At Fukui Byora we aim to create a continually growing enterprise through a workplace atmosphere that engenders "joy in working" and worth for each individual employee. We strive to create a fair atmosphere, where it is easy to work and keep a focus on workplace health and safety considerations. Our working environment raises the employees enabling them to increase quality in all aspects. We are committed to continual improvement, thereby ensuring quality manufacturing.
Through individual development, our employees can fulfill their roles both inside the home and the company, this is fundamental for a rich life. Our efforts to attain this ideal of a fully realized and diverse lifestyle, include our holiday system and various supporting systems.
In addition to the 3 approximately week-long vacation periods incorporated in the annual calendar of most Japanese manufacturing companies, at Fukui Byora we encourage all employees to take an extra 5 consecutive day paid vacation, at a time of their choosing, each year. Although this is exceptional in the industrial world of Japan, we feel that it guarantees the employee's relaxation in both mind and body ensuring new creativity and productivity in the workplace as well. The utilization of this vacation time is left up to the individual employee, whether to spend with family, hobbies, volunteer activity or utilizing personal study and growth opportunities. We promote personal and professional development.
Employees are the most important asset of any company. At Fukui Byora, we feel that in order to work productively, an employee must be healthy in both mind and body so, as a matter of course, we place a great emphasis on overall health, including mental health. Our program consists of a readily available counseling system, in cooperation with medical specialists, that supports employees who may feel insecure or troubled both regarding work and in their personal lives. In addition, we endeavor to create an environment which prevents the formation of mental health problems, and promote self-care and study job supervision and management as prevention measures.
Fukui Byora's paid holiday system allows unused annual days off to be carried over into the next year (limited according to years of service). In addition, holidays can be accumulated and used in the special holiday accumulation system for long-term medical treatment. Such long-term treatment can be both for the employee him/herself and also for long term nursing and care of family members. This system is unique in the industrial world of Japan.
