Nissan was named to the “Diversity Management Selection 100", a group 100 enterprises in Japan that leverage workplace diversity for competitive advantage, by the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI). Nissan was chosen for this honor in recognition of its work to actively promote diversity among its employees.
The “Diversity Management Selection 100" project started in fiscal year 2012. The project recognizes enterprises that have created better value through their management of initiatives which promote diversity. Organizations are selected based on the results achieved in areas such as innovation and improved productivity by using the various talents of its employees, including women, staff from different countries, the elderly, and people with disabilities.
Nissan has been actively promoting diversity to enhance the organization and create competitive advantages. Identifying and developing diverse human resources is part of the company's strategy to maximize the talents of its workforce for improved business results. The company has been actively promoting the advancement of women and developing a truly global approach to human resource recruitment and development.
Nissan continues to incorporate diverse viewpoints by mid-career recruitment, along with developing leaders at its manufacturing facilities and to pass on technical know-how. To improve the work environment, Nissan has assisted employees with balancing work and child care by establishing in-house daycare centers at three of its facilities in Japan.
Going forward, Nissan aims to deepen each employee's understanding of diversity in order to maximize the value diversity brings in building relationships with customers and potential customers. The company will continue its efforts to promote diversity as a source of greater competitiveness and as a bridge between Nissan and its customers.
