Best Companies to Work For in Japan

HIOKI (Hioki Electric Co., Ltd.; Ueda City, Nagano Prefecture; President and CEO: Takahiro Okazawa) has been selected as one of the best companies in the medium-sized category (100-999 employees) by the Great Place to Work® Institute Japan (GPTW) in its 2021 ranking of the "Best Workplaces" in Japan. (100-999 employees). This is the first time that our company has been selected as one of the Best Companies to Work for in Japan.

Based on our corporate philosophy of "respect for humanity" and "contribution to society," we have been implementing various measures to improve the ease of working and job satisfaction.

In 2020, we formulated "Vision 2030," a vision of where we want to be in 10 years' time, by the management and openly recruited employees. This vision is shared by all employees of the Group, including the management, and is an ambitious initiative, with each organization voluntarily launching multiple projects. A culture in which each employee considers the meaning of his or her own work and its connection to the vision, and in which all employees take ownership and act as CEOs, has led to an increase in job satisfaction.

Going forward, the HIOKI Group will continue to support the creation of an environment that encourages high performance and new collaboration among employees under its "Vision 2030," and will work to further improve the "job satisfaction" of all employees.

Vision2030  Beyond Measure

Please note that only the HIOKI head office entered and was selected for this year's ranking of the Best Workplaces in Japan.
