While these efforts have helped to motivate and develop the talents of the diverse group of people in Uzabase, there are a number of issues that still need to be addressed.
A noticeable information imbalance in terms of language
A disparity in terms of gender ratio among regular employees and leaders
Room for improvement when it comes to job opportunities for people with disabilities.
In our quest to tackle these challenges, we commit to incorporating the DEIB initiatives described below into our future business policy.
Ensure information transparency
We aim for fairness of opportunity, evaluation, and promotion within the company, and will ensure transparency of information.
Based on our value of “Be free & own it”, which guarantees to each one of us the freedom to think beyond the norm and to perform to the best of our abilities, we have been very open in sharing information, with consideration for privacy and confidentiality. We have also disclosed all information on remuneration and evaluation criteria within the Uzabase Group, including executive compensation and salary tables, to ensure that all of our team members are able to create reasonable and logical expectations for the future. By being thoroughly open about sharing this information, we ensure fairness in terms of assessment and promotion across the company.
Furthermore, as the nationalities of and languages spoken by our team members continue to diversify, we will actively work to resolve any language-related imbalances in terms of information shared by enhancing our interpretation and translation systems.
Help people to overcome hurdles arising from structural issues in society
While constantly discussing the difference between Equality and Equity, we will provide support for members with diverse personalities and characteristics to work in an Equitable manner. If we believe that a particular member has a hurdle arising from an issue in the social structure, we will work together to overcome that hurdle.
Specifically, we will consider updating our systems on an ongoing basis, including a work environment where diverse members can work comfortably, evaluation and feedback systems that allow them to demonstrate their strengths, and subsidy systems. In addition to the existing childcare fee subsidy system, we are planning to introduce a sick child care subsidy system, a nursing care allowance system, and paternity leave.
Reduce the gender disparity among regular employees and leaders
In order to reduce the current gender disparity amongst employees and leaders, we will take the following actions:
- Leadership training and personality/attribute-based mentoring support for female leaders and leader candidates
- Re-onboarding support following maternity/paternity leave
- Creation of series of articles on “role models” within the company
- Activities for internal communities, such as Career Juggling (for working parents) and Rainbow (LGBTQI+).
Set up a DEIB Committee and disclose DEIB-related metrics and policies on an ongoing basis
We will set up a DEIB Committee, which will also include external directors. The Committee’s goals will be to plan, develop, and implement measures (internally), as well as to monitor and evaluate the results of these measures (with the help of external advisors if necessary). Going forward, we will also regularly disclose general information on diversity, such as gender, nationality, and occupation ratios, as well as various other details regarding our diversity initiatives.
