Our management values
Through diversity initiatives and value engineering, which our construction business was among the first to adopt, we have established a business foundation that aims to improve product quality assurance and customer satisfaction, thus providing high quality and high added value.
Value Engineering is an engineering method for providing customers with high levels of satisfaction by determining the relationship between the work function demanded by the customers and the resources to provide that, and then proposing the optimal solution.
Fujita introduced value engineering (VE) way back in 1968, in an effort to bolster the company’s construction technologies, construction capabilities, expertise, and intelligence. Today, we carry out VE activities in every field and department.
As a company, Fujita has received the Miles Award numerous times in recognition of its outstanding value engineering activities. This is a prestigious award named after L.D. Miles, the originator of value engineering.
Diversity, training and education
Fujita drew up its “President’s Policy on Diversity” in 2008 and established the Diversity Promotion Office in 2009. Through diversity activities, we aim to produce a work environment in which all employees can thrive and make the most of their talents in the modern era of diverse lifestyles. Already, our policies have resulted in a threefold increase in the number of women working within Fujita.
At Fujita, we’ve built a human resource training system consisting of on-the-job training, off-the-job training, promotions, and public recruitment. We have adopted a CDP system that implements a human resource training program that takes individual fairness and desires into account, and this system establishes the groundwork for trainees to become professionals. We also have a career registration system that lets us verify the future goals of individual employees and follow up on their progress.
Fujita’s construction education activities target the children and young people of the next generation as well as the members of the community to convey the importance of craftsmanship through construction as well as consideration for the environment.
Business Continuity Planning
At Fujita, we have implemented business continuity planning in order to fulfill our corporate responsibilities even in the event of a major natural disaster (earthquake) or other difficult circumstances. In addition to maintaining safety confirmation measures and stockpile preparations, we are putting more effort into examining the safety checks, shelters, and stay-at-home/office measures to be followed during disasters and identifying yearly issues at our head office and branches, as we implement periodic training and ensure the effectiveness of these activities.
We are also developing a support framework for emergencies on a regular basis through close partnerships with the customers with whom we have accident cooperation agreements. These measures have been comprehensively evaluated and authorized by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism for our BCP manual.
