ROHM has been honored as “Sports Yell Company 2021” by Japan Sports Agency for the first time.
This system was established in 2017. The purpose of this system is to improve the sports implementation rate of the entire nation by improving the social reputation of companies that promote the creation of an environment in which employees can become familiar with sports.
Companies that are actively engaged in sports to improve the health of their employees, not only sports competition but also providing exercise opportunities such as gymnastics and stretching during the morning and lunch breaks, encouraging the use of stairs, walking and commuting by bicycle, and holding standing meetings, are certified as “sports yell company”.
This was the first time for ROHM to apply for the system, but the campaign promotion activities throughout the business establishment were recognized and certified.
ROHM has organized a “Health Promotion Committee” to promote the health of its employees. Walking events for employees and their families have been held since 1991, and in 1998 became the first Japanese company to ban smoking during working hours.
At present, we continue to be engaged in activities such as holding exercise seminars and implementing the “Body Improvement Project,” which provides health promotion support to those who wish to participate.
The company promises to continue its efforts to maintain and improve the health and work-life balance of every one of their employees by placing “creating a comfortable work environment and maintaining and promoting physical and mental health” as one of their top management priorities.
