Together with employees -
Personnel-related actions

Social background

Amidst a variety of CSR-related standards and targets being established (i.e. the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact, ISO26000, OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, the GRI Standards, the International Integrated Reporting Framework and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), there were repeated cases where narratives relating to human rights and labor were reinforced. The global community is strongly demanding that companies emphasize respect for human rights and workers’ rights more when engaging in business activities.

The way of thinking by JTEKT

Creating a friendly work environment for all

JTEKT promotes the creation of a workplace in which all of our employees find it easy to work, considering various aspects such as human development, respect for diversity and safety and hygiene. Our company believes that, as we expand globally, it will become even more important to deepen understanding towards human rights and share this with group companies both domestically and overseas.

Respect for human rights and utilization of diverse human resources

JTEKT's Corporate Activities Standards states the following; "Respect the individuality of employees, create safe workplaces that motivate employees and enable them to fulfill their potential and strive to provide each with abundant living circumstances." We give explicit instructions regarding the prohibition of discrimination based on race, nationality, faith, gender, sexual orientation, age, mental/physical disabilities, etc., as well as the prohibition of child labor and forced labor, and purport recognizing employees freedom of association based on the laws of each country and region, and the purport that we will engage in discussion and dialogue with employees and their representatives with sincerity. We share and enforce this thinking with our group companies both in Japan and overseas. Additionally, we engage in various activities to utilize diverse human resources.
