Diversity & Inclusion
  • 6% : Female managers
Human rights
  • 100% : Adherence to Supplier Guiding Principles across the Coca-Cola Bottlers Japan Holdings Inc. Group value chain

We respect the individuality of each of the CCBJH Group's employees, value continuous innovation by actively listening to diverse values and ideas, and actively work to promote diversity and inclusion. The Group is seeking to implement a more diverse management, and since last year, we have put in place a management structure that includes more international and female directors, allowing issues to be examined from more perspectives before decisions are made.
We will continue to provide opportunities for all employees so they can leverage their full potential, regardless of individual attributes and unaffected by factors that could restrict their ability to work.

Women in active roles

One characteristic of our diversity initiatives is to encourage women to play active roles. Our aim is for women employees to be active in all areas in the company and that a diversity of values and perspectives be reflected in all of our business activity.

"Dear Café" roundtable discussions with female directors

These roundtables offer a space in which female directors can explain the expectations for female managers in a meaningful way, and provide specific advice on any problems that participants may encounter on a regular basis.

Six-month "To Be" women leaders training courses

We are holding six-month leader training courses while working to enhance the career pipeline for women.

People with disabilities in active roles

Strong steps to expand opportunities for people with disabilities: opening ceremony for a special provision subsidiary

Having established a policy on diversity and inclusion, the CCBJH Group is providing opportunities for all employees to leverage their full potential by respecting the diversity of each and every member of its workforce regardless of his or her attributes, such as gender, age, disability, nationality, and sexual orientation. We are working to promote diversity with the aim of allowing all employees to be accepting of various opinions and values, while continuing to spur on innovation.
One of the CCBJI Group companies, Coca-Cola Bottlers Japan Benefit (CCBJB) Inc., received certification as a special provision subsidiary, a company that secures employment opportunities for people with disabilities. A ceremony to mark the opening of the new business was held on November 20, 2019.
Established to promote and provide stable employment for people with disabilities, the term special provision subsidiary refers to a company that has in place a supportive environment for people with disabilities and aims to enable them to work regardless of the level of disability.
With its certification as a special provision subsidiary, CCBJB is even more committed to expanding opportunities for people with disabilities and to the creation of proactive employment for them.

Corporate revitalization and communication

Friends & Family Fest 2019

To express gratitude to the families and other important people in the lives of our employees, and to deepen their understanding of CCBJI and help them gain a real sense of its appeal, we held Friends & Family Fest 2019 primarily at our Akasaka office on August 20, 2019.

We organized a fun program of events, including English language activities for kids, special drink-making and button badge-making, sports experiences led by Coca-Cola Red Sparks rugby players and athlete employees, and tours of office spaces that those attending would not normally visit.
Going forward, we will continue to make CCBJI a company in which every employee will take pride, and where anyone would want to work.

● Communication is always key

The key to success as an equestrian athlete is how well you can communicate with your horse. When riding, I am constantly thinking about how I can best get my horse to move with ease through a process of trial and error. Japan has four equestrian spots available for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. Above all, I want to secure my place on the team, and then be a rider who can help my teammates by passing on my experience from Athens.
Leading up to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, I decided on a change in environment, switching jobs a year and a half ago. I am always thankful for my supportive, warm, and understanding colleagues and a work environment that enables me to balance my work and sporting commitments.

● Being aware and careful in every situation

In the workplace, each person has their own roles and responsibilities, and we achieve results through cooperation. The same is true in goalball. Particularly, I focus on greetings, communication, and being thoughtful and considerate of others.
Upon joining the CCBJH Group, the major change from my student years was my desire to give back to my colleagues through my sporting achievements. I have come to believe that my mission is to show my appreciation to those who always support me by achieving good results in goalball. I will continue trying to achieve those good results while balancing my work and sporting commitments.
