Tsumura Health and Productivity Management

Tsumura wishes for a long, vibrant, and healthy life for each of its employees. To this end, it has established the Health Declaration and the Health Policy to raise employees' health awareness and support them in their efforts to improve their health.

Tsumura Health Declaration

The Tsumura Group aims to contribute to people's health and the well-being of society as a company that upholds the corporate purpose of “Lively Living for Everyone.”

To this end, it is essential to provide a workplace environment in which each employee is physically and mentally healthy and can maximize their individual abilities.

The Tsumura Group declares that it supports its employees' autonomous efforts to maintain and improve their health through "Yojo* (healthcare)" and create a workplace environment where they can work with peace of mind.

  • Tsumura considers Yojo, or healthcare, as “living pleasantly in mind and body by paying attention to nutrition (food), exercise, sleep, and stress, enhancing the body’s natural healing ability, and promoting health.”

Management Message

Through its unique health management centered on Yojo, or healthcare, the Tsumura Group strives to create a workplace environment where employees are healthy in mind and body and can maximize their abilities, which will lead to higher productivity, engagement, development of their potential, and the realization of an organization analogous to Kampo medicines,* and contribute to people's health and the well-being of society through business management under the philosophy that upholds the corporate purposes.
Specifically, we practice Yojo, or healthcare, and implement the Tsumura Lifestyle Improvement Actions with the goal of improving health-related indices and engagement indices every year.

  • Each crude drug contains many components and has medicinal properties, and new pharmacological effects can be obtained by combining them with other crude drugs. We apply this relationship between crude drugs and Kampo products to our idea of a company organization, likening “people” and "departments" to crude drugs, and “departments” and “the company” to Kampo products, with the aim of creating a harmonious organization analogous to Kampo medicines.

Promotion Organizations

In the Tsumura Group, top management is responsible for health management, and promotes health management as an important corporate strategy through discussion, examination, and decision-making at the Executive Committee and the Executive Officer Meeting. As the core organization for health management, the Human Resources Department works with the labor union, the health insurance society, occupational health staff (industrial physicians and public health nurses), and personnel in charge at each site to plan and promote health management measures and ensure that they are disseminated to each employee.
