Toyota Systems' Challenges and Approaches
- Create a safe and secure society for people through development and activities to prepare for disasters and accidents
- We conduct development while giving due consideration to safety.
We also conduct evacuation drills, life-saving drills, and disaster stockpiling.
- Promote our contribution to society and economy by providing equal education and vocational training opportunities to everyone
- We have provided a variety of educational support to local students of elementary school/junior high school and persons with disabilities.
- Eliminate gender disparity and create a work environment where jobs are secured and are properly rewarding
- We have encouraged employees to take leave for childcare and nursing care.
We also employ persons with disabilities and implement training program for supporter.
We hold PC lesson classes at work support facilities for persons with disabilities so that every person may fulfil his/her ability in society.
In order to enable participants to learn the PCs skills required to work, experienced system engineers educate lessons including Excel, Word, and PowerPoint VBA during the transitional support period.
Lessons are made once a week at work support facilities for persons with disabilities, or are performed online, and the curriculum is set at a level and period according to each individual's situation.
As a result of such lessons, there are a plurality of cases in which participants successfully found jobs where job assignments are data entry operations. These are challenging efforts as an IT company which greatly contributes to society.
Going forward, we will not only improve PC skills, but will also try to challenge initiatives that offer people a sense of interest and enjoyment in IT.
Prevention of Workers' Compensation and Traffic Accidents
As part of efforts to create a safe and secure society, all people hold monthly health and safety meetings.
Sharing theme content and exchanging opinions on near-miss and other topics helps to raise awareness of health and safety issues. In addition, safe driving courses are provided to improve driving skills by reconfirming driving habits and dangerous behavior using images from drive recorders.
Commercial vehicles are equipped with a drive recorder that detects dangerous behavior such as sudden braking and steering wheels and provides immediate feedback to the driver. We also have a driving report function that analyzes drivers' driving skills, which is also useful for daily self-checks.
This is precisely because we are a company involved in automobiles, we aim to achieve zero traffic accidents and create a safe and secure society.

We clean up the beach every spring and autumn from the standpoint of environmental conservation and contribution to the local community. Cleaning is not limited to employees, but is also attended by families and persons with disabilities. As of 2019, a cumulative total about 3000 participants collected 1100 bags of garbage.
We collect scrapped PCs within the company and have persons with disabilities recover their PCs, and then donate them free of charge to each welfare facility. As of 2019, we donated 650 PCs to approximately 250 facilities.
Provision of disaster stockpiles
For disaster stockpiles such as food and water, we donate items with near expiration dates to our NPO named as "Second Harvest Japan". As of FY2019, 15,585 bottles of water and 3020 foodstuffs have been donated, and these have been properly distributed to people in need of living.
We collect caps of PET bottles in-house. We ask recovered caps to be sorted at welfare facilities and donate to the Vaccines Association. As of FY2019, 430,216 caps had been collected, and this enabled to donate approximately 493 vaccines.
Disaster relief funds
Donation activities are conducted both domestically and internationally to help rebuild the disaster-stricken areas. In the event of the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2012 and the Kumamoto Earthquake in 2017, our donations were used to repair houses and provide relief funds.
Sponsorship and donation
As one of special sponsors, we are participating in "the National Institute of Technology College (KOSEN) Programming Contest" for the purpose of supporting the development of engineers who will lead the IT industry in the future. We also donate to universities and sponsor sports events such as junior golf.
Data is exchanged as much as possible, necessary in the workflow, including the materials used at the meeting and for in-house manuals. In addition, we are promoting paperless activities by informing employees of salary statements and in-house magazines through online.
Electricity and gasoline
In-house offices have turned lights into LEDs. We are also adopting hybrid cars as company cars. In addition, in summer, we are promoting Cool Biz and Warm Biz in winter to reduce excessive use of cooling and heating.
We invite the families of our employees to the company to have the experience such as exchange business cards, enjoy an IT-based experience corner, and a game corner, which can be enjoyed especially by children. In addition, we distribute TS' brand sablè (biscuit) as novelty at the time of greements to customers and other means, which was made at the Work Support Center for Persons with Disabilities.
Compliance with Laws and Regulations
Through various e-learning courses and the publication of compliance newsletters, we are conducting activities to raise employees' awareness of in-house compliance. In addition, we have established a report desk as a legal consultation point and have also established and operated internal report system.
We have established policies and manuals to ensure effective and efficient business continuity in preparation for major risks such as disasters, incidents and accidents, and conduct drills. In addition, we prepare stockpiled supplies for disasters, and conduct awareness-raising activities by distributing disaster prevention goods to employees.
To promote the health of our employees, we hold RIZAP's group seminars and various events, such as walking events, as business trip health classes. In addition, we broadcast radio physical operations with original videos every day before working hours in the afternoon.
To prevent mental health problems (primary prevention), we conduct biannual surveys of stress factors, mental and physical awareness, and support from others around the environment. In addition, we are creating an internal environment that can be detected from a third-party perspective, such as a line supporter system and a workplace management survey.
Employment of Persons with Disabilities
We actively and directly employ people with disabilities, regardless of whether they are new graduates or their careers. We also hold a "Supporter Training Course for Mentally and Developmentally Disabled People" to help our employees with proper knowledge and understanding of mental and developmental disabilities.
Work style innovation
Each division of Toyota Systems Corporation decides on the frequency and day of the week, which promotes the retirement on time. In addition, we conducted a morning-style work recommendation campaign to offer complimentary breakfast to employees who came to the company by 8:0 a.m. to create an opportunity for each employee for raising awareness of time and be conscious of achieving results within a limited time.
Diversification of work style
We have introduced a 3DV (3-day-vacation) leave system that allows employees to use their annual holidays for 3 consecutive days, and 50.4% of all employees have taken the holidays. We take childcare leave and shortened working hours not only for women but also for men employees. In addition, we have a long-term service reward system and the introduction of telecommuting and flextime.
