The Pioneer Group is working to achieve the ideal state for employees and the organization: to create an environment that encourages autonomous growth by prioritizing engagement between employees and the company.
We will strive to improve corporate value by providing an environment and opportunities that motivate and encourage growth to enable our worldwide team of diverse employees to autonomously take on challenges through fair competition and improve the value of human capital. To accomplish this, since 2020 we have been regularly conducting employee engagement surveys and using them to review management and personnel measures.

In an effort to ensure a safe and comfortable working environment that allows every employee to go about his or her duties with energy and vitality, the Group also places considerable emphasis on fair treatment with regard to both recruitment procedures and actual working conditions.

Pioneer actively promotes initiatives to help employees balance work and child/nursing care. In terms of balancing work and childcare, we provide proactive support, for example by offering training to employees who are going to take childcare leave and to their supervisors, sharing information while they are on leave, and having a program in place for employees returning to work.
Furthermore, we distribute leaflets explaining the child/nursing care programs and hold seminars to promote understanding of employees who take such leaves and to prevent employees from leaving their jobs due to childcare and nursing care.

Pioneer has established a Human Resources Management Policy that serves as a standard for hiring and managing employees and gives guidance on planning and operating its personnel systems and measures.
Providing an environment and opportunities
that motivate and encourage growth
Pioneer has shifted from creating a stable and equal environment that
emphasizes employee satisfaction to encourages autonomous growth by
prioritizing engagement between employees and the company.
Pioneer offers a range of training programs designed to help diverse human resources flourish.
The programs include not only those for learning necessary skills for work but also those for career development and self-development to provide employees in various life stages opportunities for autonomous growth and support their attainment of professional goals.
Main Initiatives, Systems, and Programs

Health management of employees is more than just a matter of health and safety, and Pioneer regards the development of both the Company and its people as an important management issue. Therefore, Pioneer takes a preventive approach to mental health care, holding seminars for employees, distributing promotional materials to raise awareness of the issue, improving its Health Care Section, and building a counseling service system. In addition, the Company has developed a program for helping employees who have experienced mental health issues to return to the workplace. We also consider helping employees balance work and medical treatment to be an important theme.
Pioneer’s measures for health management
Pioneer is working to ensure safe, hygienic workplaces where employees can work with peace of mind.
At Pioneer, we accord the highest priority to protecting health and safety. In accordance with this basic policy, the Global Health and Safety Committee, which manages and administers the Pioneer Group’s health and safety, is spearheading related activities covering not only employees but also all other stakeholders.
While health and safety had previously been addressed by each Group company and each business site, in June 2018 Pioneer established the Global Health and Safety Committee, which is under the direct supervision of the President, in order to implement further advanced activities throughout the Group.
The Global Health and Safety Committee aims to realize a comfortable and safe workplace as well as prevent hazards and ill health, and its activities include establishing rules for the Pioneer Group, monitoring progress of the health and safety initiatives at Group companies and service locations, and providing support through educational content. The committee meets twice a year (spring and fall) to inculcate and share awareness about the importance of health and safety while improving the level of initiatives through exchange of information.
