Labor and Management cooperate to create a comfortable working environment.

Creating Employee-Friendly Workplaces

The Suntory Group respects and advocates freedom of association and the rights to collective bargaining in accordance with the laws and regulations in each country. We also recognize the importance and support freedom of assocciaiton and right to collective bargaining even in countries and regions that do not recognize them by law, and promote the resolution of challenges through the cooperation of labor and management. We have various councils that meet regularly to enable labor and management to study and discuss key management challenges we face. These include the Business Conditions Conference, the Finance Reporting Council, and division and topic specific councils. These councils hear statements from the labor union about shop floor conditions and both parties debate Suntory Group's management policies.
We operate and revise our programs involving human resources and labor based on thorough consultations rooted in mutual awareness of the issues. Through these relationships between labor and management we are enhancing subjectivity and transparency of company management while increasing effectiveness of various initiatives. Suntory Group's labor union implement unionship system*.
