Initiatives within the company
Communication at the cafeteria
Mitsuhashi Corporation offers a cafeteria for our employees. If you order from the menu when you arrive at the company, you can enjoy a freshly made meal at lunch time. The cafeteria is a place for relaxation where employees gather at lunch time to enjoy each other’s company or simply eat while enjoying their own time.
Collaboration between Departments via screens
Monitor screens are installed on each floor at Mitsuhashi Corporation. Employees can see via the monitor screens how other Departments in the Kyoto Sales Headquarters, Tokyo branch office, Headquarters building, and at the plants are doing. This system was invented to help our employees collaborate within the company and immediately correspond to our clients without delay.
In order to promote the health management of employees, Mitsuhashi Corporation encourages 100% regular physical examination in the company, and we implements policies such as no-smoking during working hours.
