Hitachi's Setting Goals to Promote Diversity. Ratio of female and non-Japanese Executive officers and Corporate Officers to reach 10% by FY2020
Hitachi's activities targeting diversity
Hitachi has positioned diversity management as an important management strategy, and is promoting this approach throughout the Hitachi Group worldwide, based on a strong commitment by senior management. In order to resolve the issues being faced by customers and society, which are characterized by growing diversity and complexity, it will be necessary to combine human resources that demonstrate diverse values. For this reason, Hitachi has endeavored to put in place working environments that enable a wide range of employees to demonstrate their full scope of abilities. As evidence of how environments have been put in place to enable diverse manpower to continue working effectively, since the 1990s, Hitachi has established and enhanced structures that support employees who are working while caring for children or elderly parents, and has created environments that allow employees to choose flexible work style. Since December 2016, Hitachi has conducted a companywide campaign targeting work style reforms, called "Work Life Innovation," to accelerate collaborations between employees and management in the creation of environments that allow all employees to demonstrate and utilize their full potential, regardless of gender, age, nationality, or other attributes. Furthermore, in January 2018, Hitachi will start operation of a new HR Integrated Platform which established as a personnel management framework that can be worked throughout the Hitachi Group on a global scale, and enables to integrate information and processes related to human resources. In this way, Hitachi will continue to create new value and solutions to resolve the issues being faced by customers and by society.
