Basic Approach Toward Utilization of Diverse Human Capital
In 2003, we established the Teijin Group Basic Human Resources Policy, which calls for the implementation of our corporate philosophy of "Empowering our People" and improving our employees' quality of life.
We strive to maintain a healthy work environment that prevents the occurrence of discrimination or harassment based on race, skin color, ethnicity, nationality, language, ideology or beliefs, religion, gender, family or social origin, wealth, or other factors. Furthermore, we respect the individuality and diverse values of our employees, support skills and career development for individual employees, and aim to achieve harmony between employees' careers and personal lives. We also aim to maintain a comfortable working environment and introduce improvements, and support employees in fulfilling their potential.

Promotion of Female Employee Advancement
Since April 2003, the Teijin Group has implemented activities that promote the advancement of female employees. Within the Teijin Frontier Group, these activities are spearheaded by the Female Employee Advancement Committee and conducted in the context of the Corporate Climate Reform Project. Teijin Limited changed the name of its Female Employee Advancement Office to the Diversity Development Office in April 2007, and Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd. concurrently renamed its Female Employee Advancement Committee to the Diversity Development Committee, and further expanded its mission to realize a corporate culture in which women, as well as a wide range of other human resources, can function.
Pursuit of Optimal Work-Life Balance
In response to diversifying work perceptions among employees and CRS demands, the Teijin Group makes every effort to support activities that establish a work-life balance, thus enabling employees to engage in work duties while feeling a sense of fulfilment, achievement, and happiness.
In February 2008, Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd. received the Next-Generation Education Support Certification (Kurumin Mark) from the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare. The certification is awarded to companies that actively promote child care support in accordance with the Act on Advancement of Measures to Support Raising Next-Generation Children.
In addition, we have set up nursing-care leave and shortened working hour programs to ensure motivated employees with nursing care responsibilities do not have to resign.
Harmonious Relationships with Locally Employed Personnel
The Teijin Frontier Group operates its businesses globally through subsidiaries in eight countries and regions and overseas representative offices in six countries and regions. Its overseas representative offices and overseas subsidiaries employ local personnel, respect the culture and environments of the relevant countries and regions, and strive to achieve harmonious and mutually prosperous relationships with local communities.
