Diversity & Inclusion
We will promote diversity to realize a corporate group that brings smiles to both customers and employees.
The environment surrounding the Seibu Group is currently in the midst of change. The needs of our customers are rapidly evolving due to societal changes such as a declining population, aging society, and an increase in foreign visitors to Japan. As the Seibu Group, we must be agile and adaptable to confront these changes directly. Diversity is an essential component to comply with such changes.
We, as the Seibu Group, are also diversifying in terms of our employees' status, working styles, and nationalities. Therefore, we must acknowledge and embrace these differences and utilize each employee's individuality. This is not only vital for our success but also a social responsibility we must fulfill as a publicly listed company.
In 2015, we created the "Seibu Group Basic Policy for Diversity Promotion" as our vision for promoting diversity in the medium to long-term. As part of this policy, we are taking specific actions to change the mindset and working styles of every employee and create an environment that supports these changes.
Through these efforts, we will create an organization in which each and every employee can work with peace of mind and take on the challenge of self-realization, thereby can promptly respond to various customer needs and provide new value to the world. This is the goal towards which we promote diversity.
Our slogan for promoting diversity is "People Shine. The future will open up." We believe that by acknowledging and embracing diversity, we can create a brighter future. The entire Seibu Group is committed to realizing this slogan and becoming a corporate group that brings smiles to the faces of both customers and employees.
Thank you for your continued support.
