By making the most of the diverse characteristics and talents of our employees, we will enhance our corporate vitality and shape an environment in which everyone can work with energy and enthusiasm.

Active, Ongoing Human Resource Development
As expressed in the saying, “A company is its people,” the growth of employees is essential for increasing corporate value. One of the MEDIPAL Group’s management policies is to train creative employees, and we actively work to develop our human resources on an ongoing basis.

Maintaining Peace of Mind in the Workplace
The MEDIPAL Group respects fundamental human rights and takes various measures to create a vital organization in which every employee can work with energy and enthusiasm.
Regulations to Prevent Harassment
With the enforcement of the amended Equal Employment Opportunity Law and the amended Child Care and Family Care Leave Law on January 1, 2017, we adopted the necessary measures in Group company regulations concerning sexual harassment and maternity harassment, and so on in the workplace.
Sexual Harassment and Human Relations Hotline
To protect employees’ human rights and their right to work, and enable them to execute their work smoothly, we have set up a hotline for employees to discuss workplace issues such as sexual harassment, abuse of authority, gender harassment and human relations.
Comfortable Workplace Environments
The MEDIPAL Group creates workplace environments in which employees can work without sacrificing their own lifestyles and values, and provides support to help them lead healthy, fulfilling lives, both mentally and physically.
Balance between Work and Family Life
The MEDIPAL Group strives to maintain an environment in which employees can readily utilize various systems (childcare and family-care leave, childcare time, shortened work hours, and nursing leave) to maintain a satisfying and enjoyable balance between work and family life.
Employees Who Are Mentally and Physically Healthy
The MEDIPAL Group provides regular health checkups for employees to detect any illnesses early and to maintain and improve wellness. In addition to physical health, Group companies focus on mental health with education and awareness programs as well as an EAP hotline.＊
＊Employee Assistance Program (EAP) Hotline: A hotline where professional counselors are available for consultation on a wide range of work-related or personal problems and concerns.
Welfare and Benefit Programs
MEDIPAL Group companies provide a full range of welfare and benefit programs. These include time off and financial assistance to further raise the motivation of employees and help them exercise their skills at every stage of their careers＊; enrollment in benefit plans; the MEDIPAL Group Benefit Association; an employees’ savings plan; and payment of congratulatory, condolence and disaster relief money.

No Overtime Day
MEDIPAL HOLDINGS CORPORATION, MEDICEO CORPORATION, ATOL CO., LTD. and MP AGRO CO., LTD. designate certain days as “No Overtime Days” on which employees are encouraged to leave the office at the official quitting time.
The No Overtime Day promotes work-life balance by giving employees more time to spend with their families or to pursue personal interests or studies. It also leads to improved work quality as employees do their jobs in a more planned, efficient manner. Saving electric power is another benefit, because having all employees go home at the same time reduces the usage of lights, photocopiers and air conditioners.
