Promoting Workforce Diversity

Basic Views

One of the NH Foods Group’s corporate philosophies is for the company to be a place where employees can feel truly happy and fulfilled.
We believe that the ability of employees with diverse values to fully exhibit his or her capabilities leads to Group growth and development and contributes to society. The Group strives to create workplaces that motivate diverse human resources.

Ideal Human Resources Sought

The Group formulated Ideal Human Resources Sought by the NH Foods Group in 2013 as a policy and guide to growth for carrying out its corporate philosophies.
We believe that by indicating the ideals that employees should pursue as their objectives and positioning them as clear growth targets, everyone will be able to carry out their work duties while feeling a sense of growth.

The Group places Ideal Human Resources Sought that it seeks at the root of its human resource management systems, and undertakes human resource development for all Group employees.


Allowing a diverse range of human resources to play an active role in our business operations has been identified as one of our materialities. (NH Foods Ltd.)
