Our Focus on Social Issues
Since reaching a peak in 2008, Japan’s population has started to decline and is predicted to shrink to below 100 million by 2050. Furthermore, as Japanese birthrates continue to decline rapidly and the population continues to age equally fast, the size of the nation’s working-age population is also on the decline*. At the same time, during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have witnessed increased focus on employment, occupational health and safety, and other elements that involve human rights considerations in business, along with a broader acceptance of teleworking and other diverse work styles, which have suddenly taken off with the primary aim of curbing the spread of the disease. These trends suggest we might expect people at various stages of their lives to be able to continue working more easily in the future. In such an environment, companies are expected to uphold human rights, guarantee health and safety in the workplace, pursue diversity, create comfortable workplaces that respond flexibly to lifestyle changes, and help employees acquire new skills. In short, companies need to provide the support that enables individual employees to continue working enthusiastically towards rewarding goals.*Source: 2018 White Paper on Information and Communications in Japan, Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications
