Received “Kurumin Certification” for Our Initiatives to Support Childcare
KOKUSAI ELECTRIC CORPORATION (President and CEO: Fumiyuki Kanai, Head Office: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan) is pleased to announce that we have been awarded the Kurumin Certification by the Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare, in recognition of our initiatives to support childcare.
The Kurumin Certification is a recognition from the Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare for companies that provide outstanding support for childcare. Under the Act on Advancement of Measures to Support Raising Next-Generation Children, companies that have formulated general business owner action plans and achieved the goals provided for in the plan can apply for this certification upon meeting set criteria. Receiving this certification from the Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare marks their commitment to supporting childcare.
Aiming to help achieve a balance between fulfilling work and a prosperous, healthy life, we have put in place and enhanced measures to facilitate both professional responsibilities and roles in childcare and caregiving. We have communicated our commitment to the Act on Advancement of Measures to Support Raising Next-Generation Children through a top-level message to ensure its widespread awareness within the company. To create an environment to empower employees balancing work and parental responsibilities, we have rolled out a “Childcare and Work Balance Support Fund” starting April 1, 2017, covering expenses such as childcare and after-school program fees.
Upholding our corporate slogan “Technology & Tai-wa for Tomorrow,” we will continue to commit ourselves to pursuing economic, environmental, and social value through our combined efforts of business operations and ESG programs. Following this approach, we will contribute to achieving the SDGs and support a future where creativity and innovation can thrive.
