Initiatives for promoting women’s empowerment

Acquiring the Eruboshi certification, which is based on the Act on Promotion of Women's Participation and Advancement in the Workplace

The Nakano Corporation has been certified as an Eruboshi company by the Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare. This certification system recognizes companies that have designed and submitted an action plan for initiatives promoting women’s participation and advancement in the workplace, and are carrying out the initiatives exceptionally well. Companies are evaluated using five* criteria stipulated by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, and given one of three levels of certification according to that evaluation score.

  • *The five criteria are (1) employment, (2) continued length of employment, (3) work styles, including working hours, (4) ratio of management positions, and (5) diverse career paths.

Our company is carrying out a variety of endeavors aimed at promoting women’s participation and advancement in the workplace, including holding female employee round-table talks and women’s career planning workshops. In July 2017, a woman became a construction project manager for the first time at our company. We will continue striving to create attractive workplaces where every employee can work with enthusiasm that promote women’s participation and advancement.

Improving worksite environments

Nakano Corporation is moving forward with improving worksite environments with a focus on sites where female staff are assigned. These improvements include not only women’s restrooms and changing rooms, but also washstands and areas for breaks. There was also a worksite that was the first to be designated as “Model Construction Site for Women” by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Bureau of Finance.
