Receives Highest Certification, "Eruboshi" Symbol, from Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare

Konami Digital Entertainment Co., Ltd. has been certified by the Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare as an outstanding company for promoting Women's participation in the workplace, and subsequently received the highest certification, the "Eruboshi" symbol, in July 2016.

In this certification system based on the Act on Promotion of Women's Participation and Advancement in the Workplace ("Act to Promote Women’s Participation"), of the many companies that have formulated and submitted general employer action plans, the outstanding few that have met a certain set of standards and have created an environment conducive to female participation are awarded the "Eruboshi" symbol by the Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare. Only those that have fulfilled all the five standards (recruitment, continued employment, ways of working such as working hours, ratio of women in managerial positions, and various career possibilities), and have released their results to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare website every year are awarded this certification.

In order to help ease employees' return to work from maternity and childcare leave, and support continuation of their careers, KONAMI’s range of policies have included extending measures such as reduced working hours, and financial assistance for childcare costs including daycare and babysitting expenses. The Konami Group will continue to further evolve an environment that promotes active workplace participation for female employees.
