Mental health care measures through close cooperation

Implementation of training and education focused on mental health care at various locations and companies

In regards to mental health, Teijin has established consultation services for employees both internal and external to the company and the Health Care Administration Office provides tailored mental support under the guidance of medical specialists.

In 2021, staff of the Health Care Administration Office (clinical psychologists, health nurses, nurses) and the external EAP (Employee Assistance Program) received a total of 2,658 consultations including online and telephone consultations. Preventive education for mental health is also carried out periodically. In FY2021, an online system was used for staff at the Health Care Administration Office to conduct various training sessions such as new employee self-care seminars and line-care seminars. In all, 23 online sessions were held, attended by approximately 1,000 individuals.

Implementation of a diagnosis to measure the "Iki-Iki" level of individuals and workplaces

The Teijin Group has been diagnosing stress levels in all workplaces in Japan every year since 2003. Furthermore, in line with stress check legislation, in July 2016 it implemented the annual initiative of a diagnosis to measure the iki-iki (cheerfulness) level of individuals and workplaces. This diagnosis combines the workplace stress diagnosis with a stress diagnosis for individuals.

Those workplaces which were diagnosed as exceeding a certain level were the focus of workplace improvement activities to achieve bottom-up improvement through discussions with employees in the field. The results of the June 2021 diagnosis (an effectiveness measurement) showed that these activities had led to improvements in around 75% of the workplaces concerned.

Furthermore, from FY2019, we have been conducting "briefings on how to view the results of diagnosis to measure the iki-iki (cheerfulness) level of workplaces" targeting managers and encourage each department to improve the understanding of the results of group analysis and the methods of utilizing it, and are working on promoting activities to improve the workplace environment.

Teijin will continue aiming to create cheerful and comfortable workplaces through these diagnosis and improvement activities.

Prevention and health promotion measures for health in collaboration with health insurance providers

The Teijin Group is collaborating with health insurance providers to implement a data health plan (Colla-Health) based on analysis of health data. This involves utilizing the data of individual employees held by our company and health insurance providers to roll out health insurance business narrowing down the target by risk type and deploying various health insurance businesses ranging from popular approach (approaching a particular group overall) to severe illness prevention.
