Health Improvement Initiatives

Tokyo Tatemono aims to have a check-up rate of 100% for periodic health examinations, and is advancing initiatives to raise greater awareness in all employees about health management (100% rate is sustained since 2011).
We coordinate with health insurance associations to conduct a wide range of initiatives for improving health management. We also understand the health risk attributes of employees in addition to actively engaging in preventative measures against severe illnesses for non-obese and young people not eligible for special screenings with the purpose of improving health through preventative and early-term treatment. We have also been introducing group dental check-ups since 2017 as part of our efforts in health management.
As daily health measures, we are strengthening support to maintain the health of employees by ensuring that the costs required for voluntary health management such as physical examinations, various cancer screenings, medical treatment, pharmaceuticals, and health management programs are covered in the Welfare Cafeteria Plan*.
We had also been subsidizing the cost for influenza vaccines up until recently, but we have strengthened the prevention of mass infection during the influenza season by inviting physicians to the company to provide vaccinations from 2016.

In addition, we are providing mental health counseling via health insurance associations and these counseling services have been made available to employees who have unstable mental health. We started linking to psychiatric advisors in 2016 and have put in place a support system that includes return to work training.
As mental health enlightenment activities, we are conducting training in self-care and employee care overseen by line managers, and newly appointed managers in particular are required to participate in the training for employee care overseen by line managers (100% attendance rate).
We invite sports trainers as lecturers for new employees and conduct training all employees participate.
We understand the importance of mental health for all of our employees and strive in the early diagnosis and prevention of mental health problems.

Labor and Management Dialogue

Tokyo Tatemono supports the right for freedom of association and collective bargaining. All of our employees except for core management have formed and are members of the Tokyo Tatemono Labor Union (as of January 1, 2019). The Union and Tokyo Tatemono have concluded a labor agreement and work to solve a diverse range of challenges through a dialogue between labor and management.

Endeavoring for Work-style Innovation Together as Labor and Management

Tokyo Tatemono established a Work-Style Innovation Labor-Management Review Meeting with the labor union in 2017.
This meeting committee structure anticipates the accomplishment of the Group medium-term business plan and growth thereafter and aims to further improve productivity and efficiency in business execution.
We know conducting work-style innovation suitable to Tokyo Tatemono is necessary and have setup specific measures for debate between labor and management.
We shared the purpose and goals intended by work-style innovation and engaged in a lively debate between labor and management.
Since 2018, we have been conducting telework trials in an effort to further the introduction of specific measures geared toward enhancing productivity.

[Tokyo Tatemono Work-Style Innovation Concepts]
The ideal goal of work-style innovation is to bring about more time, such as more efficiency, to aid in corporate growth as well as individual growth and happiness.

Initiatives to Reduce Overtime

Tokyo Tatemono has continued measures to prevent overtime since 2008 from the perspectives of work-life balance and employee health management.
We have adopted a system to shut down computers at the standard end of the working day in 2010 to control late-night working hours and prevent overwork. Furthermore, in departments long-working hours occur, we have implemented a framework to fight back by requiring direct supervisors to report improvement measures. Through this type of PDCA cycle, we are striving to reduce overtime (outside working hours).

Transitioning to Fixed Overtime per Month

*1 The fixed regular working hours per day is 7.5 hours (statutory working hours is 8).

Transitioning to Fixed Overtime per Month

Occupational Health and Safety

Tokyo Tatemono works to ensure employee safety by advancing a wide range of initiatives for the guarantee of a work-friendly environment as stated in the Compliance Manual. Although we have not acquired the OHSAS18001 or other external certifications related to occupational health and safety, we work to ensure safety by conducting risk assessment and improvement activities.

Support of Club Activities

Tokyo Tatemono put in place approval and subsidy rules for club activities in 2014 and has introduced systems to support the outside activities of employees. Currently, we are subsidizing rental fees of activity venues and participation costs in competitions for the 12 clubs that have been approved. Employees of Group companies are also participating, and we are conducting Group-wide activities that go beyond corporate barriers.
Furthermore, each club participates in athletic competitions held by local public organizations and actively communicates with the local community.
