Since human rights issues are diverse, the Human Resources Department, Risk Management Department, and Social Value Creation Division are playing the central role in the initiative, working in partnership with the Shiseido Group companies. With regard to the Shiseido Group Standards of Business Conduct and Ethics and related policies and rules, we conduct regular training and education according to position and job type to deepen our understanding of the human rights of employees and to work to reduce human rights risks. We hold training sessions for top-level employees including the Global Headquarters officers and department directors in Japan, division/department heads of domestic and overseas offices, employees in various divisions/departments, and new employees once a year.
Employees of the Shiseido Group in Japan
At each business location in Japan, there is a Human Rights Enlightenment Promotion representative in each department, and the Human Resources Department conducts training for those representatives who themselves deliver human rights training to other employees in each of their respective departments. We are enlightening people to eliminate discrimination and prejudice on various human rights issues, such as social integration, women’s empowerment, children, people with disabilities, LGBT, and harassment.
