declaration; basic knowledge of cancer and lifestyle diseases;
- FY2020: COVID-19 infection, sleep and health
- FY2021: Mental health care during COVID-19
- To determine employee level of understanding and implementation of the Management of a Healthy Workplace, “Measures to Improve Health” have been added to the personnel evaluation items since fiscal 2019, with opportunities arranged for better communication between superiors and subordinates about “being healthy and highly motivated while working.” The company supports all efforts to bolster rates for “Understanding the Management of a Healthy Workplace and Measures to Improve Health are fully implemented” as evaluated by both superiors and subordinates up to 100% (cf. 89.9% in fiscal 2021).
- In order to improve the health literacy of our employees, we distributed seminars*2 and health columns*3 by medical staff (industrial physicians, public health nurses, and nurses) and specialists to all domestic group employees.

Promoting Occupational Health and Safety
Fujifilm has approximately 80 group production sites around the world, and we are promoting occupational safety suited to the business characteristics of each site. We have now started to share information on individual safety practices so that we can learn from each other and continue to make improvements. In Japan, the occupational safety managers of each Group company hold regular meetings to conduct safety patrols at each factory and discuss priority issues. In the US, a team comprised of EHS experts from the Group companies visits the factories to make safety patrols and suggest improvement ideas across all sites. We plan to take this opportunity to spread the rollout of these improved occupational health and safety practices across the factories, as well as to FUJIFILM Business Innovation.
