People -Fair Employment and Treatment-
At the Otsuka Group, all activities relating to employment, such as recruitment, staffing allocation, performance evaluation, promotions, and transfers, are done under a fair employment policy based on the Otsuka Group Global Code of Business Ethics. We don’t evaluate employees unfairly based on race, skin color, nationality, heritage, gender, gender identity, religion, marital status, pregnancy, disability, etc., but we try to realize every possibility an individual has by establishing a fair, open, and equal workplace. Regarding compensation, the compensation is paid fairly at a rate compared to the same level of function in each area.
We conduct an employee satisfaction survey each year at Taiho Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. and Otsuka Pharmaceutical Factory, Inc., and provide feedback from the results inside the company. Moreover, a survey regarding harassment for all employees at Taiho Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. is conducted each year. We proactively work on prevention of harassment by building a system in which not only harassment that has been experienced by an individual can be reported, but also harassment witnessed to those around you can also be reported.
