As a means for helping realize its Medium-Term Management Plan, Nikon is promoting a group-wide program for employees called FUTURE IN FOCUS, which aims to create an environment for diverse employees to actively contribute in a wide range of fields within the Nikon Group, regardless of their nationality, ethnicity, or gender. Specifically, the program includes an employee training and evaluation system linked to core competencies, based on the Nikon Group HR Vision. Nikon has begun successively introducing the system throughout the Group.

In addition, Nikon has put in place various systems for supporting diverse working styles among employees, and is carrying out initiatives aimed at ensuring healthy and safe workplace environments.
