Shionogi defines its company policy as follows: Shionogi strives constantly to supply the best possible medicine to protect the health and wellbeing of the patients we serve.
We believe that to realize this company policy, it is important that each and every employee not only maintains and improves their own mental and physical health and works energetically, but also promotes the health of their family that support them, and builds a healthy and happy home.
Under this belief, Shionogi and the health insurance association will work hard together to nurture a corporate culture that prizes the health of employees and the families that support them, and to create a supportive environment to help them maintain good health.
Being fully committed to health for all, every Shionogi member will engage in their daily work and strive even harder to achieve the company policy.
In conjunction with the establishment of Shionogi Health Declaration 2014, Shionogi initiated its efforts to foster a health-conscious corporate culture. Considering that such efforts (health and productivity management[*1]) should be further strengthened to achieve SGS2020, we issue Shionogi Health Declaration 2018, with fiscal 2020 as its target year.
