Noevir Co., Ltd.
In my fourth year after joining the company to work in sales, I was appointed as a chief beauty instructor at our sales base.
While utilizing my sales experience, I am now working together with people inside and outside of the company who are taking on the challenge of reaching their targets and dreams and aiming to further grow myself.
I’m grateful for the corporate culture and environment at Noevir, where I am always given the opportunity to expand on new ideas and possibilities and build up my career.
Ph.D., Manager, Nov Academic Research Dept.
TOKIWA Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.
The R&D (NOV) Business Division is currently conducting clinical evaluation on products for customers following research and development at laboratories.
Seeking to further improve my skills and techniques, I received the opportunity to learn more as a dermatology researcher and in 2016 became a medical doctor.
I’m very grateful for an environment that provides opportunities regardless of gender or age, and want to utilize my newly acquired knowledge and techniques in my work going forward.
Employing a Wide Range of Human Resouces
Overseas Business Division
Noevir Co., Ltd.
Together with employees from a variety of countries, I am striving daily to carve out new markets overseas, raise recognition of the Noevir Group in foreign countries and connect this to expanding sales.
Within the company there are exchanges of various perspectives and opinions and new innovations are being created daily. I feel the worth of my work, which enables me to leverage my strengths as a non-Japanese.
Retiree Re-employment System
Initiatives for Changing Workstyles
To improve employee creativity and productivity and aiming to create innovation we realize a variety of working styles not bound by time or place.
Introduction of Telecommuting
Introduced telecommuting where employees can select a workplace matching the needs of their work. The objectives are to enable new concepts or ideas to arise in a different environment, realize more effective use of time and raise productivity.
Introduction of Freely Changing Desks
Employees working in the Tokyo head office may change their desks freely, enabling lively exchanges of opinion across sectional boundaries.
Company-wide Leave Work on Time Day
Employees are recommended to leave work on time every Wednesday. We strive for self-awareness, raising time management awareness to accomplish work efficiently within working hours and use time outside of the company for physical and mental refreshment.
Promotion of Using Paid Vacation Leave
Introduced paid vacation leave to celebrate commemorative occasions or important dates for the employee or their family members, including birthdays, anniversaries and the like. We also recommend planned use of vacation leave through applications made quarterly via a leave planning chart.
System to Support Work-Life Balance
The Noevir Group supports employees in leading lives that enable them to balance both work and their homes and to lead fulfilled lifestyles. We have devised a variety of measures to support a work-life balance to enable an enhanced career while going through childbirth, child-raising or nursing care.
|Childcare leave||Can be taken until the child is 3 years old|
|Short-term childcare leave system (encouraging employees to take childcare leave)||Five days (paid leave) can be taken until the child is 3 years old|
|Hourly Leave System||We enable up to a limit of five days of the annual leave given out each year to be used on an hourly basis (with a maximum of 40 hours)|
|Shorter working hours for childcare or nursing care||A system enabling shorter working hours of up to two hours per day is offered until March 31 of the year in which the child ends third grade at elementary school. Multiple applications are permitted.
A system enabling shorter working hours of up to two hours per day is offered for those providing required nursing care. Multiple applications are permitted.
|Nursing care leave||Up to three times of nursing care leave (93 days in total) can be taken for each person who needs the care|
|Child nursing care leave||Up to five days (unpaid leave) can be taken to care for a sick or injured child up until they have started elementary school. (Unpaid leave can also be taken on a half-day or hourly basis)|
Consideration to occupational safety and health
Employee health management
In April 2018, we began to provide assistance to employees’ health promotion efforts, taking a management approach that places even greater emphasis on ensuring employee health.
Human Rights Awareness Activities
The Noevir Group employee code of conduct includes “respect for human rights,” “prohibition of harassment” and “prohibition of all forms of discrimination.” With the objective of further raising awareness of compliance with laws and regulations, we use measures such as level-based training and inviting outside lecturers to provide training and awareness-raising activities regarding fair employment selection, sexual harassment and power harassment.
Medical Consultations for Employees
As a company that creates beauty and health, the Noevir Group has established a system where employees can easily undertake a self-diagnosis or consult with an external institution to maintain their physical and mental health.
