Considering the life and career of every individual

CCBJH Group promotes diversity and inclusion, and is cultivating a shared corporate culture in which the human rights and individuality of all employees are mutually respected. Our greatest strength lies in the multifaceted and diverse group of employees we have nurtured in an environment where everyone can realize their full potential, regardless of gender, nationality, or any other difference. For this section, we asked employees from a variety of backgrounds to talk about their lives and careers.

Building a strong career for a fulfilling life

TakashimaI am an athlete-employee aiming to compete in the Tokyo 2020 equestrian events. My primary responsibility is the management of employee data. I only spend a few days a week at the office since my work format takes my training time into account. Because of this, I make sure to proactively communicate with others and always confirm everything with other offices. I am busy every day with work and training, but I like to recharge by spending my free time playing with my daughter. On days off, I love to go out to various places with my family.

Azusa Iribe

IribeI am responsible for developing new deals with major railroad groups. My children are still young, so I have currently opted for shorter working hours. I make a conscious effort to create time and use it well. I adjust my routine to avoid lost time, make sure to finish my work ahead of schedule, and strive to ask specific, efficient questions. In these ways, I work to produce results within my limited amount of time with the cooperation of my team members. Like Mr. Takashima, I focus on my children in my private time. I want to be there to see even their little achievements when I can, to make up for the time when I am at work and cannot be with them.

The key to producing results under time restrictions is to consciously make time and use it effectively.
I use even small amounts of time to get work done.

KataokaI am responsible for operating a blower machine that forms PET bottles at the Akashi Plant. My top priority is quality. We work under a rigorous quality management system, and with the motto “Do what is supposed to be done as a matter of course,”I always work to ensure none of what I produce is defective. Also, I have to take extra care of my health because I have irregular shifts. I always make sure to take in some sunlight in the mornings, and I am careful to get enough sleep after a night shift in an effort to establish a rhythm for my body. On my days off, I usually relax at home, but I started going to the gym a few months ago and would like to keep it up. It would also be nice to have a pet.

MolrotI manage in-house IT applications and overall IT system maintenance. I believe that a healthy mind and body are essential to doing a good job, so I make an effort to eat well every day and get up and move around regularly. Moreover, as a manager, I want to make sure my team is in good condition as well, so I respect their various work styles, abilities, and personalities when allocating responsibilities. My job is demanding, so I don’t have a lot of private time on weekdays, but on my days off I try to refocus and completely throw myself into what I like. I revitalize with activities that let me enjoy nature, like motorcycling, scuba diving, and hiking, as well as visiting art museums and galleries.

Further efforts and new goals

TakashimaMy goal now is to participate in the World Equestrian Games in 2018. Then comes Tokyo 2020. I will be entering a lot of competitions going forward, including overseas games, and I want to do my best to earn high scores. At the same time, naturally, I will still be doing my job well.

IribeSince joining the company I have been building up experience in sales, but I still feel that my practical knowledge is insufficient. I want to become more skilled at conversing with all kinds of customers. As for my private life, when my children are a bit older and I have more time to myself, I would like to try running a marathon.

KataokaThe machine I am currently in charge of has always been operated by a man until now, so that makes me its first woman operator ever. In a way, I am a test case to see if my work can be assigned to women in the future – so it feels very worthwhile to me. I want to keep taking on challenges so my work can open up new paths for junior female employees.

I will continue taking on new challenges to become a role model for future generations of female employees.

Molrot“The first woman operator” has a good ring to it, doesn’t it? The CCBJH Group is encouraging women to be more active in the workplace, but I think the scope of these efforts must be widened even further going forward. For example, there are still only a few women working in management positions. I would like to help create systems that enable talented female employees to step up into management.

I would like to widen our efforts to encourage women’s full participation.
I will support these kinds of initiatives in various ways.
