For a fourth consecutive year, NYK has been recognized in the large enterprise category of the Certified Health and Productivity Management Organization Recognition Program, a cooperative initiative by Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and Nippon Kenko Kaigi.*
The program selects companies engaging in efforts to advance health and productivity management and providing outstanding health management in collaboration with insurers.
To strengthen its health and productivity management, NYK collaboratively launched a health-promotion project in April 2015 with the NYK Health Insurance Society. Since then, NYK has been exchanging information and sharing issues with the insurance society regularly. At its head office, NYK has a clinic that is staffed with a company doctor and internists, who provide medical consultations for employees and support employees willing to attempt to quit smoking. NYK also encourages all employees to get annual health checkups.
Recognizing that employee health is the foundation for its business activities and one of its highest priorities, NYK will continue to examine effective methods to improve employee well-being.
