We especially position the promotion of active roles played by women in workplaces as a key measure, in the form of Career Design Training and Career Interviews, which address human resource development from a medium- and long-term perspective. Also, in terms of the promotion of compatibility between working and child-rearing, we launched the RenaiFami+ Project, which hosts volunteers striving to create a corporate culture and environment where everyone can assume active roles through various working group activities.

The Japan Sports Agency established this program in FY2017 as a way of recognizing companies that proactively encourage employees to engage in sports to improve their health. The aim of the program is to nurture a social trend towards sports and encourage people in the “prime human resources” age-group—which tends to have insufficient exercise—to engage in sport.
Since announcing the RENAISSANCE Health and Productivity Management declaration, RENAISSANCE has strived to improve the health of its employees. The certificate was presented to the company in recognition of its efforts, which include proactively supporting employees to participate in running events and sports tournaments and allowing employees to participate in sports club activities in the studios where they work on days when they are closed or before opening hours.
In addition, RENAISSANCE has successfully applied for certification under the Sports Promotion Company Certification Program (FY2019) organized by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government. Under the program established in FY2015, the Bureau of Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 Preparation presents certificates each year to companies that actively encourage their employees to participate in sports activities or which are engaged in activities that contribute to society in the field of sports.
Having announced the RENAISSANCE Health and Productivity Management declaration, RENAISSANCE has promoted a proactive program of health support for employees in conjunction with a systematic reform of employees’ working styles. The company has also fostered and encouraged various in-house club activities, while continuously promoting a wide range of initiatives such as encouraging head office employees to participate in fitness training. RENAISSANCE has been awarded the certificate five years in row since FY2015.
RENAISSANCE plans to continue its promotion of sports and other activities to improve the health of its employees. The company will also strive to undertake activities that will further benefit the broader community in the area of sports and health improvement.
