Konica Minolta, Inc. (Konica Minolta) announced that the company has been included in the Health & Productivity Stock Selection, a program for selecting companies that work on initiatives to improve the health of employees strategically from a management perspective. Konica Minolta has been selected for three years in a row and five times in total, following 2015, 2016, 2018, and 2019.
The Health & Productivity Stock Selection is a joint programme organised by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan and Tokyo Stock Exchange. It aims to encourage companies to promote “health management” by appraising companies that are attractive to investors who focus on improving corporate value over the long term. This time, 40 companies have beeen selected from those listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
Konica Minolta was highly evaluated in all four criteria: “management philosophy and policies”, “organised frameworks”, “systems and implementation of measures”, and “evaluation and improvement.” Selected from the electrical equipment sector, the company believes its efforts and accomplishments in data visualisation, which is promoted by collaborative health (integrated management by group companies and the Health Insurance Association) and health improvement through the PDCA cycle, were highly evaluated.
These efforts have been based on the principle of “promoting sound management by fostering a ‘health-first’ culture through the understanding that our employees’ health is the key to everything.” It is likely that the evaluation rose also due to the improvement of the occupational health system, including the increase of full-time industrial physicians from three to six last April.
