Fujitsu Limited

Tokyo, March 11, 2024

Fujitsu today announced that it has been certified by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and the Nippon Kenko Kaigi (1) as a “Health and Productivity Management Organization – White 500” for the eighth consecutive year.

Fujitsu positions its people as its most important resource and implements initiatives to maintain and improve the health of its employees, with the aim of creating an environment where everyone can work positively and healthily both in mind and body. This is the eighth year in a row that Fujitsu has been selected for this award, based on evaluations of its health management organizational structure, external information disclosure, and implementation of lifestyle improvement measures.

Fujitsu will continue to actively engage in health management to achieve its purpose to “make the world more sustainable by building trust in society through innovation.”

Health and Productivity Management Organization - White 500

In its Medium-term Management Plan announced in May 2023, Fujitsu has set “improving people's well-being” as one of its essential contribution areas (materiality). This also means taking care of the well-being of each employee, which is a source of value creation, and Fujitsu believes that this is an important goal that management should address. Fujitsu defines well-being as “a state in which you can achieve the work and private life as you envision, and you have the discretion and decision-making power to achieve self-realization.” It no longer refers exclusively to physical health, but also mental health and a fulfilling lifestyle. Fujitsu promotes various measures to maintain and improve the physical and mental health of its employees and their families.

Fujitsu’s main health management initiatives

・Oral and dental health project

Fujitsu works on oral and dental health as a priority measure in health management. In addition to providing dental checkups by age group, preventive dentistry seminars were held, and the Fujitsu Clinic has been renovated into a preventive dental clinic for this initiative. Starting in January 2024, health education sessions about preventive dentistry for Fujitsu Group’s domestic employees were held to promote understanding of preventive dentistry.

・Bone health promotion project

In October 2023, Fujitsu started a field trial called the “bone health promotion project” with the aim of verifying the usefulness of bone assessments using chest X-rays and its effect on changes in employees’ health awareness and behavior. Fujitsu is working on early detection of osteoporosis by evaluating the bone condition of Fujitsu Group’s domestic employees who undergo health checkups using chest X-rays and providing preventive health guidance.

・Health initiatives for female employees

To coincide with Cervical Cancer Prevention Awareness Month in November and Women's Health Week in March, Fujitsu held seminars about the HPV vaccine, cervical cancer prevention, women's health, and health issues surrounding women. In addition to implementing and subsidizing the cost of gynecological examinations (cervical cancer and breast cancer screening), Fujitsu also uses nudge theory (2) to encourage people to undergo medical examinations, and promote actions to improve the rate of gynecological checkups and reduce risks.

Future Plans

In addition to providing continuous health education to its employees, Fujitsu also contributes to extending Japan's healthy life expectancy by delivering solutions to customers and society that utilize the knowledge gained from its health management initiatives. Under “Fujitsu Uvance,” which aims to realize a sustainable world, Fujitsu has created a medical and health data utilization platform (3) for medical institutions and pharmaceutical companies, to maximize life experience as part of its vision for “Healthy Living” which aims to contribute to the creation of a healthy society.

What is the “Health and Productivity Management Organization”?

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan and the Nippon Kenko Kaigi launched the “Health and Productivity Management Organization” certification program in fiscal year 2016 to recognize corporations that practice particularly excellent health management based on initiatives that address local health issues and health promotion initiatives promoted by the Nippon Kenko Kaigi. The number of companies applying has increased every year, making the system increasingly popular. “Health and Productivity Management Organizations” certification comes in two categories: “Large Corporation Category,” for large-scale companies, and “Small and Medium Enterprise Category,” for small and medium-sized companies.
