Respect for Human Rights
Across its various corporate activities, the Tose Group emphasizes respect for the fundamental human rights of all. This outlook is explicitly set forth in our Corporate Code of Ethics, which all employees read and pledge to comply with every year.
In cooperation with our suppliers and business partners, the Tose Group supports the International Bill of Human Rights and maintains and promotes working environments free of human rights abuses.
As our corporate slogan "generate excitement for the world" shows, we strive to plan, develop, and operate game software and content that thrill people around the world. To this end, we promote diversity so that all our employees can develop a global perspective, capitalize on their diverse individuality, and unleash their full potential.
● Supporting women's active engagement
We have an action plan in place in accordance with the Act on Promotion of Women's Participation and Advancement in the Workplace. Specific actions under the action plan include promoting women in leadership and increasing the share of female employees.
● Hiring foreign nationals
With our development bases in China and the Philippines, we are active in hiring foreign nationals. Close coordination between these foreign bases and our development bases in Japan helps us train our employees and broaden our global development structure.
● Promoting the employment of PWDs
We actively hire persons with disabilities (PWDs). We are not content with complying with the legally mandated employment rate for PWDs (2.3%). We are also committed to creating an environment where PWDs can enjoy working and feel that their work is rewarding.
Share of PWDs in our staff: 2.56% (FY2021)
