February 21, 2019
Chubu Electric Power Co.,Inc.
Today, Chubu Electric Power was chosen as a brand for the 2019 Health & Productivity Stock Selection, jointly chosen by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and the Tokyo Stock Exchange for the promotion of health and productivity management (note).
(Note) Health and productivity management is trademarked by the Workshop for the Management of Health on Company and Employee and is about strategically working on managing the health of employees from a management perspective
The Health & Productivity Stock Selection Program selects companies engaging in outstanding health and productivity management out of the companies listed in the Tokyo Stock Exchange. The selected companies are introduced to investors who value increases in enterprise value in the long term to incentivize companies to engage in health and productivity management. As a general rule, one company is selected for each industry based on the health and productivity management investigation conducted by METI and the companies' financial statements.
Chubu Electric Power's mental health initiatives and the industrial health staff's excellent health guidance and consultations have been rated highly. Last year, we were recognized under the large enterprise category (White 500) of the 2018 Certified Health and Productivity Management Organization Recognition Program jointly carried out by METI and Nippon Kenko Kaigi. In addition to our efforts from previous years, we believe that this year our new initiatives to provide comprehensive medical inspections for all employees to spot and treat serious illnesses early on and to foster health awareness was valued highly, leading to the honor of being the first operator to be selected for the 2019 Health & Productivity Stock Selection.
Our company promotes work-life balance based on the belief that "life (healthy mind and body and a fulfilling life) is the foundation for employees to work in a lively manner". We will continue to pursue health and productivity management initiatives to help employees realize work-life balance. We will also continue to develop an environment that allows employees to achieve self-actualization through work to further increase market competitiveness.
