Diversity and Inclusion
At Daiwa House Group, we share the dream of our founder to become a corporate group with sales of 10 trillion yen on our 100th anniversary in 2055, and our employees have come together to work toward that goal. The greatest management resource needed to accomplish it is human resources.
To grow into a corporate group that can contribute to the world going forward, we need to respond flexibly to diverse values and to society as it constantly changes, and create new value capable of discovering potential markets. To do that, we need to foster a workplace culture that makes the most of perspectives and ideas that utilize employees’ diverse values, genders, generations, ethnicities, languages, cultures, lifestyles, abilities and disabilities, etc., and create an organization that can continuously generate concepts unfettered by conventional thinking and preconceived ideas.
At Daiwa House, as a touchstone of the promotion of diversity, we are actively working on one aspect of diversity, the workplace participation of female employees. In 2005, we established the Women’s Participation Promotion Project and, in 2007, founded the Wave Heart Promotion Section as a dedicated organization. In April 2015, the latter’s name was changed to the Diversity Promotion Section, and from May 2019 it became part of the Sustainability Planning Department.
In our 6th Medium-Term Management Plan, also, we will work diligently to create a workplace in which diverse employees, including women, older workers, LGBT, etc., can thrive even more.
Initiatives for the workplace participation of diverse human resources
We are working to promote the active participation of older workers and LGBT, advance employment of the disabled, and train global human resources.
