Promote Management of a Healthy Workplace (Priority Issue 5)

[SPECIAL CONTENT] Fighting Against COVID-19

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 2022, 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.

  • 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 42,000 employees in Japan took an e-learning program on health and wellness under the guidance of an occupational physician.

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.

FUJIFILM Holdings Corporation has been selected as a Health & Productivity Stock in 2021 for the first time.

In March 2021, FUJIFILM Holdings Corporation has been selected as a Health & Productivity Stock for the first time.  The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) launched the Health & Productivity Stock Selection in 2015 to recognize TSE-listed enterprises that actively promote Health & Productivity Management, an initiative focusing on and strategically carrying out efforts regarding employees' health from a management perspective.

The Fujifilm Group has been actively working to promote better health since adopting the Fujifilm Group Employee Wellness Declaration in 2019, with an emphasis on issues such as life-style related diseases, smoking, cancer, mental health and long work hours.

19 companies in the Fujifilm Group have been certified as 2021 Health and Productivity Management Award.

Based on the initiative by Nippon Kenko Kaigi to improve health, the Health & Productivity Management Corporation certification program offered by METI recognizes major corporations as well as small- and midsize-corporations with a particularly good health and productivity management program. We received this recognition because of our group-wide efforts to improve health and productivity as well as the involvement of our individual companies.
