Employment of People with Disabilities

From the viewpoint of realizing social responsibility and normalization (engaging in mutual assistance with disabled and seniors), we actively employ people with disabilities and strive to improve their working environments. To improve the working environment and make it easy for people with disabilities to work throughout the entire Fujikura Group, we will naturally achieve the statutory employment rate of 2.3% mandated from March 2021. We are also aiming to realize social responsibility and normalization.

Special Subsidiary "Fujikura Cube"

The Fujikura Group basic principle on diversity states, “Create a corporate culture that encourages a range of human resources to proactively understand mutual characteristics, utilize their respective strengths, and make the most of their abilities.” We actively seek to employ people with disabilities and realize diversity and inclusion based on this principle.
We are committed to complying with increases in the statutory employment rate to 2.3% under the national government’s policies aimed at realizing a society of coexistence where people with disabilities can live and work as a member of their own communities.
As of April 1, 2023, we currently have a total of 32 employees, including 21 individuals with disabilities. We provide support services in eight different areas, namely greening, farming, welfare, laundry, gardening, printing, document digitization, and processing/manufacturing, specifically for various companies within the Fujikura Group.
Fujikura Cube hopes to contribute to the regional employment of people with disabilities by expanding and enhancing the content of services provided and improving operating efficiency of the entire Group.
In addition, in October 2020, Fujikura Cube will receive a "Smile a lot! Friendly Office" certification. Under Chiba Prefecture's certification system for excellent offices for employment of persons with disabilities, offices that improve and devise employment management and workplace environment and make efforts for continued employment are certified, and through the introduction of examples of such efforts, contribute to the understanding and promotion of employment of persons with disabilities in the region.

According to our company's policy, we are actively engaging in the following activities with the keyword "symbiosis".

1. In November 2022, our new employee, Masahira Yamamura, participated in the cleaning category of the Abilympics 2022 held in Chiba Prefecture. The Abilympics is an annual national competition for people with disabilities to showcase their skills acquired in the workplace. This was the first time that a member of the Welfare Team from Fujikura Cube participated in the Abilympics Chiba (regional qualifying tournament), and Yamamura entered the "Building Cleaning" category. The tasks included carpet cleaning with a vacuum cleaner and floor cleaning with a floor mop. Not only the final results but also the procedure and speed were strictly checked. Yamamura, who is responsible for daily cleaning at Fujikura Cube's dormitory, smoothly carried out the cleaning tasks with skillful movements throughout the competition. Unfortunately, he did not win any awards this time, but he aims to apply the experience gained from this event to his daily work, improve his abilities in his area of expertise, and strive for a comeback next year.

2. Ayumi Ando, in her fourth year with the company, was selected as one of the representatives of the Para Swimming team and participated in the "Vichy 2023 Virtus Global Games" held in France in June. This event is a comprehensive international sports competition organized by Virtus, the International Federation for Intellectual Impairment Sports, overseeing sports for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Athletes from over 80 countries and regions gathered to compete in 12 sports including athletics, swimming, table tennis, and tennis. Ando competed in both individual and team events and achieved remarkable results, including winning a silver medal (a new record for Japan) in the 2x200m freestyle relay.
