The Oiles Group has positioned diversity as a key management strategy. To enable human resources with diverse backgrounds to exploit their capabilities fully, we will foster a dynamic corporate culture and inclusive working environment as the cornerstone for raising corporate value.

We are implementing several initiatives to promote women’s participation and advancement. The Female Sales Unit and Female Engineer Unit were launched in 2020 and 2022, respectively, comprising female employees in the outside sales and engineering departments with low ratios of female employees.
The Female Sales Unit discussed ways to resolve difficulties in overcoming life events and balancing work with personal life. Concluding that a company-wide awareness change was necessary, they presented at an in-house event. They also tested the introduction of diverse work styles and are working to implement such a system.
Meanwhile, in addition to hiring more female graduates from the STEM fields, the Female Engineer Unit is also planning initiatives to raise interest in STEM among children.
The activities of these women’s units also offer opportunities for interaction between female employees in different departments, as well as solving problems in promoting female participation.
As part of our diversity efforts, we support the work styles of people with disabilities and strive to improve our operations and working environment. With the goal of continuing to hire more people with disabilities than the statutory employment rate of 2.3%, we will promote the creation of a workplace that encourages respect for the individuality of people with disabilities and enables them to make the most of their characteristics. We will also increase our recruitment activities so that more people with disabilities can work vigorously at our company.
