As a company that operates its business globally, NEC believes that it is imperative to mitigate and prevent any negative impacts our corporate activities may have on the human rights of our stakeholders. We make it clear that we endeavor to respect human rights under all circumstances in the NEC Group Charter of Corporate Behavior and the NEC Group Code of Conduct, which are the foundations of our corporate activities.
NEC upholds the United Nations' (UN) International Bill of Human Rights*1, the International Labor Organization (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, and the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact*2. It also seeks to improve its initiatives across all Group companies on respecting human rights by taking into account trends in international standards and laws, such as the UN's Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the UK Modern Slavery Act, and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
- *1It refers collectively to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights which were adopted by the UN General Assembly.
- *2NEC has been a member since 2005. The 10 principles of the UN Global Compact are based on global agreements such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and ILO's Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work and include items such as support for the protection, maintenance, and respect for human rights, the eradication of forced labor and the prohibition of child labor.
Failure to consider these issues would be a serious risk for NEC as a provider of safe, secure, efficient, and fair services and solutions. On the other hand, by providing services and solutions that consider these issues we can provide highly reliable value to society, including our customers.
NEC has therefore positioned these personal information protection initiatives and "Privacy policies and measures aligned with societal expectations" as themes of its "materiality," the priority management theme from an ESG perspective. Moreover, we have studied the trend related to this framework of new laws and regulations and are addressing these problems regarding personal information protection or privacy.
Recognizing that people are the most significant resource, NEC believes it is important to develop highly specialized professionals who can deliver true value to customers. Based on the "NEC Group Core Values," NEC is aiming to develop human resources and an organizational culture that are able to continuously create value for society, constantly acting from a customer-oriented perspective with a high sense of ethical value and a deep understanding of the essential issues faced by customers and society.
Under the NEC Group Human Rights Policy, the NEC Group is promoting Inclusion & Diversity (I&D). This means we will value each person's individuality and will not act in such a way that may offend the dignity of any individual nor act with prejudice on the grounds of race, beliefs, age, social position, family origin, nationality, ethnicity, religion, gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability. In addition, we will work to build up each person's capabilities and experience value, not only through business activities, but also through our Company systems and training programs, creating a culture in which people can help one another to grow, with a view to facilitating business growth.
To realize "the growth of society" and "personal growth and happiness" our human resources, who play such an active and important role in our growth, are trained and fairly evaluated to help us realize the ideal work environment.
As a corporation that contributes to society through its business, NEC has established a system that fairly evaluates employees based on their contribution. We are bringing about a friendly work environment through discussions and by working with the workers union and management on issues covering the personnel system, benefit programs, the realization of work-life balance, and a work style by which all employees have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
NEC has established a basic philosophy as part of its "Companywide Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) Policy Action Guidelines" stating that "NEC should maintain and enhance a comfortable and supportive workplace to ensure the health and safety of all who work at its business sites." We offer various programs for safety and health focusing on preventive management.
