Equal Opportunities for Women

Action plan

Since fiscal 2011, our efforts to raise employee consciousness about gender equality have included lectures and seminars of employees by specialists from outside the company. As a result, we have been conducting manager training, which we believe is essential to creating diversity in women's career choices and understanding at the workplace so that women can play a more active role. We also seek to nurture a more ambitious approach to work on the part of female employees and prepare them for managerial candidacy by holding "Glory Women's College program" as well as other means of invigorating our female workforce.In fiscal year 2016,Glory formulated an action plan based on Japan’s Act on the Promotion of Women’s Participation and Advancement in the Workplace, and has been creating a more inclusive workplace ensuring there is more female representation.

Supervised by task instructors, the workers enthusiastically carry out their work with a common motto: " Foster a creative working environment by valuing communication with one another and fully demonstrating our skills ". Their jobs include groundskeeping at Group companies, sorting internal documents and mail, and managing industrial waste.


Rehiring Elderly Workers

We have established standards for employment extension in accordance with the Act on Stabilization of Employment of Elderly Persons and in addition to securing our workforce this allows us to make effective use of our employees' stores of experience and knowledge.


Work–Life Balance

Glory has in place numerous initiatives aimed at promoting a work-life balance. These initiatives enable employees to match their job and work schedule to their lifestyle while maximizing their abilities and career potential.

Work-Life Balance Support Systems

Balancing Work and Parenthood

G Kids Home

G Kids Home

Employees can take advantage of systems that allow them to place equal importance on raising children and doing their jobs.In December 2016, Glory opened an in-house daycare center called "G Kids Home" for children of full-time Glory employees. The daycare center caters to children aged from 57 days up to the age at which they enter elementary school. Knowing that their children are taken care of on company premises gives parents peace of mind. Since April 2017, The company has also provided subsidies for parents working full-time at Glory sites (other than the Glory head office) to hire childcare services. Such measures support employees by placing an equal importance on career development and parenthood. We received the Next-Generation Certification Mark (known as the "Kurumin" mark) from the Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare in 2013 in recognition of our policies based on the Act on Advancement of Measures to Support Raising Next-Generation.

Balancing Work and Caregiving

Glory helps employees to balance work time with time spent caring for sick or elderly family members. In fiscal year 2016, Glory extended the period for nursing care leave from 180 days to 365 days per family member. Other improvements to the nursing care leave system include allowing leave in separate batches and extending the period during which employees may reduce their daily working hours.

Reducing Long Hours of Work

Glory strives to modify work processes and schedules in order to reduce constant bouts of long work hours. This helps to bolster employees’ mental and physical well-being and maintain their motivation for work. In an effort to impress upon employees the importance of working efficiently so as to avoid overtime, Glory has instituted "no-overtime days" and "no-overtime weeks". And to encourage employees to go home on time, the company has also put a limit on the number of overtime hours they can work each day.


Fair Evaluation and Treatment

Created with the goal of establishing a motivating work environment, our evaluation system, which applies to all employees, encompasses the setting of targets and evaluation of results, as well as the creation of opportunities for individual consultation with superiors.Our Personnel System Guidebook concerning the Evaluation/Treatment/Remuneration System is made available to all employees, with the results of evaluations also disclosed to employees individually, thus increasing fairness, transparency and credibility.
