Social Background and Issues
With the ever-increasing competition amid globalization and technological innovation, a company has to offer a work environment where individuals can exert their capabilities and creativity to the fullest extent and have greater satisfaction in their job. This is the way for a company to grow constantly—by streamlining its business and fully utilizing diverse human resources. To this end, it is indispensable for us to build a system that realizes a new way of working and delivers a communication environment free from limitations of time, location, language, gender, age, or disability. We must also promote various work styles for employees to choose to meet the needs of their lifestyle and life stage changes. The COVID-19 pandemic rapidly made remote working more commonplace. Along with this, it has presented issues related to communicating with each other, such as experiencing anxiety or loneliness through working alone at home.
Goals under Sustainable Value Plan 2030
