Basic Policy

With Employees (Responsibility to Employees)

Upholding the corporate motto “Enjoy your work”, the MEC Group continues to be a corporate group in which each employee is pleased to work and proud of being a member of the MEC Group, and can enjoy greater happiness.

Working environment

The premise of our Company is respect for human rights, and we clearly state that treatment that ignores human rights, such as child labor and forced labor, is strictly prohibited. When hiring people, we check their age with official documents and make strict rules to ensure there is no dishonesty.

Respect for human rights policy

Respect for human rights is a major premise for our operations. By clearly stipulating prohibition of child labor and forced labor, we demonstrate our determination to respect human rights. When hiring, we make sure that there are no fraudulent rules, such as stating the age in official documents.

Preventing Harassment and Discrimination

We distribute the "Labor and Ethics Guidelines" prepared based on the RBA Code of Conduct, which is a code of conduct for the electronics industry, to all officers and employees to raise awareness of the need for harassment prevention. At the same time, we are working to prevent harassment by posting the guidelines in our in-house database, disseminating specific cases of harassment, and providing training.
The guidelines also state that we will not discriminate in terms of employment, promotion, or salary increases based on nationality, place of origin, gender, sexual minority (LGBTQ+), etc.

Freedom of association

Although we do not have a labor union, we do declare that we respect the legal rights of our employees (such as participating in collective bargaining).

Diversity and inclusion

We are actively promoting diversity and inclusion to become a company where people of all ages, genders, races, nationalities and disabilities with a variety of personalities and values can play an active role in driving innovation and growth in the Company.

Work-life balance

We have introduced various systems related to employment and are working to realize flexible work styles for employees.

Other initiatives

Encouraging the active participation of human resources regardless of gender

Since our company‘s founding, we have not discriminated between men and women based on the same job category. Therefore, we operate a single pay table for all regular employees as full-time employees. Regardless of gender, each person plays an active role according to their abilities.

                                   Gender pay gap (FY2022)

*At the MEC Group, the wage structure is set by position. There is no gender pay gap, and the wages of men and women in the same position is the same. The differences that exist are attributable to differences in the gender composition ratio for each position.

Promotion of male employees taking child-rearing leave

We introduced the child-rearing leave system in FY1991. The first childcare a male employee took was in FY2008. Since then, male employees have taken childcare leave as needed. Since FY2020, we have promoted the proactive participation of men in child-rearing, and by instilling an understanding of the need for a balance between work and child-rearing, the percentage of male employees who take childcare leave has greatly improved to 66.7% in FY2022. We will build a more productive work environment by encouraging each employee to practice self-directed work styles.

Building engagement

We continually conduct employee awareness surveys for the purpose of improving the workplace environment, confirming the relationship between the company and employees, and confirming the situation within departments. This applies to all employees, including temporary employees.
