Septeni Group and Diversity and Inclusion

Septeni Group and Diversity and Inclusion

At the Septeni Group, motivated employees have many opportunities to take on challenges regardless of gender, age and nationality. We believe that the contributions of employees with a variety of backgrounds make the Group’s results through autonomous and valuable jobs result in the Group’s sustainable development. Based on this belief, we support and promote diverse workstyles as stated in Diversity in the Septeni Way, the Group’s code of conduct.
Diversity (from the Septeni Way)
Using diversity as a competitive edge
We respect all human rights and mutually recognize diversity. We work to realize workstyles in which individuals can exhibit and apply their respective strengths.

Septeni’s logo is based on the concept of “tough, gentle and fun.” Gentle means accepting of diversity. As the Group’s symbol shows, the Septeni Group considers diversity and inclusion to be a very important theme in its activities.

つよく、やさしく、おもしろく。ひとりひとりのアントレプレナーシップで世界を元気に。どんなときも起業家精神を持ち、変化の大きい方を選んで結果を出す「つよさ」。成功体験や成長機会を仕組み化し、多様性を認めながら皆で共有する「やさしさ」。決して簡単ではないものを、楽しみながら独自のやり方で実践する「おもしろさ」。私たちは、これら3つの力で、新しい市場に、新しい世界に挑戦する。

Educational activities

  • Organizing a workshop

    A dialogue was held between an external lecturer and our representative, Mr. Sato. Through the dialogue about the SEPTENI Group's diversity stage and future issues, and a question-and-answer session from the participants, we raised awareness about the reasons for actively working on diversity and inclusion and what effects it can produce.

  • Implementing the Diversity Award

    We invited outside judges and held a cross-group diversity award with the aim of further evolving diversity and inclusion in the Group by honoring departments and individuals who are working to support the activities of employees with various attributes and values.

Developing an Environment that Supports Diversity

Measures against discrimination and harassment

The Septeni Group continuously promotes activities to create an environment that prohibits discrimination or harassment on the grounds of gender, age, nationality, race, ethnicity, religion, thought, belief, social status, disabilities, sexual orientation or gender identity, among other reasons, and will allow all employees to fully demonstrate their strengths.

  • Learning opportunities for all employees

    We provide monthly e-learning sessions on the prevention of harassment and the consideration of human rights in advertising expressions, among other topics.

  • Harassment prevention training for managers

    To prevent harassment, we provide required training for managers. The training is practical and includes work and case studies.
