Relationship with Our Employees

Initiatives for Women in the Workplace

The INTAGE Group respects diverse values and individuality, and seeks to employ a wide range of people. Our policy is to provide equal employment opportunities and ensure equal treatment of men and women, and we do not have different pay scales for male and female employees.

Based on a new law to promote the role of women in the workplace in Japan, INTAGE has set the goal of having women fi ll 25% of executive positions by the end of March 2021. In fi scal 2016, we began efforts to encourage women to take an exam for appointment to executive positions.

As of May 2016, the INTAGE Group overall had three female officers, and four including an outside director.

In addition, we conduct the IMR (QWL) Employee Survey once a year as part of our support for employees. This survey gauges employee satisfaction and mental health, and the results are one of the items used to evaluate each Group company.

Environmental Conservation Efforts

Energy Usage

The INTAGE Group operates a data center, which is an energy-intensive business. Electricity use at the Hibarigaoka Office is particularly high due to the largescale equipment deployed there. This office is considered a Type 2 specified business operator under the Energy Saving Act and a specified business operator under the Tokyo Metropolitan Ordinance on Environmental Preservation. Therefore, it is promoting environmental measures including reduction of energy use and waste in cooperation with an energy service company (ESCO),* as well as green purchasing. As a result, the amount of electricity used has been declining annually.
* A company that provides services related to improving the energy effi ciency of buildings.
