The NEC Group Code of Conduct strictly prohibits people at NEC from acting with prejudice on the grounds of race, belief, age, social position, family origin, nationality, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, and gender identity, as well as physical or mental disability, and strictly prohibits actions that belittle individuals, including bullying, harassment, child labour, and forced labour. Furthermore, the NEC Group Human Rights Policy sets out and advocates detailed policies for our initiatives on human rights based on the NEC Way and explicitly states that in all types of corporate activities we must respect the individuality of each person and not act in any way that may harm their dignity.
It is one of NEC’s management strategies to firmly establish a culture that is truly based on inclusion and diversity (I&D) in this way. We believe this is a source of innovation, and we are promoting initiatives on the following points.
To realize “the growth of the Company” and “personal growth and happiness” under our Human Resources (HR) Policy, NEC develops and fairly evaluates human resources, who play such an active and important role in our growth. We also promote the creation of productive, comfortable working environments.
We also work to create an environment where employees can work with ease and comfort and thereby display a high level of performance.
Recognizing that people are its greatest resource, NEC believes it is important to develop highly specialized professionals who can deliver true value to customers. Based on the NEC Way, we are working 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.
The Company is working to secure, maintain, and improve a working environment where people can work safely and healthily as a foundation for realizing its Purpose. To promote these efforts, we have stipulated the action guidelines in the NEC Group Safety and Health Policy and NEC Group Health Declaration.
As a company that operates businesses globally, NEC is committed to reducing and preventing any negative impacts its corporate activities may have on the human rights of its stakeholders. Also, by making use of ICT, including social implementation of AI and utilization of biometrics and other data, we believe that we can provide the social values of safety, security, fairness and efficiency.
Guided by the NEC Way’s Principles, which express the behavior that we value as a company, NEC is dedicated to “Uncompromising Integrity and Respect for Human Rights,” while the NEC Group Code of Conduct governs the individual conduct of everyone from executives to employees by clearly requiring respect for human rights in all situations. NEC has also detailed its policy for respecting human rights across its entire value chain in the NEC Group Human Rights Policy.
NEC has formulated the NEC Group AI and Human Rights Principles (the “Companywide principles”) to guide our employees to recognize respect for privacy and human rights as the highest priority in our business operations in relation to social implementation of AI and utilization of biometrics and other data (“AI utilization”).
In addition to facilitating compliance with relevant laws and regulations around the globe, the Companywide principles guide our employees to recognize respect for human rights as the highest priority in each and every stage of our business operations in relation to AI utilization, and enable them to take action accordingly.
The NEC Group Code of Conduct stipulates respect for human rights and privacy and the management of personal information, and NEC has positioned Provision and Utilization of AI with Respect for Human Rights (AI and Human Rights),” including personal information protection initiatives, as a priority anagement theme from an ESG perspective—materiality. From this perspective, we are tackling prevention of any privacy-related issues stemming from the handling of personal information in addition to undertaking other personal information protection measures.
In keeping with the spirit of “Better Products, Better Services” embedded in our Principles, in 1992 NEC formulated its “Customer Satisfaction Management (CSM) concept.” The CSM concept consists of “Significance,” “Activity System,” “Goal,” and “CS Action Plan.”
We have set up the Quality and Safety Action Policy, and we are conducting activities such as complying with product and service quality and safety laws and regulations, improving safe, reliable technologies, standardizing key components, sharing expertise, and taking steps to prevent defects and recurring issues.
We hope that all our employees will be confident in NEC’s quality policy by continuing to raise the quality of their own work, the products they create, and the services they provide. Also we hope to see “NEC Quality” become the preferred and trusted choice of our customers.
As stated in our Purpose, NEC has committed itself to creation of the social values of safety, security, fairness and efficiency to promote a more sustainable world where everyone has the chance to reach their full potential.
Guided by this concept, each member of NEC, from directors to employees, acts as a good corporate citizen by carrying out NEC Make-a-Difference Drive corporate citizenship activities aimed at resolving social issues over the medium to long term.
